Tucked away along the western edge of the Sam Houston National Forest is one of the more unique new wineries in Texas. They feature a Prickly Pear Cactus Wine. Yes, that’s right! After all, the prickly pear is the official cactus of Texas so why not make a wine from it? In addition, they also make a Hibiscus Flower Wine. If you are already a Hibiscus tea f…an, then this wine shouldn’t be that unusual for you. Don’t expect to find a chardonnay or cabernet here, but do expect to find some specialty wines that are a unique reflection of Texas and the creative spirit of the owner. In about a year, they will be releasing a cranberry wine which should be worth making another trip to taste.
