Proud of East Texas: Pelle Legna

Proud of East Texas: Pelle Legna

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Dawn Leatherwood had always loved wine and how it brought people together, so without any previous experience as a vitner, she established Pelle Legna (that's italian for "Leatherwood") and planted her first crop of grapevines in 2007.

In 2010, she built her winery, and in 2013, her first wine officially made it to market. The wine was such a hit, the winery sold out its' stock in a months time.

Leatherwood admits the wine business is hard work and takes a passion for wine, but she also admits it's exciting to be part of the state of Texas's fast growing wine industry.
