Houston Wine Almanac: a new blog devoted to our city’s vibrant wine scene

From the department of “as if I didn’t already have enough to blog about”…

Above: Pascal Prunier-Bonheur Coteaux Bourguignon Le P’tit Bonheur by the glass last night at Brennan’s in Houston, one of the city’s top wine destinations. Note the vintage. Utterly delicious.

Week before last, Brennan’s affable wine director Marcus Gausepohl lamented the fact that Houston lacks a blog devoted to its wine community.

With the shuttering of the Houston Press weekly rag in November last year and the scant however noble ink devoted by the Houston Chronicle to sports writer Dale Robertson’s Herculean wine coverage in America’s fourth largest metropolis, the city needs imho a wider-reaching portal devoted to its wine scene.

And so today, I launched Houston Wine Almanac.

Its mission is to provide regularly updated coverage of the Houston wine scene. It’s intended as an editorial-free space where all community members are invited and encouraged to share information and news.

Publicists, please send me any and all press releases you care to share.

Sommeliers, please feel free to dispatch any info you’d like to disgorge.

Bloggers, please shoot me your link in case I haven’t already added you to the Houston wine resources widget.

And just to get the party started on the right note, here’s an awesome song, below, written and performed by Pappas Bros. Steakhouse sommelier Steven McDonald.

Until today, it lived only through a link on his Facebook. Today, it belongs to the world!

  1. Congrats! I’m trying to do the same thing for Orlando on Orlando Wine Blog. And this is especially helpful to me, as I’ll be in Houston for work next week – I’ll definitely check out your recommendations!
