Musings on Mason (TX) with Don Pullum

Don Pullum is a proud resident and ardent supporter of Mason, Texas. In this episode, tells me about why he chose Mason to plant a vineyard back in the 90s, and what makes it special today. There’s also BIG news about how big the Texas wine industry is, how many acres are planted, and much more.
Cheers y'all!
