 Red Wing Dove wines are family estate grown on a rolling Texas hillside. The special trellis design is optimal for southerly breezes to flow-through the vineyard, to bath the grapes in gentle morning sun, and provide protection of the grapes from the well-known afternoon heat.   The grapes’ natural body and breadth of flavors develops from the limestone enriched soil along with loving care that each hand-pruned vine receives.   Once harvested, grapes are immediately whisked away from the vineyard into the air conditioned winery, thus ensuring the freshest wine possible.  Grapes from the beautiful valleys of California were imported due to low yields in 2013.   All of our wines are produced from fresh, vinifera grapes at the winery in Hamilton, Texas.
