Winemaking in Fredericksburg, Texas is a Local Art

I loved working on this piece, and talking with so many creative and passionate winemakers and industry professionals in Fredericksburg, Texas. Growing conditions pose a unique challenge, as the growing season is short due to high heat and late autumn freezes. Winemakers in Texas Hill Country are finding the varietals that will thrive by experimenting with grape cloning, growing rare Portuguese varietals, and crafting single-varietal Italian and Rhône wines.
