The 2010 Texas harvest was our first commercial year, crushing fruit from the Texas High Plains and Texas Gulf Coast. The season began with the harvest of 1.5 tons of Muscat Blanc from Palacios Vineyards near Brenham, Texas and concluded with the crush of 16 tons of 7 different red varietals from Reddy Vineyards in Brownfield, Texas, in the heart of the Texas High Plains AVA. Below is a photo gallery from the 2010 season. Enjoy!
