When the Spanish missionaries arrived in Texas in the 1600's, they began cultivating Lenoir or Black Spanish grapes for sacramental wine. Today, Lenoir grapes are considered to be one of the oldest growing varietals in Texas outside of native wide vines. Texas Torte is made in honor of those who settle here and make Texas home.
