We Texans like have a superiority complex like there's no tomorrow. I mean we DO live in the greatest state, and we don't ever hide that fact from anyone. We do think that we are the best at most everyting......
Well not to knock us down a peg or two (although we sometimes could use it), but a nice blurb from the Ft. Worth Star Telegram and where the great state of TEXAS ranks in the world of wine:
Texas is the fifth-largest wine state in the nation, farming over 3,100 acres and producing about 8.7 tons of grapes. The Texas wine industry contributes about $170 million a year to the state's economy and supports 1,600 jobs.
WE ARE ONLY FIFTH!!!!! Texas Wine Makers, YOU CAN DO BETTER!
Seriously its great to see the growth of the Texas wine industry and things are only going to get better as we learn what grapes grow best wear and get smarter in our techniques both in the vineyard and in marketing.
