Historically having a short harvest period that sets Texas Vineyards behind, a shift in both wine demand and production methods in the wine industry has recently helped the region sustain a healthy harvest cycle. Now celebrating their annual grape harvest in the summer months of July – that’s four months ahead of growers in the ever-popular Napa region – the state has had one of their most successful seasons producing 38% more than 2017 and is continuing to grow each year.
