If you have not had the opportunity to visit Kiepersol in east Texas, you are missing a great winery. Besides the winery, there is now a distillery with vodka, bourbon, and rum within walking distance of the winery tasting room, and both in view of one of their large vineyards. Also on the property are an excellent restaurant and a bed and breakfast.
Kiepersol has more businesses than this and one is in awe of everything that is present. Even more impressive is learning how founder Pierre de Wet came from South Africa with a few items and two young daughters. Pierre de Wet’s book called The Story of We chronicles his journey through the United States and finishes in Tyler, Texas to build an enterprise. The book is very easy reading and you will not be able to put it down. Even better, the book is autographed by Pierre de Wet.
Enter the raffle to win the autographed copy of the book. Good luck!
If you do not win the book, the book is available for purchase on Amazon. After reading the book, you will start making plans for your visit to Kiepersol.
