Introduction to Texas Wines
. The organization has planned a tour through its nature trails, paired with several wine varieties from the Lone Star State, for a full sensory experience. Interestingly, Texas is among the top five states for American wine production and has produced wine since the 1600s. For novice wine enthusiasts who want to try them, Texas wine expert Dr. Russell Kane will be on hand to explain the subtle differences of each wine. Guests will be in good hands since Kane is the award-winning author of The Wineslinger Chronicles: Texas on the Vine and Texas Hill Country Wines
