Kathy Rudolph Petrino is an enthusiastic travel blogger; in fact, that’s something of an unders-tatement. She certainly has a strong desire to see as much of the world as possible before she is finished, but Kathy also loves to post everything on her travel blog for everyone to see. Kathy Rudolph Petrino does so because that’s how you keep travel destinations afloat and appealing to visit again and again. That includes one of Kathy Rudolph Petrino’s favorite destinations anywhere, Texas Wine Country.

When people think about a vacation centered on wine growing and wine tasting, Kathy Rudolph Petrino is well aware that Texas isn’t usually at the top of their list. However, the Lone Star State has been doing a lot to improve its reputation as a wine producer, and many of their wineries are now considered among the best in the world. Texas Hill Country has been growing some of the best grapes in the country and, as a result, dozens of Texas wineries are producing some of the best varietals in the countries outside of the Napa Valley. When one travels along Wine Road 290, they will discover hundreds of state-of-the-art tasting rooms in which to enjoy the finest wines available for a thousand miles.Texas Wine Country also features big music and wine events, including some that combine great Texas barbecue brisket with country and rockabilly. And wine.
