Production: < 1,000

In 2005, over 400 Blanc de Bois and Black Spanish grape plants were planted by friends and family on one acre of this 20 acre tract in Baytown, Texas.

Blanc Du Bois is somewhat of a new variety, in that it has shown successful growth in the Texas Coastal Plains. The fruit is a fully ripe yellow/gold grape that can be made into a charming Alsace style dry wine with a slight Muscat aroma. It blends well with Vitis vinifera wine varieties such as Chenin Blanc, Muscat Canelli, or Riesling, to produce an outstanding off dry wine with pleasing charm.

Our Black Spanish grape has been established as the leading red wine variety since 1883 by Val Verde Winery in Del Rio, Texas. The fruit is a dark red grape that is excellent for making Port wine; however, recent success is encouraging for the production of dry wine.

David and Lena Yepez, along with daughters, Savannah and Chloe dream of creating a winery and vineyard for all to enjoy. Family support from parents, Martin and Ofelia Yepez has been crucial for the upkeep and beautification of this 20 acre tract.

Our Texas Winery offers tastings’ and indoor/outdoor family seating nestled between the two vineyards. We offer weekend entertainment, Summer Concerts on Thursdays, festivals, wedding and special venue options, picnic area, covered pavillion, a playground for kids and a tranquil environment for adults to relax.

This family environment will attract beginner and connoisseur wine lovers of all ages. Experience Texas wine at it’s best.
