USDA-NASS, in collaboration with the Texas Wine Grape Growers Association, conducted the Grape Variety Inquiry for the 2017 production year. Variety data was collected from growers on acreage, production, and variety.

Texas has a long history of wine production. The sunny and dry climate of the major winemaking regions in the state have drawn a comparison to Portuguese wines.

The state is home to over 36 members of the Vitis grapevine family with fifteen being native to the state, more than any other region on earth. As of 2006, the state had over 3,200 acres (1,300 ha) planted with Vitis vinifera. The Texan wine industry is continuing its steady pace of expansion and has gained a reputation as an established wine growing region in the United States.
