Siboney Cellars is currently co-located with Hawk’s Shadow Winery in Dripping Springs, Texas. An announcement has been made that they will be building a full production winery, tasting room and vineyards on a 52-acre lot adjacent to the west of Lewis Wines on a 1,600 foot frontage on U.S. 290. Those who may be familiar with the area are aware of the high limestone plateau overlooking Lewis Wines’ production building.
“Barbara and I have searched for the perfect location to build a new winery in the Hill Country, and this elevated, terraced limestone plateau site is ideal,” said Miguel Lecuona, co-owner of Siboney Cellars. “Life is animated by the pursuit of dreams, and this dream would not be possible if we had not met Bill and Mary Anne Waldrip. We are thrilled to announce our partnership and welcome the Waldrips to the Texas wine industry.”
The plateau will offer incredible views of the Texas Hill Country and the site will also allow a location for a vineyard. The winery also announced a new partnership featuring current owners Miguel and Barbara Lecuona with new owners Bill and Mary Anne Waldrip.
“We met the Lecuonas four years ago at a wine journalism event held at Boot Ranch,” said Mary Anne Waldrip, co-owner of Siboney Cellars. “After traveling together to wineries in Texas and Napa, and sharing in Barbara’s first vintage wines, we realized this mutual passion could also unlock a new life journey for us. We are thrilled to work with the Lecuonas, develop this site for Siboney Cellars, and welcome the world to a new, wonderful winery in the Texas Hill Country.”
Siboney Cellars will continue to produce and sell wine as an Alternating Proprietorship G Permit Winery at Hawks Shadow Winery in Dripping Springs through 2019.
“We cherish the relationship we have with our friends at Hawk’s Shadow Winery who for three years have helped us get our winery started and generously shared their tasting room and production facilities in Dripping Springs,” said Barbara Lecuona, winemaker and co-owner of Siboney Cellars. “Doug Reed and the family at Hawks Shadow have taught us so much. We will work hard to make them proud as we develop this new partnership on Wine Road 290.”
Siboney Cellars plans to continue its devotion to making 100% Texas wines. The winery is expected to open at the new location in 2020.
