As with all things Texan, the stories of Texas winemakers are big. For a state industry that’s really still in its infancy, Texas wines are making quite an impact. Not only in sheer number (there are more than 200) but also in dollars. The wine industry in Texas is literally a billion dollar industry with some sources quoting statistics that show our state is the second most popular wine destination in the country behind Napa/Sonoma.
Now, there’s a new book that takes you inside some of our state’s grape growing, wine stompin’ spots.
Page after page, Spectacular Wineries of Texas is a vibrant, high-end collection that makes for an interesting read as well as a go-to coffee table delight. This 208-page book is just like having your very own private tour of nearly 50 Texas wineries! It’s well researched and informative.
The collection of Lone Star wine lore is organized geographically- Central, Southwest, Western, and Northern- and includes fascinating insights from owners, winemakers, and vintners–renowned producers with familiar labels, special boutique wineries, as well as first-vintage establishments.
Spectacular Wineries of Texas from Signature Publishing Group is an excellent guide, whether you’re an expert on Texas wine or just the casual connoisseur and will become available at bookstores everywhere in September.
