Caprock Winery has announced a new partnership with Steve Newsom, who will now be the majority stakeholder in the company.

They're calling this one of the biggest announcements in the history of Texas wine.

"We are unveiling a game-changing revelation in how wine is made in the state of Texas."

Newsom says the English family, who owns the winery now, usually leases out the production facility side. But after numerous discussions with Newsom, since November 2017, they decided to partner up with him, not only in the production side, but for the whole business.

Newsom has 100 acres of vineyards in Hockley County, with locations in Ropes, Sundown and Levelland. Newsom sells his grapes to wineries all over the state and will now grow the grapes for Caprock Winery.

Newsom remains a partner in Trilogy Cellars.

Newsom is a cotton farmer, originally from Levelland.

He continues to farm cotton, but he planted his first vineyard in 2008 and has been growing grapes ever since.

He says with the beautiful Caprock Winery facility, the stellar winemaker Anthony Mosley, and these quality grapes, they will have an amazing product.

Caprock Winery has been around for 30 years, since 1988.
