At the edge of Palo Duro Canyon, on the outskirts of Canyon, Texas you’ll find a hidden Panhandle gem in Bar Z Winery. Not to be confused with a vineyard, Bar Z works with Texas High Plains vineyard owners and takes their high-quality Texas grown grapes and makes them into award-winning, full-bodied red wines. Bar Z Winery prides itself on utilizing the unique Texas terroir to create a wine that expresses the hard work of the vineyard owners, the soil it was grown in, and the love of Texas shared by those who enjoy these unique wines.
Bar Z Winery combines art, science, and years of experience to create elegant wines. Owner, Monty Dixon’s passion and hard work go into every bottle making these entirely Texan wines contenders on the world stage. Bar Z Winery has competed against Napa Valley wines, French wines – often considered the greatest – yet their native Texan creations have taken home the gold.
Bar Z Winery continues to be one of the top spots in the Panhandle to enjoy a sunset or host an event. The setting is particularly unique with its sweeping views of the prairie paired with the deep crevasses of the canyon. “We don’t have our own landscaping-we left God’s landscaping alone,” Monte says.
