Bingham Family Vineyards 2017 Dugout

The Wine

Our estate Dugout is a red wine Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. This oak aged wine is bold and complex like the frontier. 

The Story

The first of six generations of the family settled in the High Plains of Texas in the early 1900’s and lived in a dugout. Our estate Dugout is named after our family’s heritage of homesteading in the High Plains of Texas in the early 1900’s.
