Thought you all (or y'all, as they say here in Texas) might like to get a picture for what it's like to live out here on the plains of West Texas.  Last week I took a trip out to visit my friends at Bingham Family Vineyards and get a tour of their place.  It was so windy that I wasn't really able to record anything that would give any useful audio, but I did get to experience a nice West Texas dust storm.

The Binghams are producing a lot of grapes at their place, with over 130 acres of grapes being at some stage of development on their property this season.  They grow a number of varieties, including Tempranillo, Viognier, Mouvedre, Sangiovese, and Vermentino.  I am hoping to have an opportunity to make it out to see them again soon for some new planting that they are doing, and maybe I can come back with a little more video or photos.
