2018 is in the building, we harvested Tannat from #lapraderavineyards and Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc from #newsomvineyards on Friday night, and I got done unloading the truck and took that picture of our empty “loading dock” yesterday in our brutally hot, dry hill country weather...so glad El Niño is headed our way.
La Niña, you suck, but thanks for the deficit irrigation, looks like a knockout vintage for some reds. Looking forward to these last fermentations and barreling things down til winter. Been a long year. #americanwine#realtexaswine#texashighplainsava
Happy Labor Day to every hard worker that knows the value of putting in a long laborious day! Training the vines this morning I stumbled across these Tempranillo clusters. In the winery we started fermentation on our Neal Newsom High Plains 2018 Tempranillo. We were very lucky to get a few tons of these prized grapes! Thanks Neal! #newsomvineyards#holdtherain#tempranillo
Good trip to the #highplainsava sampling our blocks of Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão, Tempranillo, Mourvèdre, Cinsaut, Syrah, and Cab Franc. These pictures are from #newsomvineyards in our Cabernet Franc and Syrah blocks. Looks to be a killer vintage, tiny berries and balanced crop loads should show off with this 85-62 temperature swing and blue skies. #noharveyinwesttexas#lewiswines#harvest2017
The story of
#NewsomVineyards at Comfort + a big Comfort, Texas event!! ONE OF THE PIONEER GROWERS OF WINE GRAPES ON THE TEXAS HIGH PLAINS
The Newsom Family has been dedicated to growing high quality wine grapes on the Texas High Plains for over 30 years. Starting with 2 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon in the spring of 1986, Newsom Vineyards now grows a total of 150 acres, 19 varieties, and supplies fruit to over 10 wineries in the state.
Working with our great winery friends for decades, Newsom Vineyards has become the symbol of quality fruits and quality wine. 🎉🎉🎉 EVENT -
The Local Nobody's Texas Country Band from Lubbock, TX will be back in Comfort this Labor Day weekend. Excited to say there will also be Farm to Fork Gastro Truck and Firehouse Fare here serving lots of great food! The fun here is on Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 6 P.M. There will also be entertainment Friday-Sunday afterwards at @Huckleberrystx, a mere 50 foot walk, as well as entertainment at
@HillCountryDistillers next door! Can you find Comfort this Labor Day weekend?
Almost home - but not before spending an evening with Neal and Janice Newsom at Rockin' N B&B with a tour of Newsom Vineyards. Gus collected leaves from the different varieties and tasted Pinot Grigio grapes. Everything's looking good! #harvest2017#txwine#newsomvineyards#roadtrip#almosthome
After another long day in the vineyard we started working on 2015's red wines...the #newsomvineyards Cab Franc is a stunner, loads of red fruit, black currant, and pencil lead. Think we won't have enough of this one :) #realtexaswine#lewiswines
Great taste of Texas High Plains AVA wine that you won't find anywhere else. The Newsom family is among the first grape growers in the state, producing fruit for many of the award-winning TX wineries. Now they're offering their fruit under a namesake label. Stop in for a taste of the beautifully balanced, oak aged Inception Red Blend that offers a nice marriage of Old World/New World on the palate.
3 generations of High Plains grape growers #newsomvineyards at our Snout-to-tail dinner @ottosfbg Friday night was awesome. Thanks to all who came out and helped make this special night happen. #lewiswines
