Podcast topics will also include Texas wine travel recommendations, industry trends, and legislative developments. New episodes will be released every other week.
“Texas needs a dedicated wine podcast because more people need to understand, take pride in, and ultimately drink, Texas wine,” Shelly Wilfong said. “Texas is a rapidly developing wine region that’s producing great wine. It’s an exciting industry to watch. From new varieties planted in the vineyard to new approaches in the winery, the Texas wine industry is progressing at a rapid pace. Texas is making some premium wine that deserves attention. It’s those wines, and those stories, that I want to share with a larger audience.”
