After a miserable peach season in 1996, the Gillespie County Peach Growers Association reports that the crop looks mighty good this year. In addition to the association's big barn at Burg's Corners on 290W outside Stonewall, there are roadside stands all along Hwy 290W, Hwy 16, and Hwy 87 selling peaches and other local produce. A tasty highlight to a peach expedition this weekend could be a stop at Becker Vineyards, on Jenscheke Lane off 290W. Saturday, 10am-5pm, and Sunday, noon-5pm, Becker debuts its 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon paired with delectable, handmade chevre from Pure Luck Farm in Dripping Springs.

Raise a glass of wine to general manager Len White the next time you visit Xena (10201 Jollyville Rd, 345-9944). The charming, cheerful young wine expert successfully completed the course of study to be certified as a Sommelier, joining a very small group of people locally who have that distinction. White hopes to add the Master Sommelier Diploma to his resumé before year's end. ¡Salud, Prost, Skol, L'chaim!
