I can’t wait to try the new wines at such an awesome winery! The winemaker, the family, are so caring and work very hard, which is reflected in their wines. I highly recommend you make a visit to the winery and experience some of the best wine you will ever drink. And, I live in Atlanta, GA, and love, love their wines! Sally Cook

Glad Tanji could make it out to highlight this winery, it was a favorite of mine since before the first visit, when I met owner Bob Young on a bus growing to dinner at last year’s TWGGA (Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association) meeting and heard him talk about his vineyard/winery.

Definitely good see that Bending Branch Vineyards is getting some additional publicity. I’ve had a good experience at winery, walking in the vineyard, and enjoyed their “new” take on what grapes to grow in Texas.
