I have a tradition of enjoying really good bottles of wine when watching really high stress Dallas sporting events. Throughout the Maverick’s run to wine the NBA Championship bottles of 2003 Miner Oracle, 2006 Rancho Del Oso Cabernet from Ed Sbragia, 2008 Ancien Chardonnay, 2007 Rocca Grigsby Vineyard Syrah….and, the Mav’s won. Did sipping good wine help the win happen? I think so.
So, if you are looking for a great bottle to enjoy tonight to will the Ranger’s to win try one of these out. A few selections have been sent for editorial consideration.

Last evening, the Texas winners of the recent American Cheese Society Competition 2011 displayed their award-winning cheeses at Celebration Restaurant. What a great turnout! The room was SRO with cheese lovers. It was so crowded I could barely get around the space to sample all of the cheeses and during my attempt to do so, I dropped my camera and the last hundred I shot are out of focus. However, I was thrilled to taste Pure Luck Farm and Dairy’s Hopelessly Blue goat cheese, Mozzarella Company’s Hoja Santa goat cheese, and Brazos Valley’s creamy cheddar. All of the cheesemakers and cheeses in attendance are listed below, along with the photos I salvaged. These people work their butts off to produce some fine cheese. Buy it. In quantities. Go Texas cheese! (And Rangers!)
Jump for the glorious cheeses.
