BENDING BRANCH WINERY

A boutique winery near Comfort, Bending Branch Winery is known for intense wines – from the high acidity in Picpoul Blanc to the bold tannins in its Tannat. The winery uses innovative winemaking processes such as Cryo-Maceration and Thermoflash (the only unit in Texas) to improve color, structure, and the taste of Texas red wines.

 Bending Branch Winery just won its second coveted saddle in 2018. This one for Top Texas Winery from this year’s Houston Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition.

Robert W. Young, MD, is the owner-winemaker at Bending Branch Winery who completed the Winemaker Certification Program at the University of California-Davis. Bob’s philosophy combines the old school art of winemaking with the latest science and technology to make what he calls “Next World Wines.”
