I realize a lot of states produce wine, but in the past 5 years it seems wines from The Lone Star State have made leaps and bounds.
Also, I'd like to make one recommendation -- Becker Vineyards Viognier. This wine blew me away. I have no affiliation with the vineyard (too bad, huh!) but I am proud to live near a vineyard that can make magic with this grape.
I guess this leads me to my second question. Do you think Viognier is an up and comer?

TX has some nice stuff. Viognier is a special thing, but not an up and comer because it is hard to grow so it will never be something you see in quantity. I like Becker's reds, too.
Most other than west coast wine states have limitations on water availability, and Texas faces that. But let's hope all 50 power on!
