Texas Fine Wine, a group of four exceptional wineries that organized in 2014 to promote its wines and wineries collectively, is celebrating its 10th anniversary in style! Texas Fine Wine will host the second annual Retrospective and Perspective tasting on Saturday, Feb. 3 at Spicewood Vineyards.
For the past 10 years, the Texas Fine Wine wineries have been committed to growing and sourcing the best fruit in the state, experimenting with new grapes and vineyard and winemaking techniques, and making exceptional wines that express Texas’ terroir.
“We are proud to have played a role in establishing Texas as a respected wine region known for its diversification, sophistication and caliber of wines,” said Julie Kuhlken, co-founder and CEO of Pedernales Cellars. “Our Retrospective and Perspective tasting is our premier event to showcase the ageability, history and quality of our wines.”
During this special event, winemakers and owners from Bending Branch Winery, Duchman Family Winery, Spicewood Vineyards and Pedernales Cellars will each showcase a library wine, current release and barrel sample. This educational tasting will explore different vintages, varieties, vineyard practices and winemaking techniques that showcase the wide diversity of styles and expressions of Texas wine.
Over the course of 2024, Texas Fine Wine will feature new videos for Texas Fine Wine and each winery, host its annual sunset cruise and Texas Wine Month dinner, participate in wine events and dinners across the state, and share historical moments that have shaped the Texas wine industry.
For example, as reported by Wes Marshall in the Austin Chronicle in March 2014: “Four wineries* that have all won big awards on the national and international stages have banded together as Texas Fine Wine. This could be so much marketing gobbledygook were it not for the serious quality of the wineries involved. If you take a look at my list of Texas’ 10 best wines of 2013, you’ll find these four wineries accounted for half of the winners, an amazing result.”
