Harvest Time in Texas

This weekend marks the beginning of the 2007 Harvest Wine Trail in the Texas Hill country. 22 wineries spread out across the hill country are offering up wine tastings, grape stomps and other fun events. It seems like Texas will get a break from the sweltering heat and the torrential rain so this might be an ideal way to pass the weekend.

Some of the more well-known Texas wineries taking part in the event inlcude Becker Vineyards, Driftwood Vineyards, Fall Creek Vineyards, Mandola Estate Winery and Spicewood Vineyards.

As the number 5 grape and wine producer in the U.S., Texas offers a large variety to choose from. Eight federally approved Viticultural Areas exist in Texas. You can find out more information online on Texas wines at Go Texan Wines.
