Since our inception, The Lab Pros,has been invested in improving quality control and providing knowledgeable services to all wineries.
The Lab Pros was established in Monterey County, California after winning the 2017 Monterey Bay Startup Challenge, a competition against 94 other startup businesses. The Lab Pros gained local recognition and quickly grew to a successful business in servicing over 50 wineries throughout the Central Coast of California.
The Lab Pros moved to the Texas Hill Country in 2019 with the intention of instituting a local method for Texas wineries to receive faster analysis results and create a better environment for quality control. Our goal is help bring recognition to the competitive and diverse wines being produced throughout the state of Texas.
