Texas wineries are facing a crisis. For the second time this year, tasting rooms have been shut down by executive orders of the Governor. Tasting rooms are a significant source of income and marketing opportunities for Texas wineries and many wineries will not be able to sustain a prolonged shutdown.
This is having a real impact on the lives of winery owners, employees, farmers, and various other businesses dependent on the Texas wine industry.
Just as important, it’s affecting your ability to enjoy the wine and wineries you’ve come to love!
DONATE now by contributing through your favorite winery or related organization. We recommend at least a $50 donation (roughly the cost of a nice bottle of wine) to help us raise awareness and Save Texas Wineries. Also, if you donate at least $50, you have the option of receiving our Save Texas Wineries t-shirt!
ADVOCATE after donating. You’ll be given instructions to write a letter of support to your state elected officials with the click of a button. It takes less than two minutes to complete and it does make a difference!

Texas wineries have a direct and indirect economic impact of close to $15 billion to the state of Texas every year, including over $1 billion paid in state and local taxes. PLEASE help us save Texas wineries, the jobs they create, and the tourists they serve.
