GO TEXAN Twitter Tasting Tuesday is Tonight

Can you walk and chew gum? Then you can drink Texas wine and tweet! I’ve participated in this monthly Twitter chat and while it’s a little hard to get a word in (difficult for me, anyway), I’ve always learned some unique facts about Texas wine. Tonight the Texas Department of Agriculture will announce a major new initiative designed to promote and support restaurants that offer Texas wines. Locapour? IJS.

Jump for directions.

During the Tweet-up, you can follow Jack on Twitter @jackallens and GO TEXAN @GOTEXAN.  Please use the hashtag #GOTEXAN.


  • Fall Creek Chardonnay
  • McPherson Cellars Rosé
  • Messina Hof Cabernet Franc

We hope you can pick up one or more of the wines above and participate in the Texas Twitter Tuesday with guests Elizabeth Hadley, TDA Assistant Commissioner for Marketing, and Jack Gilmore, owner and chef of Jack Allen’s Kitchen, who is one of the region’s most beloved and respected chefs.  Well known for his support of the “locavore” movement, Jack also offers his patrons many choices of Texas wines that pair well with his regional cuisine.
