REDWINE, TEXAS. Redwine is located in southeastern Lynn County at the intersection of Farm roads 1054 and 3332, three miles northwest of Stewart Lake on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos. It receives mail from Tahoka. The farming community was named for M. M. Redwine, a Confederate veteran and native of Georgia, who filed on land and settled with his family on a ranch southeast of Tahoka in 1903. Redwine donated land for a school, and in 1913 he and his family moved to Tahoka. As late as 1948 Redwine had a church, a school, and a population of ten; no population figures for Redwine were available in 1990. A cemetery remains at the site.
