Majek Vineyard & Winery
GET EXCITED! We are proud to announce the first of two featured wineries at this year’s October 8th event: Majek Vineyard & Winery
From their website (www.majekvineyard.com):
“Majek Vineyard & Winery is a boutique Central Texas winery located in the scenic rolling hills off I-10, near Houston, Austin, and San Antonio…
Our vineyard & winery are developed on historic family property with a legacy of wine-making. Memories of family gatherings including music, food, and Grandpa’s Czech homemade wine have led us to develop a venue to share our passion for Texas music, local artists, and Texas wine. Our roots are reflected in everything we do, from our native sausage and cheese plates, First Saturday music, or by just sharing a beautiful place and a nice glass of wine with old friends and new. Our working 1.5 acre vineyard includes Blanc Du Bois and Black Spanish grapes.”
It is owned and operated by Lynne and Randy Majek.
Wines available for tasting on October 8th:
Sparkling Blanc Du Bois @ On the Square Flooring
Majek Sparkling Dry Blanc Du Bois, delightfully fruity with light sparkles and no bitter aftertaste! Perfect for brunch, for a light summer drink, or for any special occasion!
Cardinal’s Crown @ Wharton Journal-Spectator
Majek Cardinal’s Crown is a delicious blend of Texas Merlot, Cabernet, and Primitivo. Smooth and rich, this dry red wine is a perfect complement to steaks, roasted chicken or pork. Enjoy!
Garnet Dry Red @ Wadler, Perches, Hundl, & Kerlick
Garnets, a symbol of abundance and prosperity, have been mined and shared in the Czech Republic since the Middle Ages. With Majek Garnet Dry Red Wine, a blend of Favorite, Petite Verdot, and Malbec, we honor our heritage in the way we know best, through the sharing of fine food and wine.
Moscato @ Bohemian Rhapsody II
Majek Moscato Sweet White Wine begins a little flinty, leading to classic, perfume-like notes of rose and orange blossom. A taste yields flavors of ripe white peaches and a hint of honey, with a crisp citrus note. A popular summer standalone wine (or for times you wish it was summer!), also a delicious dessert wine with fruit and ice cream!
Cardinal’s Kiss @ Windows on Milam Emporium
Cardinal’s Kiss is a sweet, delicate blend of Texas Sangiovese and Black Spanish.
