Texas Hill Country Wineries Spurns Dallas On State Tour

Updated: Sep 20, 2023

by Andrew Chalk

One reason that Texas wines are hard to find on Dallas restaurant menus whereas Oregon, Washington, and California wines are ubiquitous in their states, is that the marketing of Texas wine is out of touch with reality.

Hence the event below. The Texas Hill Country Wineries, an association of 64 wineries located in The Hill Country, is doing a state tour and not going to one of the two largest wine markets in the state - Dallas (the other, obviously, is Houston). Mistakes like this will cost them millions in sales.


Join us for an evening of Hill Country Wine in Cowtown! Texas Hill Country Wineries is bringing 20 wineries and over 60 wines from the Hill Country to Fort Worth for an evening tasting experience. Come meet winery personalities including owners, winemakers, vineyard managers and more at Tannahill's Tavern & Music Hall.

Guests will experience Texas Hill Country wines at a walk-around tasting from 6-8pm featuring hand picked wines from each participating winery. You'll learn about what's happening in the vineyard, taste new wines and meet the heart and soul behind the Texas wineries right in your backyard.

That’s seems unnecessarily harsh and, frankly, uninformed. Did you bother to ask why Dallas was being “spurned”? I’m sure there are valid reasons. Our leadership and association staff, in particular, work extremely hard promoting our industry and do the very best with the resources at hand. Rather than lower the quality of your reporting with name calling please consider the “why“ of your criticism and report that too.

Thanks for your comment Jeff. Texas wine will never be big time in the state unless it is big time in Dallas and Houston. That is the most important thing.
