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)

  • Fredricksburg Winery Cuvée IV 2004


    Fine example of the petite verdot grape...at least for it being grown in Texas. Full bodied and full of flavor. Perhaps not worth the price at the winery but leap above the others in the Cuvée series with a blend of Malbec. Read More
