Day One Hundred and Eighty Nine: More Wine Please
Went to a new winery today and was pleasantly surprised at their selection and quality of wine. Those of you that know me, know that I visit wineries quite often. Having said that, I have never actually gone out and taken pictures of the vines. This is a Carlos Muscadine grape. These grapes are used in most of the sweet wines found in NC wineries.
At first I wasn’t too impressed with this shot until I started playing around in photoshop a bit. I dabbled in texture use and am somewhat impressed with how it turned out.
Big props to Kim Klassen for supplying me with this texture from her Canvas Texture set. It truly makes it look as if it is a canvas..
TrueBlood & Wine
Michelle and I always enjoy a bottle of red wine every Sunday while
watching our favorite HBO show, TrueBlood. This week we tried a NC muscadine
wine, Tar Heel Red from Hinnant Family Vineyards. Michelle works in lab for
Nomacorc, a company that makes synthetic wine corks and we like to try wine
from wineries that use Nomacorc’s corks.
Being a muscadine wine, it was pretty sweet and that’s just how I like it.
Michelle paired it with soft cheese, Brie, and crackers.
Stay tuned every Sunday for more wine reviews!
