Texas Wine Lover®
Texas Wine Lover® was founded early in 2011 by Jeff Cope to help promote Texas wine. Jeff and Gloria Schlanser first started visiting many Texas wineries in January 2010 and felt their experiences could benefit both consumers and producers. The blog began by describing their experiences at each winery, but quickly moved into providing news about the Texas wine industry too. Along the way, news about non-Texas wine, product reviews, and more were added, because after all, one does not only drink Texas wine.
The Texas Wine Lover blog has been named one of the top wine blogs in the world in multiple lists.
The goal also at Texas Wine Lover is to provide the latest up-to-date listings of wineries including a winery map with their locations to help you plan your visits. The winery listings are always being checked, but sometimes a new winery escapes our sight, so please let us know if there is a winery currently open or opening which is not listed.
To make Texas wine, you need both the combination of great grapes and great wineries, so also only here is an attempt at a complete list of Texas Vineyards regardless of their affiliation. Again, if there is a vineyard which is not listed, even if it may only be an acre, please let us know and it will be added.
In January 2023 we announced that Amie Nemec is a new co-owner of Texas Wine Lover®! Amie had been a contributing writer for Texas Wine Lover and she expanded her role to offer her business skills, winemaking knowledge, and connections in the industry to help grow and expand the Texas Wine Lover brand.
