20 Years of Texas Wine with Bénédicte Rhyne

Bénédicte Rhyne is my guest on this episode. If you don’t already know Benedicte, you’re in for a treat. In my interview with her, we talk about how Texas reminds her of her native Provence, how she strives for balance in winemaking, and her thoughts on the collaborative nature of the Texas wine industry.
Plus the latest news about the Texas wine industry.
Cheers, y'all!

Sommly is an online marketplace where wine enthusiasts can explore wineries, join wine clubs, read reviews and buy or give the gift of Texas wine. Similar to Etsy, Sommly enables artisan wineries to sell their wine direct-to-consumer and cut out the middleman. Sommly’s marketplace will be launching in Texas early this year.
