October is Texas Wine Month! I’ll get the celebration off on the right foot with my guest Jennifer McInnis Fadel, general manager of Bending Branch winery in Comfort.
I’m also sharing the latest news about the Texas wine industry including results from the 2021 Texas Vintners Cup. Texas Monthly and Uncork Texas Wines organized a new way to recognize 12 very special Texas wines. Plus, hear about California wineries coming to Texas, wineries and vineyards for sale, and more.
