Wine Walk: Texas wine industry a major player in state’s economy

The Texas wine industry has evolved into a major economic component of the Texas economy. It was 43 years after Prohibition ended that Texas got its first new winery. Four years later in 1980 there were three new wineries along with the only winery to survive Prohibition, being Val Verde Winery in Del Rio, Texas. This winery was started in the 1800s by an Italian family and survived Prohibition by making sacramental wines for Christian churches. Those three new wineries in 1980 included Llano Estacado, Fall Creek and Messina Hof Winery. Twenty-five years later in 2005, Texas had 50 wineries. At that point, the Texas wine industry grew exponentially exceeding 500 wineries in 2018 with the number continuing to escalate. By the end of 2022, I predict that Texas should have 1,000 wineries.
