Bob Landon has been making wine for decades, but he didn't always have French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks at his disposal. His first forays into small-batch winemaking took place in his basement, but like Batman's love of justice, his hobby was soon elevated to a profession. Today, he and the Landon Winery staff cultivate Texas–grown viognier and tempranillo grapes into a rotating selection of house varietals.
At either location, oenophiles can deepen their knowledge of wines or simply explore the facilities. The McKinney location features an old well that dates back more than 150 years, and the 15,000 square foot Greenville location boasts more than 100 oak barrels filled with grapey blends and one batch of orange juice just pretending. Landon Winery also hosts events and classes that allow visitors to pair wines with food, sample sips, and make their own custom wines.

Dan Gatlin is a bona fide pioneer in the field of Texas winemaking. His father owned a chain of convenience and wine and spirits stores, which meant Dan was closely attuned to the rise of winemaking in California in the 1970s. In 1981, Dan took a shot at spurring the same type of enterprise in Texas, opening a small vineyard that would one day grow into the successful Inwood Estates Vineyards. Today the winery produces red and white wines that take advantage of Texas's distinctive terroir, or soil, to produce complex flavors.

Phillip Nikpour’s tasting room evokes the laid-back vibe of Napa Valley. You can hang out for a while or simply grab a bottle to go. It’s all part of the former personal trainer’s philosophy for living a happy, healthy life with plenty of time set aside for wine-based therapy.
2006 marked the first harvest at Cathedral Mountain Vineyard, which was founded solely to stock Times Ten Cellars. Perched in the desert mountains just south of Alpine, the vineyard seems a world away from the cool, comfortable atmosphere of the cellars’ tasting room and lounge.
