Where Do You Buy Texas Wine?

After having searched often for Texas wines to participate in TXWine Twitter Tuesday or other mentions of Texas wine I wanted to try, I thought I would find out where do you buy your Texas wine?

Obviously if you live near or are visiting a Texas winery that is the best place to get Texas wine. The wineries should have all their wines available and you will not have to search for it. For the rest of us, we need to go to a retail store to buy Texas wines.

Texas wine - displaySince we live in the Houston area, here are some stores we are aware of which sell Texas wines.

  • Grocery stores like Kroger, HEB, Randall’s, Fiesta, Whole Foods Market, and Central Market
  • Liquor stores with the biggest one being Spec’s. Other good stores I have seen are Wine Styles, Top Shelf Wine and Spirits in Sugarland, and Value Discount Liquor selling the hard to find Chisholm Trail wines. Most liquor stores carry a small selection of Texas wines. A nearby store has bottles from Messina Hof with labels which are extremely old so I’m not sure how well the wine has aged.
  • A little further from Houston in Montgomery is Rancher’s Daughter which carries just Texas wines with a very large selection

KE Cellars - outsideIn our travels, we have also come across stores and tasting rooms who also sell Texas wines.

    • KE Cellars in Lindale has a large selection of just Texas wines. There is also KE Cellars Winery in Rockwall.
    • Lone Star Wine Cellars in McKinney sells many other local Texas wines in addition to their own
    • Handy Farms in Scroggins has a decent selection of just Texas wines and they’ll let you taste any of them before buying
    • Cripple Creek & Company in Bastrop only sells Texas wines

That is what we know of. To help others, where do you buy Texas wine?

  1. @rfrederichs (Richard F) said, “There’s the Fiesta on West Alabama in Houston, which actually has a nice selection.”

    David King suggested the Grapevine Texas Wine Bar in Gruene (http://www.grapevineingruene.com)

  2. In Fort Worth I can find a selection of the “large” wineries at Goody Goody on Hulen and I20, Central Market on Hulen, and HEB’s across the metroplex. Two Bucks Liquor at I35 and Felix has a very nice selection of smaller wineries. Simply Zinful in Cleburne is selling a variety of wineries from across the state.

  3. Great list, Jeff…

    My question is this:

    I have heard that we are getting a Trade Joe’s coming into the hood to take the retail slot in the old Alabama theater. Does anybody know if they typically carry local wines at their stores in other locations?

    It’s within walking distance from me!!!
