Jewellery Store
“Jewels of the Forest Texas Wine Shop and Acai Wine Winery is the newest jewel in Deep East Texas' majestic forest. Texas Wine Shop now offers weekly dinner specials such as fish or shrimp tacos, tomato or shrimp bruschetta, warm Brie and fruit bruschetta, bisque, as well as specialty meat and cheese trays. Getting hot outside, then cool off with a Frozen Winearita or non-alcoholic frozen ADD-itude. We proudly serve East Texas with wines from our family's locally grown grapes, wine jelly, great foods, and a gift shop that features items for hard-to-shop for friends and family. ​Have a glass of wine at the bar, private table, or outdoor deck and unwind from the day with friends. ”
