“We are extremely proud of the wines we’ve created for our consumers,” says Rowdy Bolen, co-owner of Trilogy Cellars. “We are honored to have won numerous medals at the Texas International Wine Competition, San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and now at TEXSOM. The Trilogy family is constantly pushing forward to create premium wines grown from our vineyards here on the Texas High Plains.”
Trilogy Cellars is the joining of three families who grow wine grapes in Hockley County, just west of Lubbock. The Bolen, Hill & Newsom families all have separate vineyards and joined together to start a winery tasting room in Levelland, Texas in November 2016. The winery serves 8 different wines by the bottle or by the glass and has several lite hors d’ouvres food items available for purchase. Trilogy Cellars is located on the square at 618 Ave H in Levelland and is open 7 days a week. You can also purchase wine online at www.trilogycellars.com.
