Meet the Owners

Brian and Jennifer Heath

Brian and Jennifer Heath have owned Grape Creek Vineyards in Fredericksburg, Texas, since 2006. They have planted estate vineyards, expanded and developed state-of-the-art winemaking facilities, and created an exceptional visitor experience at their “Tuscany in Texas” tasting rooms. In 2014, they purchased Heath Vineyards in the Paso Robles Willow Creek district, which has already yielded multiple 90+ point wines.

Additionally, they partnered with Stout’s Kitchens to provide an upscale, on-property restaurant overlooking the vines. They also opened tasting rooms in Georgetown, Texas, and downtown Fredericksburg to better serve the many Grape Creek Wine Club Members.

In 2019, construction was completed on Heath Sparkling Wines, the first winery in Texas dedicated to sparkling wines. The dramatic, modern architecture and unique wine presentation round out the experience of “One Vineyard Estate, Two Premier Wineries” for their guests and Members.

Most recently, they established Invention Vineyards. Bringing innovation to this historic property, the completely renovated industrial urban tasting room is surrounded by 35 acres of estate vineyards and a full-production winery. Visit today and see the transformation.

The exclusive and ultra-premium Jenblossom Cellars portfolio was introduced in 2022. These ultra-premium Cabernets and Pinot Noir are sourced from our growers in Howell Mountain, Yountville, Rutherford and more, then crafted in our Texas cellar. Experience our bold Napa and Sonoma wines in an intimate, seated tasting at Grape Creek Vineyards.

What’s next? Who knows, but we know something will always be on the horizon.
