Wine - and Education?
April 9, 2018
While talking to a florist friend who was helping me make cotton boll wreaths for a local wine festival auction, we were discussing the fact that proceeds from these wreaths and the wine that many of the participating wineries had donated would be used to support college scholarships for several students in the area. “What an interesting combination”, I said, "wine and education". "These two things don't seem to naturally complement each other." My florist friend responded that she grew up on a local farm and as it turns out, her mother was sent to college partly on the cash that my friend’s grandmother raised by selling mustang grape wine and whiskey! So I guess wine and education have been linked together for a long time in central Texas – our wineries are just continuing that trend!
