The goal for our Estate wines is to showcase a sense of place from each of our Estate Vineyard. Our estate vineyards are located in Fredericksburg, Hye and Pontotoc, Texas. "Terroir" is the concept that different regions or even smaller areas within a region have the potential to produce very different and distinct wines, even from the same grape based on local conditions of soil, microclimate, water, etc. Each of vineyard sites have unique soil and other terroir specific characteristics that make the wines unique expressions of the Texas Hill Country AVA.
Our hope is to produce unique world class and award winning wines grown and vinted right here in the Texas Hill Country. We also desire to contrast our Hill Country Estate wines with wines we make from fruit from other growing regions both here in Texas and elsewhere in the US. We can therefore offer our guest a wider perspective to understand how aspects of terroir affect the unique expression of each wine. This also gives us the opportunity to share unique world class wines that we have made with fruit from diverse growing regions that may not be well suited to grow in the Texas Hill Country. We believe that the world of wine is all about comparing and contrasting. Without comparisons, how are we to truly know and understand our own Estate Wines.
Our wines are handcrafted in small lots by our own owner and winemaker Dr. Michael Dickey in consultation with award winning winemaker Dr. Robert Young.
Our tasting room is always children and dog friendly.
There's much to taste and enjoy on the 290 Wine Trail. Be safe and leave the driving to the pros of 290 Wine Shuttle and don't miss the best wine on the trail at Longhorn Cellars. Shuttle runs on Saturday only. They run private excursions for groups throughout the week.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
