St. Rose Vineyard and Winery is located in Pittsburg. It was opened in 2005 by Rosemary Guerra and the winery was originally called Guerra Vineyard and Winery. Unfortunately Ms. Guerra passed away and her daughter Ann Guerra Arra now runs the winery along with her husband Mark Arra. They renamed the winery to St. Rose Vineyard and Winery in memory of Rosemary in 2007.
When we arrived at St. Rose Vineyard and Winery, we drove across a grass field and parked in front of the small building which holds the tasting room. The small building was actually a sweet potato smokehouse built 100 years ago.
There was one couple in the tasting room when we arrived, and they made room for us at the tasting bar so we could sit down.
Judy was the pourer and she admitted she was a bossy lady, which she indeed was. We only wanted to try white wines since we were in a hurry to make a tour at the next winery, but she pretty much demanded we try all their wines. The good thing is there is no tasting fee.
All of St. Rose’s wines are made with Muscadine grapes grown in their own vineyard. Hence they make 100% Texas wine. All of their wines are less than $10 a bottle.
While we were sitting at the tasting bar, Judy poured the wines from the bottle. There is food available to clear your palate.
We did end up tasting all their wines, and fortunately with a little quick driving, we made the tour at the next winery.
There is a small gift shop in the tasting room. St. Rose Vineyard and Winery is on the Piney Woods Wine Trail.
