The Triple D Winery and Restaurant is located in Brownfield in the High Plains and is owned by Mary and Ty Wilmeth. The Triple D first planned to open in Brownfield because of Mary wanting to open a tasting room. They then saw the growing need for more restaurants. After permit issues in Brownfield, the planned restaurant became a winery and restaurant, solving both needs.
Once you enter the winery, the rustic country charm welcomes you with the eclectic décor and furnishings. As you are led to a table, you pass a gazebo where musical acts perform every Friday night. The restaurant is open every weekday for lunch, but Friday nights are special with the music and a special Friday night menu.
Every time I have visited The Triple D, it has been on a Friday night. Depending on what time you arrive, while you are gazing at the menu to decide what to eat, the live music may be playing in the background. The first question you will probably be asked is what you would like to drink. Since The Triple D is a winery, of course you want wine!
The Triple D offers a large selection of wines primarily made from grapes grown in the High Plains, but all Texas grapes. Along the way, the Wilmeths worked with Texas Custom Wine Works to create three wonderful wines:
- Mary’s Viognier 2017 (dry)
- Ty’s Viognier 2017 (sweet)
- Triple D Dolcetto 2016
Instead of me trying to explain the differences and tasting notes of the wines, it would be easier to read Gina’s excellent post about touring wineries in the High Plains, including The Triple D, where their wines are described. All wines are available by the glass or bottle. If you want just a tasting of The Triple D’s wines, they can do that too. As you will learn, Mary and Ty Wilmeth are very accommodating for whatever your needs may be.
Since I have only been to the restaurant on Friday nights for the limited menu, I have only heard great things about the weekday lunch menu, including incredible burgers and sandwiches. I know we enjoyed our Friday night meals, so you will surely want to make a point to visit The Triple D when you are in Brownfield.
