Ho, Ho, Holiday Season Greetings from Huston Vineyards
As we finish 2017, we find it easy to reflect with gratitude on the year. We’ve truly enjoyed sharing our wine and our mission of Great Wine! Great Food! Great Friends! The Best of Times with you!
The year started when the snow finally cleared a bit with our Wine & Chocolate Weekend and Smore’s Party in February. Then, we celebrated Spring with World Malbec Day in April and a Mother’s Day Brunch in May.
In August, we helped our neighbors in Houston, Texas by hosting a Huston Helping Houston fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey victims. We raised over $1000, thanks to our generous neighbors and friends.
We finished our November with a spotlight on future vintages at our Thanksgiving Barrel Tasting Weekend!
Thank you for sharing your year with us and for supporting a local, small business and farm family!

We had several requests for our Jalapeno Corn Chowder Recipe from Barrel Tasting Weekend. We adapted a recipe from www.geniuskitchen.com. This might be the perfect Christmas Eve Soup recipe served with Chicken Dinner Rosé.
- 3 cups frozen whole kernel corn
- 1 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup whole cream
- 1-2 jalapeno peppers, diced
- 1/2 cup roasted red pepper
- 1/2 onion, diced
- sour cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roast corn, jalapenos, and onion for approximately 15 minutes. Remove and cool.
In a food processor combine half the roasted vegetables, add the roasted red peppers and chicken broth and blend. Add to saucepan with remaining vegetables. Add whole cream and heat through. Finish with a little sour cream and serve with a glass of Chicken Dinner Rosé. Cheers!
