Encircled by the majestic Texas desert where the Milky Way and Moon compete for dominance in the night sky, the modern domed structure of Bar Z Winery glows softly overlooking the Palo Duro Canyon. A depart from the natural landscape, but a compliment to it none the less.
Winemaker Monty Dixon has created a very cool place to escape from the extreme heat of the Texas high desert. A Texas local who decided to combine his fine aged wine, with a stylish modern winery, and great boot scootin’ entertainment. This magical combination is what makes Bar Z Winery in Canyon, Texas an amazing, although distant, attraction of the Texas wine scene.
He’s not trying to imitate Tuscany or Napa; Bar Z Winery is truly Texan and it is reflected in every element from the wine made with 100% Texas grapes, to the natural xeriscape. Architecture and design aside, Dixon’s main focus is on creating premium hand crafted wines that are enjoyed and the tasting experience memorable:
Bar Z Winery is open Tuesday through Sunday for tastings, while private tours are upon reservation. Enjoy an afternoon with friends on the patio, or host your entire Wedding reception at Bar Z Winery with a staff that is both knowledgeable and ready to entertain with the charm Texans are well known for.
