History

HomeHistory

When discussing American wine, it’s inevitable that images of the majestic Pacific Northwest coast spring to mind.  Landscapes of rolling valley vineyards cradled in the lush embrace of a mountain range are synonymous with a glass of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.  This immediate association is certainly fair considering that California produces 90% of all wine in the United States though all 50 states in the union produce wine and grow grapes.  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.
