When you ask yourself where the grapes were grown in the wine that you are drinking, read the label to give you information. This video produced by High Plains Winegrowers has Bree Nelson explain to consumers how to read a wine label to see what percent of Texas grapes are in your wine. One way to tell is to look for “Texas High Plains” as the AVA (American Viticultural Area) on the label. That will let you know that at least 85% of the grapes in this bottle are grown in the High Plains of Texas.
If you want to make sure that 100% of the grapes in the bottle are Texas grown just buy Bingham Family Vineyards wines which proudly state on our label that they are 100% Texas grown.
So enjoy your wine, and enjoy knowing where the grapes were grown as you explore new wines and new varietal wines.
On the eve of the industry’s Texas Wine & Grape Growers Association Annual Conference – we’re eager to share this tid bit with you & the rest of the world.
Choosing Texas wine is a wonderful decision. Choosing a #TexasHighPlains grown wine is an intelligent one. #GenerationalFarmers #PremiumGrowingRegion
