Favourite grape or wine region? 

Favourite grape? Syrah. Favourite region? Beaujolais.

Are you a dog or cat person? Or maybe neither. Maybe you have birds or turtles or an ant farm?

I’m a dog person- ask to see pictures of my bulldog, Mack!

If you weren’t selling wine at Bishop’s Cellar, what would you be doing?

It’s hard to say but probably something related to food; I love the idea of working in a test kitchen.

Ryan Almeida's Picks

End of Summer Picks

Made from 100% Blue Weber Agave, sourced from both the Highlands of Jalisco and Lowlands of Tequila, Siempre (meaning always) makes a distinct range of Tequila but their Plata (or Blanco) is their purest expression of the spirit.  Notes of citrus, pepper spice, herbs, and sea salt are present on the nose and the palate; this one’s certainly made for sipping. With that being said, this would make an awesome Margarita or the unofficial cocktail of Texas: Ranch Water.

Ranch Water Cocktail Recipe

  • 1 1/2 oz of Siempre Plata
  • 1/2 oz of lime juice
  • Sparkling mineral water of choice (the spicier the bubbles, the better)
  • Garnish: lime wedge

Add the tequila and the lime juice to a tom collins glass (or any tall, skinny glass), fill it with ice, and top with sparkling water; garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!
