May is here and we are the perfect destination for you! and of course this Texas wea.
I hope we get to see those beautiful May flowers soon!
This month we would like to highlight our Red Mangrove (Raspberry Wine). This is one of our delicious gems that we have! Such a nice smooth, sweet and refreshing raspberry flavor that will leave you smiling from ear to ear. You can not go wrong with a glass of our Red Mangrove.
Interesting fact is the naming of this one particular wine we produce. For those of you who do not know of the red mangrove, it is a Tropical salt-tolerant tree or shrub. There are more than 50 species world wide, 4 of which are found in the United States. They have remarkable aboveground roots that transport air to the root below. They are incredibly important to the ecosystem. The submerged roots provide a nursery habitat to fish and crustaceans. One interestingly fun fact is Red Mangroves can be called “Walking Trees” because of their continuously growing prop roots make them look like the are walking on water.
