Work Horse

The Austin Winery

Work Horse - Bordeaux Blend of 67% Petit Verdot, 25% Malbec, and 8% Merlot, High Plains. Native ferment. 13.8% alcohol. 191 cases.


Work Horse is our OG Texas wine, going back to 2014. Mediterranean varieties pre-dominate in Texas but Bordeaux varieities shine in some vineyards. Classic flavors and aromas of black currant, cracked pepper, eucalyptus and mint, and spiced cherry come through with every sip.

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