Becker Vineyards Iconoclast Cabernet Sauvignon offers notes of fed berry fruit with spice as well as rich and balanced tannins.
Twenty years ago began a search for a log cabin to renovate and create a hill country getaway for Dr. Richard and Bunny Becker. Having traveled extensively abroad and passionate about culinary and wine experiences. The Becker’s enjoyed frequenting the few local wineries as well. The cabin was soon discovered but along with it 46 acres of raw land, fallow fields of deep sand and Precambrian granitic soils 1500 feet above sea level. The site was rampant with native Mustang grapes, a time honored and essential component of the local German Heritage. Both Richard and Bunny were successful gardeners in their own right and the dream of a commercial vineyard and "maybe" a 1500 case winery began to take shape. The first plantings in 1992 were lovingly placed in the ground by friends and family, including the Becker’s two sons, Will and Joe. The first harvest in 1995 set in motion what is now just over a 100,000 case winery. With wines served in the stateliest of settings including the White House and the James Beard House. Becker Farms Inc. employs 50 people farms 46 acres of estate fruit and lavender along with the famous Stonewall peach orchards. As you make your way down Becker Farms Road, you will take in fields of native wildflowers, peach orchards and seasonal hay production. View all Becker Vineyards Wines

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
