Texas High Plains

General Description

The Texas High Plains is the second largest AVA in Texas and third largest in the U.S. with a total area of approximately 8 million acres. It rises above the Caprock Escarpment to an elevation between 3,000-4,000 ft, in west Texas. The lofty elevation combined with low annual precipitation creates a favorable climate with relatively cool night temperatures during fruit ripening.
