Texas Wine and Trail Magazine introduces our mobile app dedicated to Texas wine enjoyment and tourism for the State of Texas! We know you enjoy Texas wine or you wouldn’t be here! We want to give you a direct connection to wineries across the state.
The Texas Wine and Trail Travel App is a natural extension of Texas Wine and Trail Magazine. This app places content directly in the hands of wine enthusiasts, allowing you to enhance your Texas wine experience while out on winery visits, planning wine tours, or looking to learn more about Texas wines in general. It also provides Texas wineries and other businesses the opportunity to engage directly with Texas wine drinkers offering them discounts, event tickets, wine release dates and location assistance.
“We’re seeing a dramatic shift in the attitude toward wine, not just in Texas, but across the US there is a growing movement to drink regional and even local,” said Leanne Holley, Editor of Texas Wine and Trail Magazine. The pioneer spirit in America has been rekindled as well. Wine drinkers are really striking out on their own in search of new wine destinations and the Texas Hill Country in particular now ranks 2nd behind Napa Valley. “We want to make discovering Texas wine as fun and easy as possible, so this app will allow users to find local wineries, buy Texas wines directly from their phone, or share their experience and reviews with others. Texas already has a $1.8 Billion dollar wine economy, and we’re just warming up.”

Texas Wine and Trail has discovered that about half of our daily views are from wine enthusiasts using the magazine’s online directories, driving maps, and event calendar. “The directory usage is a testament not only to the growing interest in Texas wine but to the success of this site, so we’re very happy to provide that for free and without subscription. We do not intend to leave any Texas winery off the app because we feel it would be a disservice to Texas wine enthusiasts as well as the industry which we strive to promote as a whole. Creating this app was the logical next step to give Texas wine consumers the tools of discovery that they need.” Leanne Holley, Editor – Texas Wine and Trail Magazine

“I LOVE THIS APP!! This is more like 12 apps in one! I thought I was getting a travel app to help my wife and I find Texas wineries easier, but this is so much more. Very well designed, easy to navigate through all the functions. I can’t go into how much there is for a Texas wine drinker in this single app. Maybe someone in another review will. Thank you!” by Texas Dr. Dad
