This winery was founded in 1976, making it not only the largest but also the oldest of the modern Texas wineries. Among the two dozen wines produced, the chardonnays have won plaudits.
Located 14 miles north of Lubbock near the town of New Deal, this winery is known for its range of wines, including the expected cabs but also a zesty chenin blanc. The tasting room is functional at best.
About four miles southwest of the Llano Estacado winery, CapRock Winery is worth a visit for its beautiful mission-style headquarters, a showplace both inside and out. CapRock makes about a dozen wines.
