We are sourcing our grapes from the regions which have strong reputations for producing excellent wines as evidenced by our current portfolio of wines from Texas and California.
Blanc du Bois is a hybrid white grape varietal that has found a home in Texas. We express our Blanc du Bois as a dry-style wine with distinctive floral notes and tastes of rich tropical fruit, apricot, and citrus on the finish. Our Blanc du Bois grapes come from Palacios Vineyards in between Brenham and Chappell Hill.
Chalk Hill is defined by its warm climate and volcanic white ash that characterize its soils and give it its name. Our Chardonnay reflects that warmth and the moderating evening coolness that allows this wine to fully develop and express itself with perfume nose and hints of citrus, green apple, and pear. We age our Chardonnay sur lie (on light lees) in French Oak barrels for complexity, structure and smooth overall mouthfeel.
Malvasia Bianca is an aromatic white grape, historically grown in the Mediterranean region, that we have found grows well in the Texas High Plains. We source our fruit from Bingham Family Vineyards in Meadow, Texas. Our Malvasia Bianca has a wonderful nose, full of rose and citrus blossom, with fresh melon and ruby grapefruit on the palate. This wine is enjoyable in its own or with light seafood and salads.
Our Sauvignon Blanc comes to us from Paka Vineyards in the Texas High Plains. It was a good year for Sauvignon Blanc in the High Plains with moderate temperatures producing a wine with firm acidity and minerality. With lemongrass aroma and distinct citrus notes, our Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with seafood and poultry or just perfectly with quiet sipping.
Trebbiano is an Italian white grape that is one of the most widely planted varietals in the world. We source our grapes from Bingham Family Vineyards in Meadow, Texas. Our Trebbiano has a balanced green grape and earthy nose and is light on the palate with hints of green apple and Bosque pear. The wine is enjoyable on its own or with salads and light seafood.
Viognier is a Rhone varietal that has found a home in the Texas High Plains and especially Bingham Family Vineyards in Meadow, Texas. Our Viognier is a full-bodied white wine with distinctive floral aromas reminiscent of jasmine, honeysuckle, and a hint of vanilla. The palate is lush with rich tastes of pear and melon.
We use the saignée (from the French word for “bleeding”) method to produce our Rosé using both Sangiovese and Mourvedre grapes from Bingham Family Vineyards in the Texas High Plains. After soaking on the skins, juice is removed and fermented separately, yielding a rosé-style wine with tart cherry, strawberry, and earthy notes.
