Live Above Salado Winery

 

2nd floor APARTMENT FOR RENT!

The Winery upstairs apartment is available now, and we have it reserved for you!  That’s right folks, you can live above Salado Winery and smell the fermentation!  This 1250 square foot apartment, refurbished in 2015 when it was filled it with brand new appliances, new counters, new sinks and  fixtures.  Check out the beautiful view of the sunset from your giant private deck.  This apartment has one very large master suite, cute office/guest alcove, and a bonus room. There’s ample storage space and built-ins and you only have to go down the stairs to sample local wine.

Water is included with the rent and our winery wi-fi is generally available.  The apartment is on the second floor, so you will have to climb stairs, but there is a washer and dryer included so no trips to the laundromat.

Oh, and the location!  Next door is the Salado Sculpture park.  Walk another block to the grocery store, library, post office and the famous Village of Salado shops filled with antiques, art and of course, don’t forget the yummy restaurants nearby.

Remember to ask us about wine discounts and the best parking spot for the annual TX Wine and Rogue Art Fest. We are located at 841 N. Main Street and can be reached at our business phone # 254.947.8011 if you would like to come by and take a look.

Small pets may be negotiable, deposit $900.  This apartment is listed on FB, apartments.com, zillow.com & craigslist.  Finally, we hear there are pretty nice downstairs neighbors. 🙂

Harvest 2016–UPDATED!

Here are the 2016 chardonnay and sangiovese pickin' people

Here are the 2016 chardonnay and sangiovese pickin’ people

The harvest season is already half over and our plans have changed some.  The chardonnay and the sangiovese was harvested July 30th.  The merlot harvest has been pushed back to August 13 and the Cabernet Sauvignon might be ready before Thanksgiving!

Here is the plan as of August 1, 2016.

How to Get There
The vineyard is at 21724 Hill Road, Salado, TX, 76571. Exit 279 off I-35 and we’re just a quarter-mile up Hill Road on the East side of I-35. The vineyard is on the right side of Hill Road. You’ll see the vines from the road!

What to Bring
We will start bright and early at 7 am and go until all the grapes are picked, usually before noon. Wear comfortable, cool clothing. You’ll want to bring a hat, sunscreen, bug spray, and lots of water to start with. We’ll provide everything else you need, including more cold water. If you have a favorite pair of pruners feel free to bring them, but we’ll have plenty for you. We recommend tennis shoes because sometimes there is stinging nettle or a hidden ant mound but you can wear sandals if you like.  Sometimes folks like to wear light cotton gloves to protect their manicure or help prevent wasp stings, but there are no thorns on grape vines. Harvest is family friendly, so feel free to bring the kiddos…Dino has been picking grapes since he was 1!

The After Party
After harvest in the morning, you can join us at the winery to watch grape processing. Our grapes will be de-stemmed and crushed using a machine then the chardonnay will be pressed and red grapes will be prepared for fermentation.

RSVP
If you’re coming, text your RSVP to 254.466.5813 or RSVP on the Facebook event pages (links below), and we’ll let you know if the plan changes.  Otherwise, see you there!

Art Opening Reception with Patty Thomas – October 10th

Patty Thomas - Antique Sign

It’s officially fall! Join us on Saturday, October 10th from 1pm – 7pm when Patty Thomas will be on hand to discuss her newest artworks.  She was selected for the next exhibition at the winery to showcase and celebrate Central Texas and the beauty of fall.

Ms. Thomas, a Temple resident, studied art at the Texas Schools of Fine Arts in Austin and graduated with a degree in fine arts from Abilene Christian University. She has owned a graphic design company, painted furniture and murals, and sold her paintings in galleries. Ms. Thomas loves to paint Central Texas landscapes that highlight big skies, winding roads, and beautiful views of our area. As she puts it, “Today we seem to be caught in such busy, every-minute-filled lifestyles. My paintings are intended to move us toward a calmer, less stressful pace for everyday living.” You can see her artwork at www.pattythomasfineart.com. 

The winery gallery will be filled with Ms. Thomas’s artwork, available for sale until the end of December. Of course, we’ll have plenty of wine open for tasting and savoring. We’ll also be debuting our newest release, the 2014 Big Bully. The 2014 vintage, a Tempranillo-Malbec blend, was grown in Temple and will be bottled earlier in the week.

Yes, we are OPEN Labor Day
