Texas Hill Country Wine

True to Texan tradition, this AVA is the second largest certified Viticultural Area in America. With well over 9 million acres in the heart of Texas, it is no wonder that other more specific AVA’s, such as Bell Mountain and Fredericksburg, have been identified as unique microclimates within this blanket AVA. The wines of this massive region, north of San Antonio and west of Austin, range from Bordeaux blends to Italian varietals, as well as cool climate grapes such as Riesling. This is a quality wine producing region and the wines have won numerous awards both at home and internationally. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

  • Just thought I'd add a little something to the "wine I would not drink again...given a choice" thread. I returned from Texas last month, and must say things haven't changed much in "Hill Country", basically Lodi on steroids. For those of you that haven't experienced the Lone Star State's take on wine, it's quite interesting. I started off mid-mo... Read More

  • Leaving for a week in "Texas Hill Country" for a few winery reviews, seminars and better yet...BBQ! It's the Loan Star states answer to Napa valley!

Go figu... Read More

    Had this at Mercat Bistro in Dallas. Nice little number. Crisp and Bright with good Acidity and stone fruit and floral and herbal complexity. Had with a quiche and imagine that it would pair well with any number of foods. At this price point, great. Read More

  • Fall Creek Vineyards Chardonnay Texas Hill Country NV

    Snoothrank:

    Spent a few days in the Hill Country tasting wines from my home state. Most were still not very good, but this sub-$10 Chardonnay was a pleasant surprise. A tasty, straight forward Chardonnay with apples and citrus fruit, delightfully un-oaked. Went well with shrimp and crab gumbo. Read More
