Using grapes from both TX and CA we produce summery, light and slightly dry whites. All our wines are vinted and bottled in Texas.
As directed take a Chill Pill, relax and enjoy this semi-dry and enticing California blend of 50% Pinot Grigio and 50% Muscat. Note a range of tropical fruit, florals and spices and the stress of the day disappears.
Truth tellin is a byproduct of this highly drinkable, medium-dry blend of 50% Texas High-Plains Muscat Orange and 50% Texas Muscat Blanc. With an orange blossom nose and scents of citrus and spices it is a wine best served chilled.
An homage to the aptly named Dog Day Cicada you’ll see our rosé is not the norm.
A few years ago rosé was passé and “so 1970’s”, now it’s everywhere. With good reason we say! While the popular colors tend towards pink, we expose our wine a bit longer to the red grape skins of our outstanding blend of Texas High Plains grown Mourvèdre, Tannat, Montepulciano and Sagrantino fruit to bring you this rich and robust “scotch-hued” beauty. It is semi-dry, fruity and robust!
We’ve gone to great lengths to source the finest TX and CA grapes to blend these creative and limited production Red Wines. All our wines are vinted and bottled in Texas.
One of our flagship wines, this lovely Tempranillo, was created from the grapes of one of Texas’ premier vineyards, Newsom Vineyards, on the High-Plains of the Lone Star State. The #1 wine grape in Spain and the 4th most planted world-wide, Tempranillo is making serious in-roads on to Texas vineyards and in to TX wine. Smooth and dry with notes of plum, cherry, leather and tobacco this wine is on its way to being the premier varietal in Texas!
This creatIve deep red blend of Texas-grown Petite Sirah, Anglianico and Cinsaut is the perfect remedy to cure just about any dilemma left nagging at you at the end of a long day. Medium-dry and richly colored this blend will present tones of blackberries, blueberries, dry herbal notes and fragrant rosemary. Pairs beautifully with southern Italian dishes.
California Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet team up to provide the crimson red depth and complexity insuring trouble (if by “trouble” we mean a great, great wine we plead guilty). You’ll love the color, the nose and the finish of this one as you catch hints of spice, black fruit and a smooth eathiness that leave you wanting more.
This is our pèice de résistance! We’ve taken a marvelous blend of California Sagrantio, Tinta Cao and Petite Sirah that had been oak-aged for several years and placed it for three months in freshly used whiskey barrels from the renowned Garrison Brothers distillery. As Texas’ oldest (legal) distillery Garrison Bros. produces a remarkable straight bourbon from oak barrels that we secure as soon as possible after the whiskey is dumped to quickly seat our blends and wait for the magic to happen.
Cicadas have been noted throughout history as harbingers of good luck and are synonymous with the lazy days of summer, so much so that the most common variety found (and heard) in Texas is the Dog Day Cicada. The song of these critters is the background noise of summer as grapes grow, ripen and are prepared to create the gift that is wine.
We are small and artisinally focused so our wines will reflect a creativity sense of adventure and fun. We want to take you to experiences unlike the “standards” of Cabs, Pinots, Malbecs and Chardonnay wines. Producing small (limited) quantities of each blend allows us the flexibility and freedom to not be boxed-in with contracts for quantities of grapes that simply don’t work for us (or you). We like small.
