The Top 30 Texas Wines for Spring

Go ahead and give these a swirl. Our favorites for the season, from crisp whites to juicy reds.

BY JESSICA DUPUY ISSUE APRIL 2018

 It’s a great time for Texas wine. The state’s vintners have never been so flush with acclaim from international competitions, national publications, and wine professionals. And this spring’s selection exemplifies the improvements happening across Texas.

Our most consistent wines come from the Texas High Plains American Viticultural Area, which is located in the Llano Estacado region and accounts for nearly two thirds of the state’s vineyard plantings. But advancements in the management of vineyards in the Texas Hill Country AVA have led to a higher caliber of wine from that region, making it one to watch.

A main reason for the state’s increase in quality, at least among white wines, is the focus on Vermentino, Viognier, and Picpoul Blanc grapes, which are native to the warmer Mediterranean climates of Italy and Southern France and therefore well suited to the weather conditions in some parts of Texas. These grapes produce crisp, mineral-driven wines with high citrus tones and floral aromas.   :snip: https://www.texasmonthly.com/food/top-30-texas-wines-spring/
