As 2018 draws toward a close, its with a sigh of relief that we look back - for just a moment - before we look ahead to 2019. And you, our friends, are aware, our crew has been working for some years to bring Texas Heritage wine to market. That milestone happened in May, and we have not looked back.
Our Original 300 Club, our "believers" have been our stalwart supporters during these first 8 months. It cannot be overstated how much that mean to us and to "the brand". Kudos go out to our winemaker, John Rivenburgh, for his leadership and steady hand. Kudos also to our friends at 1851 Vineyards for their custome crush work on our grapes at harvest in 2016 and part of 2017.
We have made great friends, great strides and learned much about this crazy, fun, hard business.
When our forefathers first traveled to the vast land that is not Texas, their path was rough and unpredictable. They depended on their grit and determination. They improvised. They banded together to help each other get through the rough times. They shared their resources and their knowledge. And they perservered.
In 2019 and beyond, we shall depend on each other and on our fierce Texas independance and courage to forge a new path with each of you and our Texas Heritage Wines. It's going to be fun - an advenure - and enlightening. And its just the beginning.
Thanks to each of you for the huge part you play in Texas Heritage. Please invite your friends and neighbors to experience Texas hospitality and our wine! You mean the world to us!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
