Sunshine upon our Antique Wine-Press at Silver Star Winery of Texas.

Within days of the purchase of our farm, a phone call came to us from a dear friend in Dallas.  She is the major buyer for all the fine wines that a chain of liquor stores imports to its outlets across the United States.  She has been with the company close to thirty years. 

She was very excited in her call.  It seems while cleaning out an old warehouse, a very old antique wine-press was found.  It is estimated that the press is over a hundred years old.  The company was getting ready to take it to the dump.  We gladly accepted taking it as a free gift.  It took a forklift to place it in a pick-up truck and bring it to our new farm in Eustace, Texas. 

This fine lady of a wine-press will become the center of displays for our future wine tasting room at Silver Star Winery of Texas.  A fitting gift for a dream that will soon unfold in beautiful East Texas.
