Experienced Texas winemaker Anthony Mosley
joins North Texas winery

Dallas, Texas - 4R Ranch Vineyards & Winery, located in Muenster, Texas, announces Anthony Mosley as its new winemaker.

“Anthony Mosley is known throughout the Texas wine industry as the winemaker’s winemaker.  Most recently employed at a custom crush facility in the Texas Panhandle, he has provided sage advice and consulting to many Texas wineries and helped them win numerous awards,” remarked Walt Roper, co-owner.  “Anthony is eager to focus his considerable talents on one brand, and looks forward to make the North Texas Hill Country his home.   4R Ranch is delighted to team up with this legendary Texas wineslinger.”

Mosley, whose experience also includes senior winemaker at Caprock Winery/English-Newsom Cellars, winemaker at Landry Vineyards and winemaker at Homestead Winery, is looking forward to partnering with the Roper family at their three-year old award-winning winery.

“4R has a great facility, state of the art equipment, and beautiful vineyards; and it is really a unique piece of property,” said Mosley.  “I am excited to call 4R my home and to finally be able to claim credit for my own double gold and best-of class awards for wines that I have crafted.  I’m particularly looking forward to putting my stamp on the Tempranillo and Syrah programs.”

Mosley follows in the footsteps of 4R’s inaugural winemaker Willem Johnson, who leaves 4R Ranch to fulfill his life-long dream of making his own wine at his own facility.

“4R Ranch congratulates Willem Johnson on his soon-to-be-realized project and we all wish him much success in his next chapter,” added Roper.

4R Ranch Vineyards & Winery will host a meet-the winemaker evening event for Anthony Mosley on Saturday, March 7, 2020 at the 4R WindShed Tasting Room.  Details to follow on www.4rwines.com.
