We make old-fashioned type wines. If you like the taste of a good homemade wine, you will enjoy our wines. Currently, we have available 14 flavors with more to come this fall. We have a tasting room with a comfortable couch and two tables and a tasting bar. Also, there is a large covered porch with a view of the vineyard and rose arbor. We have a small vineyard where we grow blackberries and muscadine grapes. A second coverd patio was recently added that makes our total seating for about 50 people.
When you come visit us, you can taste the wines for a small $4.00 charge per person. If you like one of them, you can purchase a glass for $5.99. If you have a crowd, you might want to buy a chilled or unchilled bottle and enjoy it there, we will provide you with a corkscrew and glasses to drink.
In addition to wine, we also offer Wine-A-Rita's (frozen drink made with wine) which is $5.99 a glass. There is also sodas, water, snacks, and sandwiches you may purchase as well. For the holidays we may also offer apple cider, hot chocolate, or mulled wine.
We now offer a small selection of wine specialty drinks we have come to find quite tasty. This winter we will offer Gluvine. It is a hot, spiced wine made with our mixed berry wine, Summer Daze, and our wassail mix. Perfect for those chilly winter nights!
Our wines are sweet and potent made the old fashioned way.
We use 100% real fruit, 90% of which comes from local East Texas farmers.
Our thoughts on what makes great wine...
We only make wine we enjoy, if it doesn't taste good, what's the point?
We do not use fruit extract, artificial flavors, or food coloring, we use fruit plain and simple....
We hope you will like our simple wines, made to be enjoyed, not set in a rack for 20 years.
