Jon's dad, Clinton McPherson, was a chemistry professor at Texas Tech University. And being a wine enthusiast, he was naturally interested in wine chemistry. He researched and experimented with various types of grapes that were being grown in the university's experimental vineyard. When the school plowed it under to make room for more buildings, Clinton started a vineyard of his own. As often happens with wine enthusiast turned wine professional, once you take the plunge there's no turning back. Clinton went on to start a full-fledged winery in 1976, in Lubbock, Texas, called Llano Estacado. He has since founded the Texas Grape Growers Association and been a driving force behind the growth of the Texas wine industry.
