Wineries often start out by having a vineyard and then expand into a winery operation. Threshold Vineyards did exactly that. We first tasted the wines of Threshold Vineyards at the Texas Reds Steak & Grape Festival in Bryan. Pouring the wines were the Jeter family: Kimbrough, Betsy, Josh, Ben, and Jordan. It is a family affair and Josh is the head winemaker.
The Jeter family started their vineyard growing the typical Gulf Coast varieties Blanc du Bois and Black Spanish. The tasting room opened next to the vineyard, and it was then that we were able to visit their winery. The last time we visited Threshold Vineyards was during the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail’s February Wine Trail event.
Wines offered in the cozy tasting room were estate wines plus other Texas wines made with grapes from Reddy Vineyards. These were the wines during our last visit:
- 2019 Blanc du Bois
- 2019 Blanc du Bois Semi Dry
- 2020 Blanc du Bois
- 2020 Blanc du Bois Semi Dry
- 2019 Viognier
- 2019 Rosé of Cinsault
- 2018 High Plains Red Blend (64% Sangiovese, 36% Alicante Bouschet)
We heard of other wines coming out soon and we look forward to tasting those when they are available.
The winery is very easy to find off Highway 6 near Navasota, so plan a visit and tell them Texas Wine Lover sent you!
