The Texas High Plains is the second largest AVA in Texas, comprising roughly 8 million acres in west Texas, mostly south of the panhandle region.  The eastern border of the Texas High Plains AVA follows the 3000 ft. elevation contour line along the Caprock Escarpment, the steep transitional zone separating the High Plains from the lower plains to the east.  The elevation within the Texas High Plains gradually increases from 3,000 ft. to 4,100 ft. in the northwest portion of the AVA.  This positioning provides an environment of long, hot dry summer days, which allow the grapes to mature and ripen to proper sugar levels, and cool evenings and nights, which help set the grape’s acidity levels.  Grapes and wine have been produced in this region since the mid-1970s and vineyards here have become the major grape supplier to wineries throughout the state.  There are over 75 Wine Grape Varietals planted in the High Plains AVA, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Grenache, Merlot, Malbec, Dolcetto, Mourvèdre, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, and Viognier.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
a fresh, fruity Rose’ with notes of strawberry, tart cherry and bright acidity.
Winemaker Notes
We age our Rose’ separately, all in stainless steel. To lightly soften the resultant acidity, we blend the two Rose’s in neutral French Oak before moving back into stainless prior to bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Rose’s pair with light salads, shellfish, light fish, light cheeses, and tapas, but are most enjoyed on their own.
