Spring is just weeks away and traveling Central Texas is a fantastic weekend destination. One area that is a fantastic option for a place to stop during a wine tour or a date destination is Torre di Pietra. A winery dedicated to Texas and the grapes of Texas.
Its all in the label.
Everything you would want to know about a wine or about the origins of the grapes in the wine is located on the label Ken Maxwell ( owner and operator of Torre di Pietra which translates as Tower of Stone) is passionate about his wine and his family. Ken explained how each label will reveal to the purchaser not only the vintage, but where grapes originate.
Texas roots Texas winery and a Texas family
If you want to celebrate in Texas style and with locally-owned businesses, take a short drive to Torre di Pietra. Wine tasting, live music from Texas bands on Saturdays, and food from local restaurants provides a relaxed family atmosphere for all to enjoy.
Ken Maxwell is a proud owner and a proud family man. Weekends will find Ken and his wife Jenise greeting and speaking the language of wine to all visitors. Although all the wines are excellent, the most popular wine is "Dirty Girl." This wine has a taste very similar to beer, so all you beer drinkers now have a reason to go with your significant other on a tour or a well deserved date.
Everyone is a part of the business
Everyone is part of the business if you are a part of the Maxwell family. Generations of wine artisans, a lot hard work and focused talent has gone into the creation and presentation of this winery. It truly is a site to behold.
