Spicewood Vineyards

1419 Co Rd 409, Spicewood / 830.693.5328 / Website

After spending time in the Ribera del Duero vineyards, Ron Yates developed a taste for Spanish wines, which he combined with his Texas family roots when he purchased the Vineyard in 2007. With grapes produced in Texas, the Yates family and the Spicewood Vineyards staff are committed to producing the best wines possible. What started as 17 acres of grape vines has expanded to 32 acres growing several varieties including chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and tempranillo. In order to ensure that wine lovers get the best quality products, Spicewood Vineyards works with well-established grape growers here in Texas who share the same passion for being in the vineyard to ensure we have a steady supply of high-quality grapes in a wide selection of varieties.

Becker Vineyards

464 Becker Farms Rd., Fredericksburg / 830.644.2681 / Website

Like many Texans, the Becker family began searching for a log cabin to renovate in order to create a Texas Hill Country getaway from their home in nearby San Antonio. The 46 acres of raw land and fallow fields of deep sand and Precambrian granitic soils 1500 feet above sea level happened to be an added bonus. Their newest release, the Jolie, was created by pressing Counoise grapes and blending roses of cabernet sauvignon and syrah to add a unique and fruity flavor to the palate.

Signor Vineyards

Slate Theory

10915 US-290, Fredericksburg / 830.998.8306 / Website

The Therapist and the Patient wines were created in a collaboration between Slate Theory Winery and The Big Silence Foundation to continue to open up mental health conversations and break the silence together. A portion of the proceeds benefit The Big Silence Foundation’s programs and tools to support people’s mental health journey.
