Work Horse

The Austin Winery

Work Horse is our OG Texas wine, going back to 2014. Spiced dark fruit and plum flavors lead you into heavy body, velvety tannin, and leather, graphite, and mesquite finishing notes. 

Both grape varieties (Merlot and Petit Verdot) in this vintage are grown side-by-side in a single Texas High Plains vineyard, Canted County Vineyard just outside Lamesa. The owners live on-site and manage their estate full-time.

The artwork is a Goya study of a donkey reading a book - a gesture suggesting well-deserved relaxation for our hard-working, understated friends.

Work Horse has won multiple awards, including Bronze at TexSom, Reserve Class Champion at Houston Livestock & Rodeo International Wine Competition.
