I found the winery in the country at the end of their long driveway. At the end of the driveway was the five-acre vineyard first planted in 2013 with the winery on the other side. They are still adding to the winery to enhance your winery experience. A patio area with fire pit and waterfall was being built in the rear of the winery at the time of my visit. A front patio already exists with chairs waiting for you to enjoy a glass of wine with view of the vineyard.
Inside the tasting room, there is a large L-shaped tasting bar followed by two seating areas. One has some comfy couches and chairs while the other has a fireplace with more comfy seating and a couple of tables and chairs.
I sat at the tasting bar to do my tasting. There was a tasting fee for the six wines which also includes your wine glass to take home. The tastings were poured using a measured pourer. Chocolate and crackers were available to cleanse my palate.
These are the wines that were available at the time of my visit:
- Persnickety (Cabernet Sauvignon) – dry
- Farmhouse White (Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat) – dry
- White Cranberry – sweet
- Lime in the Coconut – sweet
- Happy Puppy (watermelon) – sweet
- Pepper’s Pomegranate – sweet (named after the winery dog Pepper)
I met co-owner and winemaker Mary Timmons who told me about the wines. At the time of my visit, none of the wines were Texas wines. The rest of the Texas wines were coming from their estate vineyard, but they had just submitted the labels and were waiting for approval which was coming soon. Even though the wines were ready, they could not bottle them until they got the federal label approved. Wines at that point would include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, Valvin Muscat, Villard Blanc, and Lenoir.
While you are enjoying a glass of wine, food is available to enjoy including fruit and cheese, and cheese spread and crackers.
