Ferris & Fletch Wine Co. is a winery located in Fredericksburg. The winery opened in 2021 and is owned by Rarig and Ellery Ross where Rarig is also the winemaker.
We visited the tasting room while we were in Fredericksburg and met Rarig Ross. We sat at one of the seating areas in the tasting room to do a tasting.
These are the wines that were available at the time of our visit:
- 2020 Happy Canyon Viognier
- 2020 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay
- 2020 Paso Robles Rosé
- 2019 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
- 2020 American Red Blend (Kimsey Syrah and Rio Vista Pinot Noir)
- 2020 Santa Ynez Valley Syrah
During the tasting, Rarig told how he started in the wine industry in 2009 while working at Gainey Vineyard in California. He started his own custom crush company, California Wine Company, in 2015.
Rarig and Ellery visited Fredericksburg in June of 2020 while visiting custom crush clients and family. They fell in love with the town and surrounding area and knew that they wanted to raise their children in Fredericksburg.
Rarig has already started working with a local winery and will be releasing his first Texas wine from this year’s harvest and that most likely will be a rosé. He will be using multiple facilities in the Hill Country to make his Texas wines and he is excited to continue that process.
