As the lanes on Highway 290 narrow from four to two, you pay less attention to the radio and more to the rolling green landscape of Bluebonnet Country. Before you know it, you’re in the middle of the Brazos Valley, a quaint area of Texas that often gets lost in the shuffle between the high energy and soaring rush of Houston and Austin.
But it’s here, among the wildflowers, railroad tracks, and blinking yellow stoplights that you can reconnect with the world. You’ll also be surprised to learn that the Brazos Valley Texas houses a Texas wine scene with unbelievable depth and variety. It doesn’t pretend to be Napa because it doesn’t have to be.
