At Brushy Creek Vineyards, located in the historic Cross Timbers region of North Central Texas, we are experimenting with 36 different vines to develop quality wines as unique as Texas. When Spanish missionaries came to Texas in the 1600's, wild grapes flourished over the landscape (over 50% of the known species of grape in the world grow in Texas). With a vast diversity in climate and soil, Texas was a grape paradise. As early as 1650 Father Garcia de San Francisco y Zuniga, the father of Paso del Norte (today's El Paso) was known for his vineyards and the sacramental wine he produced. The padre brought with him the Spanish black grape (Lenior) as did most padres sent to establish outposts in the vast Texas landscape. The arrival of Italian immigrants around 1875 in the Dallas area coincided with the exciting work that T.V, Munson was doing in the field of viticulture. A native of Illinois, Munson moved to Denison in 1876 and pursued his loves of grapes. Traveling across all of Texas Read more »

  • After last week’s disappointing look at value priced Zinfandel you would be right to think that this week’s take on value priced Syrah, with a focus on Australian Shiraz, might produce equally horrifying results. After all if there was a poster child for big, oaky, goopy, and slightly sweet wines in the marketplace Aussie Shiraz certainly would ... Read More

  • Sometimes your plans don't exactly work out as one anticipates. Say a trip planned around a grape, Zinfandel for example. Everything can go along swimmingly and then you come to a place where you have no problem with their Zinfandel, but Zinfandel as it turns out is not their story. Such was my visit to Unti, designed as part of an itinerary exp... Read More

  • It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy.  This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More

  • You have to love Australia’s red wines. If for nothing else than the sheer simplicity of twisting off a baker’s dozen of screw-caps as opposed to setting out to fight with so many corks. OK that’s not a tremendous motivation to get you to try these wines but it was a sweet sight for my sore eyes, or hand as the case may be. Some of these wines w... Read More

  • Brushy Creek Vineyards is one of a very few Texas wineries producing sparkling wines. They do small batches, which range from Chardonnay, Riesling, a blush blend, to what ever they may have a small quantity of at the time.

Too bad you can't really get away with that type of name in English. Guess we have to suffice with 'Big House' or 'Suckfizzle' or '10 Minutes by Tractor'... Read More
