4.0 Cellars Grape Harvest 2019

Those of you who have visited or even driven by 4.0 Cellars probably noticed grape vines growing near Hwy 290, in front of the three Logo tanks at the entrance to the tasting room and patio area. These are Black Spanish, or Lenoir, vines, a hybrid grape that grows well in the hot, more humid climates of Texas. The vines were planted in 2013 by folks from Lost Oak Winery, one of our partner/owners, and were intended to be a “show” vineyard, a garden really, so that visitors could see and appreciate grapevines.  Continue »

The 2018 Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association annual meeting was held last week (22,23,24-Feb-2018) in Irving (Los Colinas area), TX, at the Irving Convention Center. This was the largest TWGGA meeting ever, both in terms of attendees and exhibitors. These meetings represent, to me, at least, a wonderful Texas Wine Industry “Family Reunion,” one where you have a great time and get to drink a lot of good wine with the people who grew the grapes and made the wine. This year was no exception. However, there was one big difference for me as I was awarded the TWGGA Wine Press Award 2018. WOW!  Continue »

Our Tanks

Often we are asked about the three large, shiny stainless steel (SS) tanks sitting in front of 4.0 Cellars. Where did they come from? What are they used for? Are they wine tanks? Do they have wine stored in them? After a bit of research and a few phone calls, the story behind the tanks began to emerge, and I can now share it with you.  Continue »
