Looking for the highest quality/rated Texas-grown wine or alcholic beverage. Price is no object.

  1. My wife and I live in Ny but took a trip to Texas Hill Country last fall. We loved the trip and can't wait to go back. While there we visited a lot of wineries and did enjoy of a few of them. We bought several bottles and actually list night just tried one. We were worried that we wouldn't like it as much as we did while in Texas. To our delight we loved it. The winery is Becker and we had the 2004 Claret.

      Note: I was trying to add a reply at the bottom, so this is not in response to any particular post.

      There are several related threads on the Wine board, amysuehere, that you might want to check out:

      The posters aren't necessarily all Texans, but there are some serious wine aficionados over there, too. For me, it's always helpful to get more perspectives.

    2. Well heck, if price is no object, get a whole case of Lone Star!

            Ditto on Tito's.
            Decent table wine: Ste Genevieve Cab or "Red" They're not great, but it's just as good as any table wine you'll find in a cafe or trattoria on the Continent. JMHO.
