The Cross Timbers Region of Texas encompasses approximately 26,000 square miles in North and Central Texas. Early travelers through North Texas coined the name "Cross Timbers" by their repeated crossings of this timbered area, which besides being heavily grown with old oak trees, was thick with an almost impenetrable undergrowth of briars and other thorny bushes. Creek beds were lined with native Mustang grapes, many of which survive today. Made up of a mix of prairie, savanna, and woodland, it forms part of the boundary between the more heavily forested eastern part of the country and the almost treeless Great Plains, and also marks the western habitat limit of many mammals and insects.
An association for Texas Grape Farmers & Wine Crafters in the Cross Timbers Eco Region of Texas. This organization was developed for those hard working grape farmers and wine makers that all share similar challenges in growing conditions and product marketing in our region of Texas.
