Favorite Wine: Black/White Spanish
My family first went to Dry Comal Creek Vineyards this past week. It is close to Canyon Lake, where we spend Christmas to New Year every year. It is a bit remote, not really close to New Braunfels or Canyon Lake, so takes some determination to get there. The winery is named for the "dry Comal Creek" bed behind the tasting room. The facilites are adequate to nice, with extremely friendly and professional staff in the tasting room. There were, as I recall, about 13 wines represented, from dry reds to sweet whites to a couple varieties of sparkling wines and Ports. All were drinkable, some more than others. The most popular, and my favorite, was the "Whilte/Black," a sort of Rose blend with a very nice fruity flavor without being too sweet. They had several wines on sale, including a "mistake wine," with "Bastardo" in the title, which for my taste was not very good. The "foot-pressed" reds were fruity (and had nothing to do with being actually "foot-pressed"). They are marketed as good wines for Sangria and mulled, spiced wines. The wine maker's favorite wine was a Petite Verdot, which I unfortunately I did not get to try. The sparkling wines (two of them, as I recall) were rather good and made there at the winery (their Rose sparkling was particularly good). I am a Port lover, but found both their white port and their Ruby Port to be a little bitter as well as expensive. Most of their wines are made, as I understand, from the Black Spanish grape varietal, which tolerates Central Texas heat, cold, draught, and flooding, as well as being resistant to several types of diseases, including Pierce's. The beauty of the Black Spanish is is hardiness, but it also limits Dry Comal Creek to certain types of wines.

We have visited this winery several times and really like their whites and reds both. Very friendly.
