Set amidst the beautiful rolling hills of Central Texas is a most pristine piece of land, perfect for growing grapes and making wine. Flat Creek Estate is nestled on this 80 acres, happily proving for a decade of years that quality Texas grapes produce quality Texas wines.
The development of Flat Creek Estate began in 1998 when Rick and Madelyn Naber purchased the premier Hill Country property. The Nabers immediately fell in love with the gentle slopes of this cirque of sandy loam around the creek. Named for Flat Creek, which runs from just north of the property and ends in Lake Travis, the Estate is surrounded by picturesque beauty.
Rick and Madelyn, the ever-present owners, came from agricultural backgrounds in Iowa and saw this opportunity as the start of an exciting new venture. Rick’s expertise and energy set the pace for all involved as his inertia keeps the Flat Creek world spinning whether understanding the quirks of TABC codes or trouble-shooting daily challenges. Madelyn is truly a “Woman Gone Wine. Her commitment and delight in the evolution of Flat Creek Estate shows in her enthusiasm and initiative in many aspects of the business. With an earlier-than-anticipated retirement so they could live on the North Shore of Lake Travis, their energy was initially directed toward wonderful, long summers entertaining nephews and nieces while enjoying their "Harley Habit." The scooters are now tucked away! Although they came into the business in a “sideways” manner, the Naber’s passion is obvious to all who visit the Estate.
Trooper, the big dog, plays a big part in the Flat Creek family. He's involved in every aspect of the operation alongside Rick & Madelyn. Trooper spent endless hours in the vineyards during plantings. He helps select harvest dates by sampling grapes as harvest nears and is most noted as being the 'official greeter' as you arrive. Trooper especially enjoys ending the day overlooking his vineyards from the Event Center porch where Rick & Madelyn frequently join him.
