Bending Branch is best known for Tannat, a grape variety that exceeds expectations in the Texas terroir. They have also had great success experimenting with Charbono, Sagrantino, and Souzão, along with perennial favorites Tempranillo, Malbec, and Mourvèdre.

Bending Branch Winery was founded in 2009 by Robert W. Young, M.D., his wife Brenda, and their daughter, Alison. Bending Branch Winery marries Old World winemaking with modern science, using Cryo-Maceration and Thermoflash fermentation to make what Dr. Bob refers to as "Next World Wines." Dr. Bob uses a combination of whole-berry, or carbonic maceration, along with these innovative techniques to extract the best qualities from grapes – color, flavor, and tannins – to make bold, but balanced red wines.

At Branch on High in downtown Comfort, you can enjoy our full range of Bending Branch wines as well as taste award-winning wines from Ursa Vineyards, our winery in the Sierra Foothills of California. 

Ursa Vineyards is the vision of husband and wife operation-team, Greg Stokes and Deborah Elissagaray. ​Both started their winemaking careers in the Santa Cruz Mountains and met while a part of the winemaking team at David Bruce Winery. Greg is a highly regarded viticulturist and a consultant for numerous vineyards in California and other states. Deborah grew up spending her summers visiting family in a French Pyrénées Mountain town where she gained an appreciation for her Basque heritage. The region inspired work on a Basque blend that makes predominant use of the Tannat grape. The couple fell in love with the varietal and have been making wines with it ever since.
