Meet The Wine Maker Event At Trez Wine Bar

There are a number of places to go to in greater Houston. If you like wine and amazing vibes Trez Bistro and Wine Bar is one of the places that you should try. They have great wine events that they host alongside their wine Sommelier who is one of the 6 black men in Houston with the title. (don't quote me , but I believe they said 6)

During this event, we had the opportunity to meet and taste 4 wines from the winemaker and received a charcuterie board that their staff Wine Sommelier picked to pair with all wines. Now let's get into it.

The Wine Maker

At the event, we were delighted to meet South Africa's First Black Female Winemaker, Ntsiki Biyela, and experienced her award-winning delicious wines. In 2016, she established Aslina Wines, inspired by the strength and determination of the biggest influence in her life, her grandmother.

She gave us a beautiful story about how she was told that the name Aslina would not sell, but because she wanted to name the wine after grandmother she made sure to say the name will have to work because she wanted her wines to be named after her grandmother. Little did she know that not only would her wine sell, but she would also win awards for the same wines.

Wines that we loved

During this event, one of the wines that cause my attention was the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon

from South Africa. This Cabernet is a beautiful dark red wine with hints of mint and blackcurrant. This was a bold yet soft wine that goes well with a nice steak. But my favorite part , it's 14.5% ALC. What can I say, I like a bottle of strong wine.

If I can I try to support any and every black business, so I made sure to purchase a bottle to add to my cellar.
