Views of the Neighborhood – Gaucho Winery

This is the second post as a result of a day spent with my daughters. We visited two winery locations. This is the second winery visited.

El Gaucho Winery in Texas is a social location in Texas for wines made from grapes grown in Mendoza Argentina. The Texas location is meant to feature the Argentian wines and to provide a comfortable venue for gatherings. You can find out more about the winery here.

The main sign lets you know this is a piece of Argentina.

The winery is on top of a hill. This is the shot at the top.

Lovely flowers.

A welcome sign and view of the valley.

The menu. We tasted the Malbec Classico. It was delicious.

A few decks in the event area.

Outdoor kitchen featuring a wood-fired bread and pizza oven.

A look back toward the tasting room.

Kids play area, including teepees.

An observation and event deck. This winery had a party written all over it. I’m going to keep my eye open for events.

  8. Good morning, John,
    I like a Malbec very much, especially if it comes from Argentina and not from grapes grown here in Texas. My experience – I hope I can trust my palate and tongue there – is, that Malbecs from Argentina are a tad more dry than those from here. I seem to feel the same with other grapes, too.
    Have a great morning,
    Pit

    1. I think you are right about the dryness, Pit. I like Malbec very much as well.

      1. My thoughts about the dryness: Texas wines are (just) a tad sweeter than their equivalents from Europe [or, in the case of Malbec, from Argentina], and then Californian wines are (just) a tad sweeter again than their equivalents from Texas. As I usually prefer a dry wine, I try to get the European variety. Here in Texas, btw, I like the Becker Viineyard “Claret” a lot, and the Sister Creek Vineyards Cabernet blends.
