Welcome to Houston Uncorked!

While I do love a good grape, I am by no means a connoisseur. Not yet anyway. I realized that there was no place I could find online that really catered to someone like me… an amateur just trying to find her way through the vines. This blog will be a resource for anyone like me who is looking for information and opinions about all things wine and vine related. Although I am in Houston and will be giving my two cents about local wine spots, there will be good information on here for anyone who loves wine the way that I do. Thank you for stopping by and please leave me your comments so I can make this “winesite” a go to place for anyone with a thirst as voracious as mine!

Happy Toasting!

    Hey Mandee,

    Kim mentioned your website/blog. Sounds fun! I own Cork Cafe Wine & Coffee out in Cypress and we are trying to coordinate something with Pretty Pink Limos to get them off to a great start! I just wanted to drop a line and let you know that I checked it out! Good luck and let me know if you ever make it out this direction!

  5. Hi Mandee, just stumbled across your blog which I find very interesting. We need more wine drinkers voices on the net as a balance to the experts. I’ll drop bye in the future.

      Yes! Sorry the little one has been keeping me busy! Can we schedule for some time after Easter? Can my husband come with me maybe on a Saturday? Let me know what works best for you! Thanks so much!
