Vineyards

In Spring 2014 we planted our estate vineyards with Tannat, Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Tinto Cão, and Arinto.  We also work with the following vineyards:

Texas Hill Country AVA

The largest viticultural area in the state and the second largest in the United States, comprised of 58 different soil associations distributed over an area of approximately 9 million acres. This area sits on the Edwards plateau with many hills and steep canyons. The elevation ranges from 425 to 2,400 feet with the areas of lowest elevation in the south and north east end of the region. The major soil texture types in the hill country AVA include clay loam, clay, and sandy clay loam. (Texas A & M)

High Plains AVA

The Texas High Plains is the second largest AVA in Texas and third largest in the U.S. with a total area of approximately 8 million acres. It rises above the Caprock Escarpment to an elevation between 3,000 to 4,000 feet, in west Texas. The lofty elevation combined with low annual precipitation creates a favorable climate with relatively cool night temperatures during fruit ripening. (Texas A & M)
