June Rodil Talks Texan Wine

june-rodil-150.jpgJune Rodil, Beverage Director for David Bull's restaurants in the Austonian, on Texan wines: "Texas is hot, so it makes sense that we're using grapes that are Mediterranean in climate where it's just going to be warmer. Tempranillo is working well, Italian varietals, Montepulciano, Vermentino - and granted these aren't notable names for a novice wine drinker, but for the most part, I think 97% of wines produced in Texas are consumed in Texas, so it's state pride that allows people to give it a try anyway."
