Unless you live in Texas, you may not have had the pleasure of sampling wines that are made in the Lone Star State. Texas ranks 5th in U.S. wine production, with over 400 bricks and mortar wineries, placing it behind only California, Washington, Oregon, and New York. While the largest winery density is in the Texas Hill Country, there are actually wineries across the state, including many outside of eight designated American Viticultural Areas (AVAs).
As part of Big Blend Radio’s 2nd Friday Food Wine & Travel Festival with the International Food Wine & Travel Association (IFWTWA), Shelly Wilfong, wine writer and host of the “This Is Texas Wine” Podcast, gives and overview of Texas wines and wine tasting experience.
