Friday, December 14, 2012—Wine Tasting

The weather in the RGV has warmed nicely, with highs in the low 80s, perfect for pool time. We don’t where time goes, but it seems to fly by.  We depart for a short visit home just a week from today.

Wine storage tanks, Post Familie WineryWith highs in the mid-80s, we spent a couple of hours at the pool and hot tub, and it sure eases the muscle aches and joint pains from lots of activities combined with age.

This afternoon, the resort hosted a wine tasting party; the premise is for participants to bring a bottle of wine from their state or province, and an hors d’oeuvre.  The wine tasting was better attended than we expected, and there were quite a few sweet white wines compared to dry whites and reds which I prefer; this surprised us, but folks seem to be drinking what they like instead of what is traditional—good for them!  We took a sweet, sparkling white wine from Post Familie Vineyards in Altus, Arkansas, which we visited in October, and it went quickly, as did Kay’s hors d’oeuvre of cream cheese covered with pepper sauce.

We finished the day by watching a few more episodes of Downton Abbey.
