Meadow Vineyards

Yes, we grow our own grapes — all of them. We are one of only a hand full of Texas wineries that sell only 100% estate bottled wines. We currently own or manage over 200 acres of grapes in production in the Texas High Plains AVA.

We currently bottle six blends with at least one more planned. We then bottle thirteen of our varietal wines with plans for more in future harvests.

RED GRAPES

Cabernet Frac, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Dolcetto, Merlot, Mourvèdre, Petit Verdot, Ruby Cab, Sangiovese, and Tempranillo. New plantings of Teroldego and Graciano spring of 2017.

WHITE GRAPES

Albariño, Gewürztraminer, Malvasia Bianca, Marsanne, Moscato Giallo, Roussanne,  Sémillon, Trebbiano, Chardonnay, Vermentino, and Viognier.

Our first vineyard planting was in the fall of 2003. We plant our vines four feet apart on rows spaced eight-feet apart. This gives us more plants per acre than many vineyards. This creates a better micro-climate increasing inter-plant competition helping promote lower vigor and helping keep the plants from getting too growthy. Because the vineyards are on eight-foot spacing, we have a smaller set of tractors and equipment to cultivate and maintain the vineyards than we use for our other row crops. We also utilize GPS-driven tractors to perfect the accuracy of our rows. In addition, we have developed a special planter, t-post driver, and plows to automate the installation of the planting and trellis system. We use a Gregoire harvester. In addition we use a mechanical pruner to allow pruning to be delayed and minimize hand pruning.

 

We grow grapes for our winery as well as for these excellent Texas wineries
