To everyone that braved the mud and rain for tastings today, we just wanted to take a second to thank you! We're blessed to have the customers we do, and will continue to do our best to earn your business.
Texas Wine Journal Tasting Director Daniel Gelada, after tasting our 2006 Chenin Blanc, asked "why don’t we see more of these great wines being produced today in the modern, burgeoning Texas wine industry?"
We can't speak for the industry, but we're happy to speak for ourselves. We've cared for some of our Chenin Blanc vines for over 37 years. They have produced, and continue to produce, exquisite Texas wine.
Our 2011 Dry Chenin Blanc is an excellent example of how Texas can do Chenin Blanc right. We invite you to give it a try! Remember we ship wines for free within the state of Texas!
It's been another busy week here at the winery. That said, Texas sunsets make it all worthwhile. From your friends at Pheasant Ridge, have a glass of wine and enjoy your evening!
Pheasant Ridge fan Michael Clark just sent us a photo proving he's been going to the right sort of wine parties!

Big news coming later this afternoon! Stay tuned, we can't wait to show you what we've been working on!
Here's a clue:
Some great Pheasant Ridge wines lined up for glamour shots a few days ago.
All of us at Pheasant Ridge Winery are thinking of John E. Crosby Jr., whom we lost last Saturday. He was a stalwart of the early days of the Texas industry. He was a true pioneer of Texas Wine. His passion for Texas wine was unwavering, even when others in the industry had doubts. There is no question that without John, the Texas wine industry would not exist as it does today. He will be sorely missed.
