We just learned that East Texas has 17 wineries! That is amazing to us! There is something called the Piney Woods Wine Trail and there are 17 (count 'em) wineries on this trail!

Here are some links and notes on the wineries in East Texas
Texas Wine is Texas Gold! Trinity Pines Bed and Breakfast and the Texas Piney Woods Wine Trail! | Trinity Pines Blog

We couldn't be happier. If you've never tasted Texas Wine - we suggest you get your wine passport and give the wine country area closest to you a little tour.

Didn't know this but I will certainly look for Texas wine the next time I pick up a bottle.

Now you're sure it's not muscadine wine?

Kiepersol Estates & Winery here in Tyler is stocked to the brim with all different kinds of Texas made wines. You can even taste test them out on the patio or over a live pianist on some nights. Its right across the street from the mall.

They even bottle their own brand of wine at their huge winery just 15 miles south of town in Bullard, Tx.

I had forgotten there are wineries around Lubbock. I just had a bottle of a Llano Estacado blush.

Still I would like to try some good east Texas wine.

Yes, I know well where Bullard is. Used to have some friends who lived there but I believe they moved to Palestine. I had an aunt who lived at Tyler for many years.

Llano Estacado does have some good wines!

I miss my St. Genevieve (Fort Stockton) Texas white. At least LE will ship wines, but not St. G. Guess I'll have to stock up big time the next time I go home.

I have had some OK NM wines, but none I like so well as St. G.

I had no idea that East Texas had wines/wineries--I'd try them if I ever dared to set foot in ET again....only in the dead of winter, LOL!

I haven't been in the area in years, but at one time there were huge acreages planted in grape vines on lands owned by Univ. of Texas Systems and leased out to whoever actually tends those vineyards. These are located in Pecos County, TX. Like many vineyards today, they rely on drip irrigation.

I've driven by Enoch's Stomp outside of Harleton a couple of times and planned on stopping by but it never happened. I did buy a bottle at Don's though and it was pretty good.

I didn't know there were east Texas wines either but I will pick up a few bottles if I get back over there.

My brother and sister have been wanting me to come back to east Texas for some time now. I just can't take that humidity any more. At sunrise this morning I was installing a new metal roof on one of my barns out here near Lubbock and I thought, "Now if this was Lufkin, I would be soaking wet and miserable."
