Spend an afternoon with Dr. Ra Inta, a Physicist who designed and built guitars for his Doctoral work. We’ll discuss the physics of sound and how the guitar makes sound, complete with songs on a guitar he made. Check your fear of Physics at the door!
Tickets are $10 per person, seating is limited to ensure this remains an intimate event! Purchase tickets at: https://www.pheasantridgewinery.com/store/science-uncorked-guitar-acoustics-explained-by-physics
Dr. Inta currently studies the vibrations of (and traveling through) space-time, known as gravitational waves, at Texas Tech University. His previous research includes vibratory communication in termites and standing electron waves in quantum devices.
Science... Uncorked is a series of TED-style talks hosted at Pheasant Ridge Winery. We invite scientists and artists studying our world to spend 20-30 minutes sharing what they’ve learned on an approachable level. We love spreading “Ideas worth Drinking to.”

Pheasant Ridge Winery was awarded Gold at the 2017 TEXSOM International Wine Awards.
There were over 3,500 wines from 29 countries entered into competition. Wines were judged blindly by 71 wine professionals from around the world. This year was the largest competition ever.
Only nine Texas wines won a Gold Medal, including our own 2015 Old Vine Dry Chenin Blanc.
This wine holds a special place in our hearts, as it is the first wine Bobby and Jennifer Cox have released since buying the winery back. We're honored to have received this award, and hope it's only the first of many we bring back to the Texas High Plains region!
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!
What's your favorite Pheasant Ridge wine?
We know you've been anxiously awaiting updates on the tasting room. We're months away from any announcements, but progress is being made at the winery. Here's the old tasting room and lab with fresh paint!
Pardon this fluff piece!
We're rarely alone in the vineyards. Here's proof! A cotton tail on a stroll through our cab vines.
