Description


This is the premier guide to wines of the nation's fifth-largest wine producing state. For this edition, Austin wine writer Wes Marshall scouted new wineries from Big Bend's Davis Mountains to the bayous of East Texas, from Dallas to Del Rio, Galveston to Lubbock. He found nearly three times as many wineries to visit, met the vintners, listened to their stories and carefully tasted more than 1,000 wines to pick the best. The Wine Roads of Texas -- inspiration for the three-part PBS series of the same name -- clues you in with maps and directions to 82 Texas wineries; outlines the dramatic stories of their origins, survival and growth; tells where to find food, shelter and fun on 22 wine trips through Texas; and provides picks of the best wines and tips on how to taste them.
