MORE NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR TEXAS HILL COUNTRY WINERIES #1 Hidden-Gem Wine Region by Away.com
Austin, TX- The Texas Hill Country has received yet another national accolade as the #1 Hidden-Gem Wine Region by Away.com. Three years ago the region was named the #2 fastest-growing wine destination in the nation (2nd only to Napa!) by Orbitz.com.
"I believe our quick move to a #1 position is largely due to consumers and media hearing our name mentioned in the same sentence as Napa lately. It seems to have provided them with a validity that the industry has long since known. We make exceptional wines in Texas and the Hill Country provides a romantic, unique and educational experience for all" states Katy Jane Bothum, Executive Director for Texas Hill Country Wineries.
As the Texas Hill Country AVA (American Viticultural Area) comes in to celebrating it's 20th Anniversary in 2011, the move to a number 1 spot couldn't be more fitting. With 27 member wineries and growing every year, the Texas Hill Country Wineries offer an unparalleled wine experience with hundreds of award-winning wines.
"The roots of Texas wine go back more than three centuries, but in the last few years, Texas Hill Country, north of San Antonio and west of Austin, has become one of the country's fastest growing wine destinations." -Top Ten Hidden-Gem Wine Regions.
