Industry now contributes nearly $2B to economy
LAGO VISTA, Texas (KXAN) – Despite the drought, winemakers in the Texas Hill Country say they’re having a great harvest this summer as they continue producing more wine than ever before.
August is prime harvest time at the Flat Creek Estate outside Lago Vista as 30 staffers and volunteers diligently clip grapes one handful at a time.
“I love doing this,” said Dee Werjte. “I love wine and now seeing how it’s the effort goes into making the wine, I think I appreciate it even more.”
During peak time, around four tons of grapes will be harvested each day. By early October the number will add up to about 100 tons of grapes.
