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)

    Visited Becker Vineyards in June. Took home a few bottles after the tasting. The zin doesn't have the body of most that I have had in the past, but has a wonderful smokiness and spiciness. Very enjoyable. This was the 2010 Zinfandel. Read More
