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.
Texas Fine Wine is excited to announce a special Texas Fine Wine bundle for the national #OpenLocalWine celebration on Saturday, April 10. We will host a Texas Fine Wine Talk and Taste from 6-7 p.m. that night to talk about the wines in the bundle, which include:
The Texas Fine Wine group of wineries continues to bring home top honors from prestigious wine competitions, including the 2021 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition that evaluated 5,700 wines from over 1,000 wineries.
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.
Texas Fine Wine invites our friends and wine enthusiasts to join us for a monthly virtual Texas Fine Wine Talk and Taste! Given the pandemic precludes us from hosting in-person tasting events, we are going to host monthly virtual tastings and conversations about various wine topics and new releases. These will be casual and fun and a chance for us to “see you” and catch up on wine news.
Brennan Vineyards owners Pat and Trellise Brennan are transitioning into retirement and will be handing the reins of the day-to-day operations over to the team at the Texas Wine Collective. This change brings a renewed commitment to producing fine wines, but will not include continued membership in the Texas Fine Wine Group.
Texas Fine Wine 2021 Outlook: Run, don’t walk, for 2017 Texas reds. Look for more single-vineyard wines. Fizz and more fizz. Online sales will keep growing. People want to meet the people behind the brand. More barrel-aged whites.
Texas Fine Wine group of wineries announces its top honors from recent wine competitions, with many accolades given to the red wines just being released from the 2017 vintage, arguably the best vintage in Texas wine history.

It’s time to get out of town and visit some wineries over the long weekend. People have called recently looking for recommended road trips – check out our website for some itineraries. In case you haven’t visited in a while, here’s what you’ve been missing! Hope to see you this weekend!
We miss you! Unfortunately, our winery tasting rooms remain closed, but we are still busy with guests picking up wines, wine deliveries, virtual events, and of course, harvest! Wine production and harvest does not slow down despite the pandemic, and so far, this year’s fruit looks fabulous.
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.
While wineries are closed again, you can still order wines for pick-up or have them shipped to you. Support your local wineries and stock up for the holiday weekend. Pedernales Cellars is offering specials on its Vermentino and Tempranillo. Six...
