Vineyard hires new winemaker
4R Ranch Vineyards & Winery in Muenster recently introduced Anthony Mosley as its new winemaker.
“Anthony Mosley is known throughout the Texas wine industry as the winemaker’s winemaker,” vineyard co-owner Walt Roper said in a press release. Mosley was most recently working at a custom crush facility in the Texas Panhandle, according to the release. He was also senior winemaker at Caprock Winery/English-Newsom Cellars, winemaker at Landry Vineyards and winemaker at Homestead Winery.
Mosley follows in the footsteps of 4R’s inaugural winemaker Willem Johnson, who leaves 4R Ranch to fulfill his lifelong dream of making his own wine at his own facility. Roper extended his congratulations to Johnson and wished him success.
4R Ranch Vineyards & Winery will host a meet-the-winemaker evening event for Anthony Mosley on Saturday, March 7, at the 4R WindShed Tasting Room. For more information about the winery, visit 4Rwines.com.
