Forked tendrils: Llano Estacado Winery and the rise of the modern Texas wine industry

dc.creatorSanchez, Eric D.
dc.description.abstractIn this work I will examine the historical development of Llano Estacado Winery and the modern Texas wine industry—each chapter discussing the chronological evolution and creation of both—and the central role that Llano Estacado played in supporting a nascent industry. Chapter II focuses on the complexity- of growing wine and table grapes in Texas and indicates the problems experienced by the first individuals who sought to cultivate this crop in Texas. Chapters III and IV introduce the reader to the way in which the development of a backyard decorative grape led to expanded experimental vineyards and wineries across the state. Chapters V and VI focus on the creation of the first modern winery in Texas; the legislative lobbjring efforts to change antiquated, state hquor laws; and the ways in which Llano Estacado Winery influenced the development of the entire Texas wine and grape industry. Since no previous work has been written on this topic, much of the research and interpretations are based upon oral interviews with the original participants.
