Took a 4th drive up to Huntsville to check out ole Sam Houston’s final resting place (in a cemetery smack in the middle of a housing development!) and a new vineyard there, Teysha Vineyard. The vineyard was a fun stop and we tasted a number of their wines and bought a bottle of the bourbon barrel aged red. The owner Mr. Zimmerman chatted with us a while and we were surprised that he’s not a wine drinker . Harvest is this weekend if they aren’t being deluged by a tropical system.
My penchant for South American food is known here, I think. For lunch we headed to Carbonero Rotisserie located at the end of a somewhat shabby shopping strip, anchored at the other end by a good Tex-Mex place I have described here before, Los Pericos. The specialty at Carbonero is their chicken, though the usual meats are on the menu. The chicken was tender and juicy and comes with a range of sides to choose from. They offer some cool looking bar drinks, but we did not try them this trip. I would definitely return to this eatery.
