In a state known for its cowboys, cotton fields, big oil and free roaming cattle, grape growing (or winegrowing) is frequently overlooked as a cornerstone of Texas agriculture and agricultural history. The budding Texas wine industry has grown wildly in the last two decades bringing the full number of Texas winery licenses to just over 400 statewide (and growing) and boasts over 5,000 acres of fruit bearing vines planted. These statistics have placed Texas as the 4th in the country for wine production, 7th for grape growing and 2nd for growth in wine tourism. As the wine industry continues to weave its way into the agricultural tapestry for which Texas is known, we support our grape growers with 100% or our fruit sourced from the Texas High Plains and Texas Hill Country AVA’s.
Produced and barrel aged at Slate Mill Wine Collective in Fredericksburg, TX, our wines are crafted and blended to be both approachable and food friendly. With a passion for quality juice and sustainable packaging our wines are kegged in Petainer kegs to reduce wine spoilage, glass and cork packaging waste and reduce our overall carbon footprint. The kegs are produced using 60% recycled materials and are recycled after use.
2019 Ghost Tracks
This blend of 45% Albarino, 45% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Fiano is named for the notorious San Antonio urban legend. The story tells of ghostly children that push vehicles stalled on the train tracks to safety. The blend of Albarino and Sauvignon blanc needed that small push of barrel aged Fiano to make a rounded and vibrant blend.
2019 Cable Cars
55% Roussanne & 45% Viognier blend harmoniously in this Rhone style blend. The 1968 World Fair forever changed the landscape of San Antonio’s Hemisfair Park with elegant cable cars gliding over the vibrant city landscape. Two cable cars still grace the park in remembrance of those exciting days in the worlds eye. These two varieties glide seamlessly together transporting the palate to a magical place.
2019 San Antonio Rosé
A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cinsaut, this stunning rosé represents the unique tapestry of history and modern innovation that makes San Antonio such a unique landscape. This wine is best paired with a breathtaking Texas sunset.
Riverwalk Red (NV)
There is nothing in the world quite like a Sunday stroll on the San Antonio Riverwalk. The soothing sounds of running water, comforting smells of surrounding cafes and palpably vibrant culture are reflected in this easy sipper blending 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
This underappreciated Mediterranean gem has found a hospitable home in the Texas terroir. Thriving in a warm climate while retaining a high natural acidity, the moderate tannins lend for a complex yet softly structured experience.
The seductive bouquet of violets and candied raspberry are tantalizing on this full bodied and lush wine. If your type is powerful and brooding, this is the wine match for you. Malbec, traditionally from Bordeaux, is the crown prince of the Southern Hemisphere but feels right at home the in hot day/cool night climate of the High Plains.
2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet is the undisputed king of Bordeaux and Napa Valley and remains one of the most widely respected varieties in the world. But we prefer our cab to have just a little bit of country AND a little bit of rock n’ roll. Loving the high elevation and extreme heat of the High Plains, this cabernet is as complicated as it is pretty.
