New Release–2012 Chardonnay

We’re so excited about our first batch of chardonnay from our own vineyard that we’ve rushed it into the bottle to make it available to you.  This is unfiltered, so it looks a bit cloudy, but we think you’ll enjoy it.  We’ll have it open for tasting during “Uncorked” […]


New Release–Diamond Back

It’s finally here!  These grapes were harvested AUG 2009.  It is a blend of grapes from Central Texas including our 2009 Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Vanilla notes and hints of raisins.


New Release–Rootin’ Tootin’

Rootin’ Tootin’ 2011 is now available for sale! …only 5 cases made..!  This is a sweet red wine made from the sangiovese grapes grown in our vineyard in Salado.  It is light & fruity a touch tart and hopefully this year it won’t re-ferment in the bottle (although some of you loved that bubbly effect).
