Partnership Spotlight: Becker Vineyards

 

The Texas Hill Country is becoming well known for the incredible wineries producing flavorful (and many award-winning) wines. Without a doubt, one of the most impressive and popular is Becker Vineyards – also one of our most valued partners at Delysia Chocolatier.

The relationship with Becker Vineyards kick started our award-winning Wine Truffle Collection and has continued to be one of the most popular truffle collections throughout the last five years.

The vineyard produces both red and white varietals, using Texas grown grapes. My favorite that I sampled this past year (while on wine tour) was the 2013 Prairie Rotie, which recently was awarded the bronze metal in the 2014 International San Francisco Wine Competition. No surprise here on why this was a favorite of mine; this red Rhone style blend has a finish that hints of coffee and chocolate!

The owners, Dr. Becker and his wife, have maintained the old world feel of the original buildings while staying true to the Texas aesthetic with limestone buildings and gorgeous wildflowers resting on 46 acres of land. With this beautiful piece of land, Becker Vineyards is also known for their memorable event and wedding space. One of the most scenic ceremony locations is their ‘Wedding Tree’ and couples adore their stunning reception venue inside the Lavender Haus Reception Hall. I must also mention that Becker Vineyards grows acres of lavender. Simply walking by these fields produces an almost magical sense of calmness. We even use their lavender in our Texas Truffle Collection that is combined with prickly pear and honey.

It is an honor for Delysia Chocolatier to continuing working with Becker Vineyards in producing our award-winning Wine Truffle Collection featuring their cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and port.

We encourage you to take an afternoon to visit their tasting room, grab a glass of wine, purchase our Wine Truffle Collection available in their tasting room, and sit on their beautiful patio soaking in the Texas Hill Country.
