Our Journey...

Texas Wine Revolution

One of our wine makers, Daniel Bingham, and Steven Krueger had a wonderful time at the first Texas Wine Revolution wine festival. It is amazing how far Texas wine has come in the last ten years. But it is time for a celebration. With twenty-six wineries getting together to share our 100% Texas grown Rosé wines with the world, you can imagine the excitement. We look forward to the next Texas Wine Revolution Festival. Here is a great video that Greg Fulks at Fulks Vision made at the event! read more…

Texas organic cotton farmers to receive Organic Leadership Award | OTA

Thanks to a pioneering group of forward-thinking farmers, organic cotton production in Texas has expanded from virtually nothing in the early 1990s to over 20,000 acres in 2015, making the Texas High Plains the largest organic cotton-growing region in the United States.   In recognition of the group’s hard work and organic vision, the farmers of the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative (TOCMC) have been selected to receive the prestigious “Organic Farmer of the Year” Leadership Award from the Organic Trade Association (OTA) in ceremonies in September.

2016 San Francisco Wine Competition ~ Bingham Winners

Bingham Family Vineyards award winning wines

We are so excited about the awards that our wines have won in 2016. Now we have more from the 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition. We sent four wines, and they all came home with medals.

Bingham Family Vineyards 2014 Dirt Farmer

Dirt Farmer

Tempranillo, Merlot, Dolcetto, and Cabernet Sauvignon are blended to creat flavors of blackberry and dried figs as bold and adventurous as the Texas High Plains

The Story

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.

Awards

Silver medal, 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition

2014 Cloudburst Bingham Family Vineyards

This white wine is a smooth blend of Trebbiano, Vermentino, Roussanne, Viognier, and Chardonnay with a medium body ending with a hint of apple. A six time award winner.

The Story

The High Plains has a very dry climate, but when rain comes it very often comes quickly and yet in a very refreshing way.

National Rosé Day with Bingham High Plains Sunset

It’s here today: National Rosé Day! You can celebrate the day with our 2014 High Plains Sunset Rosé!

Our dry rosé is made from Mourvèdre grapes grown in our vineyard on the High Plains of Texas. It has a distinct flavor of strawberry and a pleasant dark cherry aroma.

The story behind the name is that the wonderful color of the wine reminds us of the gorgeous sunsets we see on the flat terrain and clear skies on the High Plains.

You can buy it today at our Grapevine tasting room or in Lubbock at Market Street, Quaker and 19th. If they don’t carry our wines or our dry rose at your local Market Street or HEB, then kindly let the wine manager there know that you would like to be able to buy it there.
