We support the grape growers of Texas, and we commit to make wine 100% from Texas grapes
– French Connection Wines –
We source our fruit from the Texas High Plains AVA as well as higher elevation sites in the mountains of West Texas. These locations provide warm sunny days with cooler nights. This diurnal shift extends the growing season, allowing the opportunity for grapes to fully ripen. Of course, weather likes to have its way, so every vintage has its challenges.
Our wines are made from grape varieties typically grown in the Rhône Valley, which can be grown successfully in Texas. Varieties we choose for winemaking include Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Counoise, Cinsault, Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier, Picpoul Blanc and others. We keep a close eye on our blocks to make picking decisions at the best possible time.
We have a quarterly newsletter to help everyone stay connected. Sign up and keep up to date on upcoming wine releases and winery events. You don’t want to miss out!
