Our vineyard, winery, and farm crew got together last night for a mid-harvest celebration. Most of our full time crew was able to come with their families to celebrate. Grape harvest and peanut harvest are over. Cotton harvest is still to come. Looks like there will be a freeze this weekend to help get the cotton plants ready to harvest the cotton fiber.
We didn’t know it at the time, but we should have also been celebrating our awards that we won at the 2017 San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Wine Competition! Our 2015 Viognier won a gold and our 2014 Dolcetto won best in class. Our 2014 Dirt Farmer won a silver medal while our 2014 Cabernet Franc, 2015 Trebbiano, 2014 Chardonnay, and Short Rows won bronze. We won seven awards in all which is quite a few for a Texas winery.
Big thanks to our whole crew who make it possible for us to make our 100% estate grown, produced, and bottled wines. These are the people who work in the fields to bring you not only our award winning wines but provide grapes to over 25 other wineries around the state of Texas so that they can make even more great wines for you to enjoy.
