“Some may think the only reason to drink a white wine from Texas is because of our hot weather, but that’s not it,” shares Cheramie Law, co-founder of Salt and Pepper Wine. “The diverse Texas terroir supports a dozen white grape varieties, meaning one can go on a wine trip around the world without ever leaving the state!”
Texas is vast— clocking in slightly larger than France in square miles. And like France, its wine regions are diverse: ranging from the dry Texas High Plains with elevations from 3,000-4,000 feet, to the 4,500-8,300 feet, wet and cool Texas Davis Mountains, with everything in between.
The Texas Hill Country, second largest grape growing area in the United States, hosts a wide array of microclimates. The diversity of soil, sun, and sky—what the French call terroir—supports a wide range of grapes in the state.
“We are making some darn good wine in Texas,” exclaims Law. “Our growers, winemakers and industry leaders have put in a tremendous amount of time, energy, and money in figuring out how to make the best wine from all parts of Texas.”
As Texas wines increase in national popularity, attention focuses on the high-quality red wines produced in the state. But, alongside beautiful examples of Tempranillo, Sangiovese, and Mourvèdre exist an array of white wines of equal caliber. In fact, according to the United States Department of Agriculture, in 2019, twenty-nine percent of the state’s wine production was white wine.
