    Winemaker Notes

    A classic Chardonnay, expressing fruit and earth notes. A long, cool fermentation in both Stainless Steel tanks and oak barrels, then aging sur lees for one years in barrel, ensures the aromatic perfumes, crisp, fruit-forward flavors and full body with an toasted oak finish.

    Becker Vineyards Winery Image
    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.

    Maintained by a long history of knowledgeable grape growers and a current generation of persevering winemakers, modern Texas wine production continues to flourish. Today Texas ranks fifth in production volume and boasts a number of variations in climatic conditions and terrain suitable for viticulture.

    The Spanish planted the first vineyards in the state in the 1660s in Ysleta Mission near what is now El Paso. Texas is also home of the famous taxonomist, Thomas Munson, who led extensive research in the 1880s on vine breeding and is credited with saving Europe from complete phylloxera devastation. His results led to the French importation of huge amounts of American species phylloxera-resistant rootstocks, which when grafted onto their non-resistant Vitis vinifera species, prevented the spread of the disease.

    Today Texas boasts over 275 bonded wineries and eight official American Viticultural Areas (AVAs). Some of the main AVAs include Texas High Plains, Texas Hill Country, Bell Mountain, Escondido Valley and Fredericksburg.

    After experimentation with popular California varieties yielded mixed results, many growers have turned their focus to heat and drought-resistant Mediterranean varieties. Grapes such as Syrah, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Viognier and Vermentino are well-suited to the Texas environment, especially the Texas High Plains AVA in the northwestern Panhandle of Texas where vineyards are planted at 3,000-4,000 feet. This AVA receives of plenty of sunshine and cool nighttime temperatures support acid retention.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
