Friday Weird Wine blogging

When St. Paul said "no longer drink only water, but take a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments" (1 Timothy 5:23), I'm not sure he foresaw the Jalapeno Wine above distilled in our own local Texas winery, Circle S. (Doesn't that sound more like a ranch than a winery???)

It is good for marinating fish and chicken before grilling. I actually drank some of it and it has a nice jalapeno flavor without burning your tongue.

Where in the world do you buy this wine??? [reverendmother tells me we reside in about the same parts]
It sounds kinda nutty, even for Texas!

I'm down with it as long as you don't try to serve it at communion.

You can buy the wine at Circle S Vineyards in Sugar Land (suburb of Houston). Oddly enough--it isn't widely distributed! They did win a medal for it at some international wine competition.

Purechristianithink--you're giving me an idea. If I could persuade them to make a red version, that would jazz up our first Sundays!

What an odd idea.

The communion suggestion made me laugh... It would cause a bit of a stir.

No worse than the combination of Moxie and Cheez-its an interim minister once suggested to my Deacons. Woof.

Quotidian Grace said...

Well, we haven't used Cheez-its yet, but we have used cut up tortillas in a pinch.

Songbird said...

Tortillas aren't that far off from pita bread or matzoh, at least. :-)

Mmmm... Texas wine.

I'm hankerin' for a little right about now.
