Texas Wineries

Texas is very well-known for its production of oil, cattle and braggarts. And also its wine.

Its wine? Yep, Texas has a thriving and growing wine industry. As of this writing there are more than 200 vineyards in Texas, and close to 60 wineries and tasting rooms. In fact, Texas is the fifth-largest wine producing state in the U.S.

Those Texas wineries have produced wines of all types - Sangiovese, Viognier, Tempranillo and Syrah; Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Muscat Canelli, Sauvignon Blanc, Fume Blanc and Ruby Cabernet; Gewurztraminer, Red Kristkindl, Pinot Noir, Johannisberg Riesling; and many, many more varieties - and have won national and internation awards and acclaim.

For example, in November, 2002, the Wine Society of Texas and the Culinary Institute Alain & Marie LeNotre held a "Texas-French Wine Shootout." In blind taste tests, a selection of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot-based wines from Texas and Bordeaux, France, went head to head.

In five of the six categories, the winners were Texas wines.

The history of winemaking in Texas goes back hundreds of years, and the state's vineyards and wineries continue growing in product and reputation. In 1982, Texas' annual wine production was 50,000 gallons; within four years, that had grown to around 700,000. Production now is well over 1,000,000 gallons per year.

While a majority of the state's vineyards are in the Lubbock and West Texas areas, the majority of the state's wineries are located in the Hill Country and Grapevine/North Texas areas.

You can find information on the state's wineries on the following pages. Browse the full list of wineries or choose a region of the state. You'll find contact info and, in most cases, descriptions of the winery's products and hours for tours and tastings. You may also find a greeting from the winery owners.

If you haven't tried Texas wines, it's about time you did.
