Texas High Plains

Featured on November 6, 2020

Where:  Fruit for this wine is sourced from the Texas High Plains AVA, where according to winemaker and owner Cheramie Law, 80%-85% of all Texas wine grapes are grown. 

Says Cheramie, “An interesting fact about our Riesling is that it saw 100F days, which when you think about Riesling you automatically think cold climate. This makes it fun to compare our ‘hot-weather’ Riesling to a ‘cold-weather’ Riesling.”



Who: Cheramie Law, a Marine Corps veteran who has spent six years becoming an expert in Texas wine, steadily pursued her dream of establishing a winery that highlights the state’s winegrowing potential.

“I think that one skill that I learned in the Marine Corps was to never give up, no matter what. Being a Black woman, first-generation in wine, with a wine brand from an up-and-coming wine region, I’ve experienced more adversaries than most but I don’t give up, I just press in harder knowing the other side of the pain far outweighs the current stage.”


“We are choosing varieties that people wouldn’t expect to be grown in Texas but, actually grow very well.  Our first wine is our 2019 Cheramie Wine Riesling. We will be bottling our 2020 Montepulciano Rosé and 2019 Rhône Valley White Blend on November 21st, and we have a 2020 Tinta Cão/ Touriga Nacional blend in the barrels. Not sure when we’ll see her…we are going to let her tell us when she is ready.

My goal in starting Cheramie Wine is to take Texas wine to the world. “
