From its humble start in the 1662 near present-day El Paso, when Spanish missionaries planted the State’s first vineyard, to its current status as the fifth largest wine producer in the nation, wine making in Texas has become a force and a figure in the industry.
The Texas Documentary Photography Group set out to document this by visiting vineyards around the state with the goal of educating and informing fellow Texans as to the different facilities, establishments, wines, and the impact of the wine making industry in Texas. The exhibition highlights images from the growing region with the hopes of raising awareness of Texas as a force in wine making.
Join photographers from the Texas Documentary Photography Group on Friday night, June 4th 6-8 pm for an opening reception and exhibition celebrating wine making in Texas. Called Stomp That Grape! the event will be hosted in the galleries of Salado Wine Seller, 841 North Main Street, Salado, TX 76571 and will include work by photographers:
BJ Smiley Goins
Chricel E. Portela
The exhibition will continue through July. For more information call 254-947-8011.
