Beyond Wine: A Look at Bingham Family Vineyards and Farms’ Rich History in Meadow, Texas

The A-J team had a busy week covering a range of topics, including the world of wine and fine dining, as well as other business news. One of the most notable stories we covered was our visit to Bingham Family Vineyards and Bingham Family Farms just outside of Meadow. The family and staff shared the fascinating history behind the land, which has undergone many transformations over the years, from cotton to peanuts to wine production. We were particularly excited to learn about their new wine that has been launched at H-E-B in memory of Blake Eddie Bingham, with proceeds going towards supporting the Blake Eddie Scholarship for viticulture and enology students at Texas Tech University and Texas A&M. Stay tuned for an upcoming article where we delve deeper into the Bingham family’s history and its impact on the Texas wine industry.

Meanwhile, in other news this week, Chez Sami / Il Dolce Far Niente announced that they will be closing their Wolfforth location on June 15th, while their Lubbock location remains open. The Rollin’ Cones ice cream truck is set to open a storefront and drive-thru at the former Tom & Bingo’s BBQ location on 34th St. in August or September. And in honor of National Hamburger Day on May 28th, Twisted Root is offering $7 Classic Burgers all day long!

Looking ahead to next week, we are eagerly anticipating hearing updates from potential new businesses in the area. Thank you for your continued support of our publication and for reading our articles!
