Vin de Texas

Although it surprises many people, Texas is the 5thleading state in the U.S. in wine production. The state boasts more than 350 wineries and has some 4,000 acres of vineyards. In landmass, Texas is bigger than France, although all of the vineyards in the state could easily fit into the confines of the small French appellation of Sancerre. There are three broad grape-growing regions—Texas Hill Country, in the center of the state; High Plains, on the Texas Panhandle; and Trans-Pecos, a large winegrowing area in the southwest bordering Mexico. The leading grapes are cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc, but the state is quickly becoming known for tempranillo. Want to see what Texas wine Karen will be serving this 4th of July?
