New tasting room

(Continued)

The tasting room itself will be run by Kim Hernandez and will feature wines from Sweet Springs and Lost Oak Wineries. The couple will have a number of cheeses as well from Eagle Mountain Cheeses in Granbury which uses grass fed cows for their all natural milk in their cheese. Artisan breads and crackers will also be available.

The tasting room is also planning some fun activities this fall including a grape stomp, which only come naturally as a large, framed portrait of the “I Love Lucy” grape stomping episode is displayed inside the couple’s offices. Cindy said she’d like to get kids involved with the grape stomping, as well.

“We’re going to find out what people like and have some live entertainment at the room, including jazz blues and some Tejano music as well,” Ronnie said.”We’re going to be doing some car shows, some bike shows there, as well.”

“We simply want to make it a comfortable place, not real formal, where people can have a glass of wine, some cheese and bread and just relax,” Cindy said. “We’ll have some nice acoustic music and be able to have a conversation with someone.”

The couple is getting its name out there in other ways, working with the local Albertsons to get their wines on display there and at Twisted Snifter. Anticipation of the tasting room is growing as the couple has already had more than 340 hits on the business Facebook page.

The tasting room is expected to be just the beginning for the couple. Over the next 18 months, a wedding venue will be constructed on the couple’s property. A brewhouse is also expected in the near future off Highway 51 to pay homage to Ronnie’s German roots.

The tasting room will be open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. Sundays.
