Good wine, good friends

By Daniel Elizondo

Set back in the countryside of Sour Lake, a quaint winery with a wine tasting bar could be found complete with the ambience of Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra playing in the background.

Port Arthur native Shawn Bruno is quite proud of his small metropolis found in Hardin County and he should be.

After a year of lobbying with the Texas Legislature, Bruno is happy to say the business he and his wife, Misha run, has become a jewel in  Texas by many wine lovers.

Bruno & George Winery in Sour Lake, has been in business for 15 years, and the popularity of its products are growing at a tremendous rate, thanks to the mind of Bruno.

“I didn't think it would bloom this fast,” Bruno said. “A lot of people just want a dry red or they want a dry white. My wines are for all the other people that don't want or need that. These berry wines have a charm of their own.”
