• CORDIER E<TATES, INC. STE. GENEVIEVE Wi es December 15, 1988 The Honorable William Clements Governor of the State of Texas P.O. Box 1228 Austin, TX 78711 Dear Sir: It was a pleasure and a privilege to see you again before your trip to Spain. I appreciate your interest in our Texas wine industry; as Secretary of the Texas Wine council, I can say that our profession is trying (with dedication and committment) to fight a difficult battle to establish itself in Texas, the United States, and overseas. We are very grateful that you have declared October "Month of the Wine." We promote our Texas products and image with pride and a sense of responsibility to a market which is beginning to recognize our efforts and originality. Ste. Genevieve is proud to be a part of this drive, and I am personally committed to Texas in many ways. Our operation is based on a conjunction of several factors: long-term investment from the University of Texas System; "state of the art" technology allied to "traditional skills"; opening of a new segment for the Texas economy. I hope that in the course of one of your visits to the Midland-Odessa area you will accept our invitation to visit the winery and the vineyard located in Pecos County on the University of Texas lands; between March and August would be a great time as the vegetation is growing beautifully at this time of year. This is a two-hour tour which I believe you will enjoy, and we would be greatly honored by your presence. Waiting for the honor and pleasure of your visit. 07, Winery P.O. Box 697 Fort Stockton.
