Sip of Texas

Move over Napa Valley, there’s a new wine kid garnering some attention. With close to 300 thriving vineyards and wineries, the Texas wine scene has gained worldwide attention in recent years. While most of Texas’s wineries are in the Hill Country, East Texas’ winegrowers make the grade, too. In Athens, the former home of Clint Murchison, founder of the Dallas Cowboys, lords over a winery owned and run by winemaker Patrick Pierce. Named Tara, the antebellum-style, turn-of-the-century mini-mansion anchors acres of blanc du blanc-planted terrain. Four stellar guest rooms await, each with spacious balconies overlooking the vines. A cabin and cottage also can be rented, making this getaway ideal for a wedding or reunion buyout experience. Customized stays include complimentary winery tours and tastings.
