"We work like blue blazes," said Cord Switzer, chief executive officer of Fredericksburg Winery."We're open seven days a week, except for Christmas and a few other major holidays.And during harvesting and processing we sometimes work 24 hours straight."
Switzer, whose winery produces about 7,000 cases per year, added that one of the industry's main challenges is that it is one of the most regulated in the country.
"We have to get a variety of permits just to produce and sell our wine," he said.

said Cord Switzer, the boisterous owner of Fredericksburg Winery and legislative co-chair for the Texas Wine & Grape Growers Association. He points to the industry's $1.7 billion economic impact in 2009, a 26 percent increase from two years earlier. Wine and grape producers paid $78.5 million in state and local taxes in '09, up from $39 million in 2005, when the state started providing funding.
"We feel we are part of the solution in that we are the small businesses that the governor says are important to Texas," Switzer said.

Cord Switzer, CEO of Fredericksburg Winery, who attended the opening of the new facility, said mitigating the effects of Pierce's disease was "vital to the economic security of the industry."
Switzer, who produces about 7,000 cases of wine annually from wine-grapes bought from eight area vineyards, said support for new facility was key to the industry's future.
"This really is a multiple-state, multiple-industry issue," Switzer said. "And we need to not only have a facility like this, but we need to get funding in place to address this disease on a national level."
Switzer will travel to Washington, D.C. later this month as the Texas wine industry representative on a team discussing funding for Piece's disease with U.S. Department of Agriculture officials and congressional appropriators.
"We have state-related legislation in place to address the issue, but now we need national funding for efforts related to Piece's disease," he said. "And this year, for the first time, Texas has a place at the table during those discussions."
Switzer said mitigating the disease would also benefit agri-tourism stemming from vineyard and winery tours and help the economy of multiple communities in wine-producing areas of the U.S.
