I recently spent an afternoon with Chris Benziger touring his family’s beautiful vineyards. The Benzigers are not only farming their grapes organically but also biodynamically.
In my ongoing adventure of exploring wonderful food and new wines, I see a common thread in Texas. More and more restaurants are sourcing locally produced products…often organic. The result is usually better tasting food.
There’s an interesting religious farming community just outside of Waco that’s becoming known for its artisan cheeses and grains. A number of your best restaurants in Houston, San Antonio and Dallas serve their products.
