Palate Press and David Furer have an interesting article on Tempranillo grapes. Bingham Family Vineyards & Farm has 30 acres of Tempranillo.
20 acres are in full production and 10 more are in 3rd leaf for the 2013 harvest. We sell Tempranillo grapes to Landon Winery, Becker Vineyards, Tara Vineyard and Winery, Hilmy Cellars, Pedernales Cellars, Lost Oak Winery, and Messina Hof. Some are sold to smaller wineries also. You can check the tab at the top of the page that says “Grapes to Wines” to see other wineries that we sell other grapes to and find a link to their websites.
As Cliff is quoted in the article, Tempranillo is an interesting grape that wineries will request at different crop loads depending on what kind of wine they want to make it into. All are good, just different in style and for different occasions.
That’s our job, to please the winery and consequently to please the Texas Wine drinker.
