Travel Blogger Kathy Petrino Loves To Be At Texas Wine Country

September 19, 2019

It is crystal clear that Kathy Petrino is an enthusiastic traveler, but there is more to her than simply traveling everywhere. Besides her strong desire to see as much of the world as possible before she is finished, Kathy thankfully loves to write about everything she sees and she also loves to post it all on her travel blog for everyone to see. Kathy loves to share everything and her fondest desire is to make it possible for everyone to have the same great experiences she has had. Just as importantly, she wants others who travel to the same places she has to miss as many of the pitfalls as possible. That includes one of her favorite trips, to Texas Wine Country.

Kathy Petrino is well aware that, when people think of wine, they don’t usually consider Texas to be at the top of their list of wine destinations in the United States and the world, but the Lone Star State has been doing quite a bit to improve its reputation. The Hill Country of the state is suddenly growing some of the best grapes in the country and dozens of wineries are producing some of the best varietals outside of the West Coast in the United States.

Kathy Petrino wants you to travel along the Wine Road 290, where you will find a wide range of wines available, including many Malbecs, Cabernets and Tempranillos. Best of all, there are hundreds of state-of-the-art tasting rooms in which to enjoy them. As is usually the case in Texas, where are also a great many big music and wine events all over Hill Country. Some of them combine great Texas barbecue brisket with country and rockabilly music to lift your spirits. Two of the best events are the Dripping Springs Wine and Food Festival and the Kerrville Folk Festival.
