The Texas Hill Country is named one of the “10 Best Wine Travel Destinations for 2014” by Wine Enthusiast magazine! The Texas Hill Country is one of only three regions from the United States (Sonoma and Walla Walla, WA are the other two) to make the list this year.
In the past ten years, Texas has really been pushing its wine, and the wines have only gotten better. Turns out, Spanish and Italian varietals grow well in the Hill Country! Great grapes include Tempranillo, Viognier, Sangiovese, and Tannat. National recognition in a time when many states are building their wine programs (here’s looking at you, Virginia) is very exciting.
Texas is the number 5 wine-producing state in the US with the Texas Hill Country AVA being the second largest in the nation (everything’s bigger …). For more on the Texas Hill Country Wineries, visit TexasWineTrail.com.
