Texas is divided into three main wine growing regions with a vast range of diversity and microclimates. This diversity allows for many different types of grapevines to be grown in the state.
There are around 19 unique wine trails throughout Texas that you can navigate but unless you have a few months to explore you really need to pick just one or two because Texas is a VERY large state and many of the wine trails are a good distance apart. In fact, Texas Hill Country AVA is over 15,000 square miles all by itself! Texas has 8 designated “Viticultural Areas” each with their own microclimates providing a diverse varietals of grapes. All the usual suspects here plus some interesting ones including Tempranillo, Lenoir, Orange Muscat, Muscat Blanc, Muscat Canelli and Blanc du Bois. The key is planning ahead and bringing a guidebook!
