Let me start out by simply saying, this map of the Texas Wine Country is really cool! Besides being a nice vintage style map, it is very big and descriptive.
When you receive the map, it comes in a typical poster cardboard tube, but then it is wrapped and even ribbon tied inside too. So, there is plenty of protection. I said the map is big and the satin matte paper print is 36 inches by 40 inches. This is made to hang wonderfully on your wall. To make that even easier, the paper print is also available framed. Or you can buy a canvas print version of the map which is 40 inches by 44 inches because it includes a 2 inch blank space around the map ready to be stretched to a wood frame.
Ever wonder where the different American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) in Texas are located? I know I have. I have always had a difficult time determining exactly what is in the Texas Hill Country AVA and what isn’t. Now I can simply look at this map to tell me the answer. Besides showing where each AVA is located, there is a very detailed description of each AVA.
There is also a section describing the geography, geology, and the history and current state of wine in Texas.
The other nice part of the map is it shows where all the wineries in Texas are located. It even includes wineries that just opened in March 2018! I never realized after looking at the different winery names, how far we have traveled over the years. From looking closely through the map though, some wineries listed have been closed, sometimes even years ago. But perhaps that was the intention of the map makers to show a history of Texas wineries instead of just current wineries. Unfortunately, it is difficult to keep up with wineries that have opened and those that have closed, which is why our winery map remains popular as it can be updated easier than paper.
For more populated areas such as Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas Hill Country appellation, and southwest Austin Texas Hill Country, there are expanded maps which can show those detailed areas.
This may look like just a map, but it really is a work of art that deserves to be framed and hung on your wall. If you have the space for this map, definitely get it to enhance a wall in your house. You can purchase it on their website now or if you decide to purchase later, simply use their ad in the right sidebar.
