If you didn’t know, last year, in 2022, I filmed a documentary about the history of Texas wine and the Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association (TWGGA). I released it to the public today, March 24, 2023. If you’d like more insight into the industry, then I’d appreciate it if you checked it out. I intentionally didn’t allow the video to be embedded, so click the link below to watch it on YouTube. Yes, it’s an ugly box but it’ll get you there.
While wine has been made in Texas for hundreds of years, we tend to only think about those that started in the 1970s. Titans of TWGGA details that history of those pioneers and the challenges they faced just trying to make wine in a state where it was nearly impossible to make wine with the formation of the Texas Wine & Grape Growers Association (TWGGA). 14 Past Presidents of the organization tell their stories and how TWGGA was instrumental in the history of the Modern Texas Wine Industry. They also discuss how TWGGA continues to be the most important organization to both wine growers and wineries in the state.
