Can you share any fun facts about this particular wine?
The Bingham family has been farming for over five generations and is one of the largest grape growers in the region (over 200 acres). When the family first homesteaded in Texas they lived in a dugout trench, that is how this wine got its name. The Binghams also grow cotton and peanuts.
