Texas wine is having a moment.

Wineries in the Lone Star State draw 1.7 million visitors each year, making the area the second-most visited wine region in the US, behind Napa Valley.

Some of the state’s most lauded wineries lie just outside of Austin. Today, we’re telling you about one award-winning location: William Chris Vineyards.
