Vino Volo – our new airport favorite!

On our way home from golfing in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, we had a layover in Dallas VinoVolo_Logo_noTagWhiteairport, where we discovered Vino Volo.  This is a wine bar/restaurant that focuses on offering wines by the glass, and wine flights.  For a reasonable cost, you can sample 3 different wines according to particular flights that the company designs.  We had the following:

California Kings, a tasting consisting of

  • Branham Estate Wines 2012 Resolution Zinfandel
  • Tamas Estates 2012 Merlot
  • Crane Ridge Vineyards Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

Captivating Cabernets, consisting of

  • Michael Pozzan 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon
  • G. Reedy Wines 2011 Del Rio Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Mount Veeder Napa Valley 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

Vino Volo FlightIf you have to cool your heels in an airport, there are sure worst ways to pass the time!  It was a great way to try a few wines while waiting for the flight home to Toronto – they were all very nice wines, many of which can also be bought in Vino Volo’s wine store.  Have to admit, I slept all the way home :-).
