Llano Estacado Winery is a winery located in Lubbock, Texas. It is one of the oldest wineries in Texas.[1]

History[edit]

In 1976, Llano Estacado Winery was established in southeast Lubbock County, Texas, while it was still a dry county.[2] The state legislature passed a bill two years later permitting wine production in dry counties.[2] The winery planted its first vineyard in 1978.[3]
