How Texas Is Texas Wine?
What “Truth in Labeling” means for Texas winemakers and vineyards
Food Story  April 27, 2017, by Veronica Meewes
"..."Many times we're looking for something to enhance the color or character of a wine, so we turn to deep-colored varietals like Malbec, Petite Sirah, or Petit Verdot," says Whitehead.

Mead in the Heart of Texas
Meridian Hive produces one honey of a drink
Food Story  October 9, 2014, by Wayne Alan Brenner

And the Melissa" – he points to one of the tall bottles on the table – "is what's known as a pyment, which is made from grapes and honey – specifically, in this case, cotton blossom honey, petite sirah, and pinot noir in combination."..."

Homefront Red: grapes for a good cause

Fion Wine Pub & Bistro
Those living near Steiner Ranch have a treasure in their back yard
Food Review  February 27, 2009, by Wes Marshall
"...The bar and late-night menu is high-end pub grub with an extra dash of creativity and offers items such as a cast-iron-skillet-seared 12-ounce skirt steak on crisp bread with caramelized onions and house fries ($11.95) or fresh Texas jalapeños stuffed with pork, chorizo, and queso served with seasonal grilled fruit ($6.95). The bargain on this list is the roasted lamb sliders, topped with mint pesto and served with house-made fries ($6.95), which were three slider-size lamburgers, juicy and full of lamb flavors and a superb match with a Consilience Petite Sirah ($29.95)...."
