Text from: Llano Estacado Website (click here). Photograph of bottle taken in the McPherson Cellars tasting room (May 2012).

  • 1975: Llano Estacado Winery charted in Lubbock, Texas.
  • 1976: Llano Estacado officially opens in January. First bottle of wine placed underneath cornerstone, taken from Lubbock’s first courthouse. Production: 1,300 cases.
  • 1977: Llano Estacado bottles its first wines (Cibola Blanca and Cibola Roja) under the “Staked Plains” label.

Trivia question: Who started this winery? Who made this wine?

Love to taste, talk and tweet about Texas wines and where they are in the global scheme for wines. After all that's the only way they will reach the full potential.
