  Blanc Du Bois
Blanc du Bois is a white grape specifically developed for the hot climate in Southern United States. It is the result of 40 years of cross-breeding at the University of Florida with several vinifera in its lineage, including Muscato. This is very apparent in its fruity and aromatic flavors which makes it a unique white wine reminiscent of a dry Riesling. Our 2005 Blanc du Bois has grassy and citrusy aromas and rich flavors of tropical fruits and bananas. It is a delicate white wine that goes well with mild seafood dishes or pasta. Since it has been aged in 100% stainless steel it has crisp and lively fruit. The finish is herbal and spicy with hints of lime.
  Harrison Plantation Port
The Harrison Plantation Port is our signature wine. We make Port in the same traditional way it has been made for centuries in Europe by interrupting the fermentation half way through with addition of oak aged brandy. This stops the fermentation before it is completed and leaves you with a wine rich in sugar, yet with an alcohol content around 20%. Port is the ultimate dessert wine and can be enjoyed by itself or with sweet desserts or chocolate. Our 2006 Port is made from Black Spanish and Favorite grapes blended with a few percent of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, and Malbec. It has dark rich flavors of ripe berries, chocolate and butterscotch. A small amount of new American oak adds toast and vanilla flavors to the finish.
  Heart of Texas Blush
Our Heart of Texas Blush is a light and fruity wine made for immediate consumption. It is primarily made from our Blanc du Bois grapes but is blended with a mix of traditional California varietals to give it color and a pleasant soft mouthfeel. Our blush is made with just a hint of residual sugar which brings out more character from the grapes. This style of blush combines the flavors of European Ros├ęs with the smoothness of California White Zinfandels.
  Heart of Texas Red
This is a smooth and soft red wine made in the style of Italian Chiantis. Yet, it does not have the sharp acidity sometimes encountered in Chiantis. In contrast to many young red wines the tannins are very soft making it a pleasant and fruity drinking experience without the "bite" of many of the heavily oaked red wines. This is a wine that goes well with any kind of food, from picnic to BBQ. Since its release in August 2006 it has consistently been our number one seller.
  Heart of Texas White
The Heart of Texas White is made from our Blanc du Bois grapes, but we have intentionally retained some of the natural sweetness of the grape. This is a wine that features the classic tropical and citrusy fruit flavors of Blanc du Bois, but with a pleasant touch of sweetness. The Heart of Texas White is a wine that can be enjoyed with spicy seafood or ethnic dishes, or by itself in the shade of your favorite mesquite tree.
Norton (also known as Cynthiana) is a North American red grape that produces a distinctive complex dry wine with lively fruit and soft tannins. Norton was the very first grape we planted at TCV and we use it for our premium red. The 2005 Norton is powerful in the mouth, with a rich, yet supple finish due to its rounded and soft tannins. The fruit has cherry and red currants mingling with sweet toasty flavors from a small amount of new American oak. It is a blend of 75% Norton, 15% Syrah and 10% Malbec. It can be consumed young or aged for 5-10 years for further development in the bottle. We recommend breathing it for at least an hour before serving.
  Sweet Dreams White Port
Sweet Dreams is made from our estate grown Blanc du Bois grapes. This is our most exquisite wine that brings out all the natural tropical fruit flavors of Blanc du Bois draped in rich velvety layers of natural sweetness. Sweet Dreams is always produced in very small quantities and we have already sold out of our first bottling.
