CapRock Winery located in Lubbock, Texas, was recently sold in January, 2015. The new owners are the English family of John English with his parents Tommy and Jana English. The English family has their roots in West Texas and are prepared to make CapRock Winery a big time winery again.
The winery has been under renovation as the plans for the winery are to turn it into a premiere event center in Lubbock. The Facebook page has already changed names to the CapRock Winery Event Center. A new bridal suite room is being built in addition to new elevated patios that look over the vineyard. Concerts have already been held during the renovation and more events are planned.
Mike Sipowicz will be the head winemaker at CapRock Winery. Mike has had a history with CapRock winery since he was an intern at CapRock in the 1990s at the age of 18. The winery plans on making wines from 95% of the grapes grown in the area, which means from the High Plains. Eight new varieties of wines based on sweet wines are expected to be debuted this summer.
I will have more information soon as I plan to meet John English, Marketing & Sales Director of CapRock Winery, personally in a couple weeks.
