Charity Spotlight: Evans2 and Kidd's Kids
Evans² is the blending of not only wine but two men’s passions for grape growing and winemaking: Dusty Evans (Owner of Sprayberry Vineyards) and Jim Evans (Winemaker at Lost Oak Winery). For every bottle purchased, $5.00 goes back to the Wine Society of Texas Scholarship program, awarding scholarships to those interested continued education in Texas wine.
The Wine Society of Texas was founded in 1996 with the goal to promote the knowledge of Texas wine appreciation, Texas winemakers, and oenology and viticulture. The scholarship assists students or individuals pursuing wine and winery education, internship, field study, research work, grape growing, wine making and marketing in the state of Texas.
Decadently dark in color, Evans² does not disappoint. It is abundant with aromas of blackberries, ripe cherries, vanilla with just a hint of herb garden. The cherry and vanilla flavors are front and center accompanied by plum with silky tannins. Full bodied with a prolonged finish, this wine is truly a product of passion for all things wine.
Kidd Kraddick founded Kidd’s Kids in 1991 with a dream to make a difference in the lives of children and their families who were dealing with life-altering or life-threatening conditions. Since 1991, the charity has sent over 1000 kids and their families on a trip of a lifetime to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The goal has been to continue to grow that number each year. For every bottle purchased $5.00 will be donated to the Kidd’s Kids foundation.
With a color of light straw this blend starts off with a vibrant aroma of sweet flowers and melon. On the palate, melon gives way to more pear and crisp apple flavors. Tropical fruit flavors of star fruit green mango finish this wine off while bright acidity lingers, reminiscent of lemon zest.
