Discover what made Fay J. Durrant create a custom wine label in Texarkana, TX

When Fay J. Durrant bought his first bag-making machine in the '80s, he knew he had stumbled onto something special, that was small quantity printed paper bags. As he learned more about the wine business, he made it his mission to create custom label wine, where a case could have four different varietals. After discovering the lack of wineries in the area, Fay J. decided to fill a niche of custom label wine.

Today, Fay J. continues to sell custom wine cases and support the Texarkana, TX community. To find out more about Fay J Winery and our commitment to creating good wine, reach out to us today. We're always happy to answer your questions.
