I Found East Texas’ Little Secret? – Los Pinos Ranch Vineyards
At least once a year when we go visit our friend Pete and his wife in East Texas, we go to have dinner at Los Pinos Ranch Vineyards. It is the perfect setting for enjoying a nice dinner with one of their fine wines, while overlooking lush grape vineyards.
Los Pinos Ranch Vineyards is defined by an unhurried old world style, whether that’s the food or the friendly service. They believe wine and food is for sharing and having fun, so they feature a menu and service that’s wine and fun friendly! The Chef’s Special each weekend is always a unique and fantastic dining experience as well.
Not sure which wine to have with your meal? The friendly staff at Los Pinos will offer you a sampler of four from their large selection of fine wines for you to try.
Los Pinos wines are offered in a wide range of styles. We have divided our wines into two main categories; Sweet or Dry, because we believe most people are in one of those camps. Los Pinos produces wines from grapes grown in our estate vineyards, as well as from three Vineyards in west Texas. There are six varietals planted on our winery property, most abundantly are Blanc Du Bois, Cynthiana, and Black Spanish. These three varieties grow well in east Texas, as they are resistant to disease pressures that are inherent in our region, and are primarily made into our semi-sweet and sweet wines. The other three varieties are, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere’, and Champanel, that at present are mainly for disease studies with the help of the Texas Cooperative Viticulture experts.
Our West Texas Vineyards are located in the best wine grape growing region in the State, and has been designated as the Texas High Plains AVA. It has been discovered, that this Texas AVA has perfect growing conditions for Italian wine grape varietals.
