For those who think California is the only place to go in order to sample the country’s best wines, they’ve obviously never been to a Texas wine tasting event. According to the Texas Wine & Grape Growers Association, Texas ranks 5th on the list of overall wine production in the U.S. with more than 420 growers and 273 wineries. And while most of these wineries and vineyards are located further away from the coast, there are still plenty of ways to get a taste. Whether you’re a connoisseur of the world’s finest wines or you just like to enjoy a glass or two with dinner every now and then, wine tasting events are always a good time and provide a great opportunity to explore different tastes.

Located approximately 40 minutes from our apartment community, A Wine Of Mine Winery is the closest winery to Corpus Christi.

What makes this winery so unique is the fact that you get to make your own wine!

After 4 to 8 weeks, the fermentation process is finished and you can go enjoy your own batch.
Part coffee shop, yoga studio, and wine bar, this quaint little place has everything you need for a fun night with your friends.
