American Pinot Grigio
Grapes sourced from:
Built by Count Telferner's Italian laborers, the New York, Texas, and Mexican railroad actually ran from Victoria to Rosenburg. Trains stopped for the first time in Edna in 1882 and opened the Gulf Coast to commerce. Informally known as the Macaroni Line for its workers, Macaroni Station became Edna, the new county seat of Jackson County.
Most of the Lombardy workers remained in the area to help populate the new railroad towns, two named after the count's female relatives - Edna and Louise. With its Italian American heritage, the Pinot Grigio wine honors this colorful Gulf Coast and Jackson County heritage.
