CHOW Tour Austin: Purple Gold, Texas Wine

When we heard there was a wine country outside of Austin (the Texas Hill Country AVA), we were immediately intrigued, mostly because, well, we had never really thought about the fact that winemaking was happening in Texas. To learn more, we called wine writer and Texas wine expert Wes Marshall to school us about the history of winemaking in Texas, and tell us what was worth checking out. When he mentioned an iconoclastic winemaker passionately following natural winemaking methods and really trying to express Texas terroir, we knew we had to go meet this guy and see what his wine, La Cruz de Comal, was all about.
