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.
