It is our intention to deliver our experience and share with all y’all accessible, entertaining and inspiring content about wine and the wine trails throughout the wine regions of Texas.

The sunny and dry climate of the major winemaking regions in the state have drawn comparison to southern Europe as in Spain or southern Italy. Texas is ranked as the fifth largest wine producing state in the U.S. and is continuing its steady pace of expansion within the wine world. Thanks to many of the founding vineyards who started planting vines just as California was stamping its footprint into the wine industry.

OUR HISTORY

The Texas wine industry began near the border of Mexico and New Mexico. Spanish missionaries established the first vineyard in North America in 1662. Here the state’s oldest winery still in operation is Val Verde, established in 1883. The modern Texas wine industry began again in 1976.
