2020 Reserve Teroldego, $49
Bingham Family Vineyards Estate Reserve Teroldego is oaked longer to create a smoother, more complex full-bodied wine. This is the first vintage year for Bingham to grow and vent Teroldego. Pairs well with bacon wrapped beef filet or beef bourguignon.

2020 Reserve Cabernet Franc, $49
The Bingham Family Vineyards 2020 Reserve Cabernet Franc was a small batch lot that was aged in new American and French oak barrels for 24 months. Only 6 barrels of 2020 Reserve Cab Franc were produced. The wine was made in a traditional French fashion with no tannin additives or other flavor “enhancers”. The wine was simply fermented on its skins for 7 days and then gently pressed into barrels and aged for two years. This is a wine you can keep in the cellar for 5-6years and it will continue to evolve and grow more complex.

2020 Reserve Petit Verdot, $49
The Bingham Family Vineyards 2020 Reserve Petit Verdot’s aromas billow out of the glass as blackberry and boysenberry with a subtle hint of anise. Lifting these fruit sensations is a smoky tar aroma that is like a bassline in a favorite song. Pairs well with reverse sear tomahawk rib eye steak or chili rellenos.

2019 Dirt Farmer, $32
The French call it terroir. In Texas we call it dirt. Nurturing the soil, the farmer encourages healthy vines, producing fruit which becomes wonderful wine. Tempranillo, Dolcetto, Mourvèdre, Graciano, and Teroldego are blended to create this bold and adventurous dry red wine which pairs well with smoky barbeque and Texas chili.

2021 Vermentino, $27
An exotic cold yeast strain known for fruit wine production was used on this Vermentino. The results were amazing, and this will be our new winemaking protocol for Bingham Vermentino moving forward. Fermented at cold temps in stainless steel tanks. Tropical notes of pineapple, citrus, green apple, and finger limes stand out on the nose. Lots of minerality, salinity and bright refreshing acidity round this wine off. Bingham Vermentino pairs well with oven roasted sea bass with ginger and lime sauce or pesto crusted salmon.

Money raised from tickets sales and the wine pull will go to the Wine and Food Foundation and their philanthropic projects.
