TEXAS WINE COUNTRY REMAINS TOP DESTINATION

TEXAS WINE COUNTRY REMAINS TOP DESTINATION

Those of us who live in or near Texas Wine Country know first-hand that it’s a popular and always busy wine region. But it’s always nice to be recognized by others for being one of the top wine destinations in the country.
The Texas Hill Country was recently named the #3 Best Wine Region by USA Today’s 10Best contest.
USA Today’s 10Best contests rely on a panel of experts that partner with 10Best editors to pick the initial nominees, and then USA Today readers vote for the winners. So yes, it’s a bit of a popularity contest, but always glad to see Texas wine lovers show up and vote.

A CELEBRATION OF TEXAS WINE AND TEXAS CHEESE

Like Texas grape growers and wineries, Texas cheesemakers are passionate about the land, animals and milk that result in award-winning cheese that often reflect the season. That’s why Texas wines and Texas cheeses are such a great pairing.

Texas Fine Wine teamed up with Antonelli’s Cheese to create our first-ever cheese and wine pairing guide featuring four of our wines with four Texas cheeses. The guide also includes pro tips on how to pair cheeses with wines.

SNOW & ICE COVER TEXAS WINE COUNTRY

SNOW & ICE COVER TEXAS WINE COUNTRY

For many Texans, President’s Day was hardly a holiday. Most woke up that morning without power because of an unprecedented cold spell that plunged temperatures to single digits and brought snow and ice across the state, crippling the state’s electric grid for nearly a week. Days later, residents were hit with a one-two punch with water outages across many communities. By the weekend, temperatures started to rise, snow finally melted away, and everyone finally had a moment to breathe.

2020 HARVEST UPDATE

2020 HARVEST UPDATE

In a bit of a turn of events, the Texas Hill Country along with other parts of the state look to dominate this year’s wine harvest due to an unexpected fall freeze last October in the Texas High Plains, which caused significant damage for some large High Plains vineyards that historically provide the bulk of fruit for Texas wineries. As a result of the low yields and excellent vineyard management, however, the Texas High Plains vineyards are expected to deliver high-quality fruit.
