The tasting room is located inside The Pink Pistol
The Pink Pistol is located in Lindale, Texas and it’s country music star Miranda Lambert’s experiential shopping lifestyle boutique.
Inside The Pink Pistol is a tasting room for not only her signature wine line, Red 55 Winery, but also the newest addition of olive oils and balsamic vinegars.
“[In November 2019] we opened an olive and balsamic tasting room. It’s called Red 55 the Olive and Grape,” said Beverly Lambert, mother of Miranda Lambert. “This room’s about grapes so we loosely call it the Olive & Grape tasting room because it is actually a tasting bar for customers to come in and sample themselves.”
They offer four varietals of the olive oils and four varietals of the balsamic vinegars.
“I’m really excited about our flavors,” said Lambert. “I did a lot of research, spoke to a lot of people in the business and arrived at the varietals that I thought would work best in our store.”
Here are the different flavors:
Texas Arbequina Olive Oils
The House That Built Me: Texas Arbequina
Our original extra virgin olive oil is the purest and most delicious with a buttery and fruity flavor.
Hush Hush: Texas Garlic
This classic blend infuses cold-pressed olive oil with the savory flavor of fresh Texas-grown garlic.
Fire Escape: Texas Chili & Chipotle
Chipotle pepper and crushed red chili pepper combine to create this smoky and spicy olive oil.
A Kiss With A Twist: Texas Meyer Lemon
Infused with Texas-grown Meyer lemons, this olive oil is bright, aromatic, and tangy.
Balsamic Vinegars of Modena
Little Red Wagon: Modena 25 Star
Our exquisite and versatile red balsamic vinegar is aged in small barrels using traditional methods.
Bordertown Buzz: Jalapeño Lime
Our jalapeño lime white balsamic has a little heat with a citrus twist.
Famous In A Small Town: Blackberry
A nod to Lindale, Texas – Miranda’s hometown and the blackberry capital of the world – this white balsamic has the irresistible sweet and tart taste of fresh blackberries.
Sunday In The South: Pecan Praline
This vinegar is nutty and sweet with a warm taste and aroma of freshly-made pecan pralines.
The new olive oils and balsamic vinegars join over a dozen signature wine’s in Red 55 Winery.
“Because they are Red 55 products, we felt it necessary to include some version of Miranda’s lifestyle in the naming,” said Lambert. “All of our wines are named after a song, or something that’s important to her or something in her nature, so we did the same with the olives and balsamics.”
The tasting room is located inside The Pink Pistol located at 114 E. North Street in Lindale.
The Pink Pistol is open from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Fridays & Saturdays and 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sundays.
