Mike, the owner of the new Hye Meadow Winery in Hye, Texas

(map) One of the newest wineries to appear along the popular 290 wine trail, Hye Meadow is technically not even open. But as you can see, owner Mike is a friendly guy, the kind who’ll welcome you right into his winery itself for a tasting. Eight wines are available for tasting, three of which are made exclusively with Texas grapes. That’s the ripe and floral Texas Viognier, below. Delish!

The new tasting room is still a work in progress, but coming along nicely. The plan is to throw a big grand-opening party on Saturday, July 27, with live music, appetizers, and of course, lots of wine. The tasting room patio will extend out to a big deck overlooking the impressive oak groves.

The other two exclusively Texas wines are the Junkyard Red, a spicy blend of mourvedre, merlot and tempranillo. Besides the Viognier, there’s an off-dry, full-bodied Orange Moscat. Washington State Chardonnay, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling round out the tasting list.

There’s a huge party pavilion, also overlooking the oaks, with a dance floor. Below, the front of the new tasting room. For now, tastings continue at the winery on weekends. Cheers!
