Crump Valley Vineyards Announces
New "Blush" Added to their Line of Wines
by: Bobby McDonald
I stopped by and visited with Travis and Susan at Crump Valley Vineyards, on Monday, and they announced their new "blush" wine, that has been added to their line of fine wines, bottled here in Hopkins County. They received labeling approval on just Saturday, for their newest addition to the line, "Neon," that is described as a semi-sweet blush.
"We had a number of clients that had been fans of the 'Rouge' that we'd bottle back a few years ago, so we took that formula and improved on it, for an even better taste and appeal," advised winemaker, Susan Crump.
Yes, I got it right, Susan is now Mrs. Travis Crump, as they made a trip to Las Vegas, for New Years, and got married on January 2, 2013. "We went to the 'wedding chapel' but we didn't get married by an Elvis impersonator," advised Travis. "It was a beautiful ceremony, officiated by a real preacher, and much more traditional than some of those you hear about in Vegas!"
"I guess the new Neon is significant of our new life together," expressed Susan. "It's a blending of two wine grapes for a great taste!"
Susan advised that the new Neon is made from Texas grapes, a blend of Chenin Blanc, white grapes, from Llano Estacado Vineyards in the Texas Panhandle, near Lubbock and Littlefield, and a Norton, red grape, from Bob and Mary Jane Boyd's Merenge Vineyards, in nearby Wood County, at Rhonesboro. "The blend of the two grapes makes the Neon a perfect pairing for anything spicy!" expressed Travis and Susan. "It's great with Mexican food, Italian food, and even with Texas BBQ, or you can just drink it alone, as the perfect way to begin a meal!"
Everyone can get a taste of the New "Neon," at Saturday night's Lights of Life Gala, or can come by Crump Valley Vineyards for a tasting, in the tasting room.
Congratulations to Travis and Susan and their new Blush wine, Neon!!!
