I’m All Ears about Texas Wines and I am Giving Away Prizes

Posted by VintageTexas, Jul 29, 2009.

Examples of comments I am looking for are:

What has been your experience with Texas wines? The good or bad?
Have you walked in a Texas vineyard, tasted ripe grapes right off the vine, or helped harvest?
What do you think about the up and coming Texas wine experience?
Can you find the Texas wines you like at your favorite wine shop?
Have you tried to direct ship from a Texas winery to your home?
How do you think Texas wines compare with those from other wine regions?

Tell me what you like or what you don’t.

As I said above, I am all ears! So, give me your comments and be eligible to win free prizes. Let’um rip!

I used to live in Lubbock, Texas. I enjoyed wines from the Llano Estacado Winery. I thought their Riesling and Gewurztraminer were both excellent. I thought they compared very favorably with any of those varieties, I have ever tasted. I have been to the winery but have never picked any grapes, etc. I do not have a favorite wine shop here in Ohio, I am forced to bring wine in via UPS. It has been awhile since I have had a bottle of their wine.

I was in El Paso in 2005 and visited two wineries on the border: Zin Valle and La Vina. Both wineries made nice whites and Very good Zin (ZV) and Primitivo (La Vina). The chardonnay at La Vina was killer.
