Bending Branch Winery

Next World Wines



Bending Branch Winery was founded in 2009 by Robert W. Young, M.D., his wife Brenda, and their daughter, Alison. Bending Branch Winery marries Old World winemaking with modern science, using Cryo-Maceration and Thermoflash fermentation to make what Dr. Bob refers to as “Next World Wines.” Dr. Bob uses a combination of whole-berry, or carbonic maceration, along with these innovative techniques to extract the best qualities from grapes – color, flavor, and tannins – to make bold, but balanced red wines. Bending Branch is best known for Tannat, a grape variety that exceeds expectations in our Texas terroir. We’ve also had great success experimenting with Charbono, Sagrantino, and Souzão, along with perennial favorites Tempranillo, Malbec, and Mourvèdre.
