Melinda Esco blended her love of Texas travel with an appreciation for wine and toured as many of the esteemed Texas wineries as possible. She discovered that, while some owners are native Texans and some are transplants, all share an infectious enthusiasm for their businesses. Texas wine-making is really agriculture-based tourism—a billion dollar industry—Texas big business at its best.
Esco gives a brief history of Texas winemaking, talks about the process, the business, and explores some of her favorite wineries. There’s even a glossary of terms: Legs? Nose? Tannic force?
The result is a delightful look at the people and places that make Texas wine one more thing Texans can brag about!
