I've said it before, and I'll say it again- cotton may be king in West Texas, but wine is queen. The vast majority of Texas wine grapes are grown on the high plains. This environment, our environment, is ideal for making the best wines Texas has to offer. We live in delicious country.

One sip of great wine is a journey of flavors with notes that can range from chocolate to citrus, from jam to tobacco. The grape seeds themselves journeyed across the globe, and across time, to land here in our sunny soil.

So the short 20-minute drive from here to Lorenzo seems pretty insignificant in comparison, but more importantly, totally worth it, for the upcoming Vine to Wine event, which has a lot to offer- including incredible taste.


Embark on a sensory adventure as you stroll through the picturesque Cerro Santo vineyard and listen to the history from one of its passionate owners, Jim Irwin, and vineyard manager, Garrett Irwin. Learn about the different grape varieties, their unique characteristics, and how they influence the final flavor of the wines.

The event will be held at Adelphos Cellars, located at 13818 East F M 1527 in Lorenzo, Monday, August 28th at 7 p.m. The event will edify participants about different grape types and how they influence the final flavor of the wine. The highlight, of course, will be a curated wine and cheese pairing. The only thing better than wine is wine and cheese.

Tickets are available at Eventbrite.com 

Happy sipping, and enjoy the journey.
