Grape Experience in San Antonio.
WTR's Winnie Winesnob reports that Texas currently has over 275 bonded commercial wineries and ranks fifth in the United States of America in wine production. Texas is the site of the first vineyard established in North America by Franciscan priests circa 1662.
As European settlers followed the development of mission outposts, they brought more grapevine cuttings, further developing the industry through the 1800s. Most of the noble varieties are grown here. Today Texas boasts approximately 3,700 acres of producing vineyard farmland.

Lagniappe for San Antonio.
WTR's Ernie Exhibit provides information on special current exhibitions for our featured museums such as: McNay Art Museum
Now through September 2, 2018 see: Immersed Local to Global Art Sensations
Immersive, environmental installations by Yayoi Kusama and Philip Worthington, a film by Andy Warhol, and a new commission by San Antonio’s Chris Sauter transform the McNay’s Tobin Exhibition Galleries.
Internationally celebrated Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity (2009), cover image, immerses the viewer in an enclosed, mirrored, seemingly infinite space. A constellation of lights brightens into the expanse, only to slowly fade back into darkness so that the cycle can begin again. The work asks viewers to think about not just placement in local or global settings, but in the entire universe. Kusama’s vision of a better society through creativity, and dedication to creating objects and environments that unite and heal, is itself a mirror to San Antonio as the city reflects on its 300-year history.
