Fischer & Wieser Launches First-Ever Texas Wine Collection
To their 50th anniversary this year, the Fredericksburg, TX-based company is launching its first-ever Culinary Adventure Wine Collection, beginning with four increasingly respected Texas wines.
With Fredericksburg’s German roots, the wine collection will not overlook the special wines of Germany and Austria. Indeed, its first two white wines are a dry Riesling and a gewurztraminer, both with origins in German-speaking Europe. All the same, appropriately as revered wines go, the line’s two reds gaze in different directions, to the Bordeaux region of France for a 50/50 blend of cabernet sauvignon and malbec and to Italy for Tuscany’s sangiovese blended with 20 percent cabernet.
Starting out, the Wine Collection will be sold exclusively at Das Peach Haus, the historic building that serves as Fischer & Wieser’s larger retail spaces on the family farm, site of a peach orchard that launched the idea for the company in 1928. These first wines in the collection, made from 100% Texas grapes, range from $20 to $25.
