Winemaker / VINTNER / founder
Bobby Cox has been cultivating Texas vineyards since 1973. Following graduation from Texas Tech, Bobby and Jennifer Cox traveled the wine growing regions of France and the United States. In 1978, they returned to Lubbock and planted the first 15 acres of Pheasant Ridge.
The winery was founded in 1982. One year later, Bobby Cox produced a wine that would change history. In 1986, Bobby Cox's 1983 Pheasant Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon won Gold in the San Francisco International Wine Competition.
Today, Pheasant Ridge is back under the ownership of founders Bobby and Jennifer Cox. Pheasant Ridge has won over 200 medals in its 34 years of operation. It stands as the 7th oldest winery in the state, and 1 of approximately 4 100% Estate Wineries in Texas.
