From the Old French word vinetier, a vintner is a winemaker or wine merchant. With its sunny and dry climate, Texas is a premier destination for wineries and vineyards. Today Texas is home to over 200 wineries, making it the 4th largest wine producing state in the United States. Texas is one of the oldest wine producing states in the country, with vines planted here a hundred years before they were planted in California. The first recorded vintners were Spanish missionaries who produced wine in the 1650s near El Paso. Wine production in Texas Hill Country traces back to the region’s original German settlers, who produced wine using the native mustang grape.
