A bit about Alamosa Wine Cellars' Texas wines, and why they’re so unique and exceptional: AWC grows and produces exclusively European style varietals and blends. No Cabernets. No Merlots. No Chardonnays.  You can get those anywhere.


Alamosa specializes in warm climate European varietals such as Sangiovese, Syrah, Tempranillo, Viognier, Grenache, Morvedre, and Verdelho.  As such, they produce wines that are both unique, and specialized.


As a specialized winery, Alamosa's production volumes are hundreds of cases, not thousands or tens of thousands. Alamosa is not a mass production winery, but rather focuses on high quality with a great big Texas helping of personal touch by Winemaker Jim Johnson and his wife Karen.   I hope each and every one of you enjoy these excellent wines.


Alamosa Wine Cellars was the very first Texas winery to grow, produce, and bottle a Tempranillo, and more recently in 2010 - the state's first 100% Graciano.


Once again winemaker Jim Johnson demonstrates that he doesn't run with crowd . . .
