Estates & Vineyards

Producing quality wine is our top priority, which is why we have chosen to be heavily involved in the vineyards where we source our grapes, including our Estate at Grape Creek Vineyards, the Texas High Plains and our Estate in Paso Robles, California.

Grape Creek Estate

Texas Hill Country AVA

Our vineyards are designed in blocks situated throughout our 100-acre site in order to take advantage of the best soil, air flow and high ground to help protect the vines from freezes. The entry and tasting room blocks also create a beautiful setting for our visitors. These Texas Hill Country AVA grapes are the stars of our Grape Creek Estate Club.

Our estate vineyards generally represent grape varietals from warmer growing regions like the Rhone Valley and Madiran in southern France, and Colline Teramane and Basilicata in Central Italy.

Our Spring 2020 planting features three red Bordeaux varietals; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. This brings our estate plantings to 22 acres.

Texas High Plains AVA

The Texas High Plains is the second largest AVA in Texas, with over 5,000 acres under vine. Characterized by high elevation (3500’), long sunny days, cool clear nights and steady winds, the region is conducive to premium grape growing. The High Plains AVA supports over 75 varietals, and Grape Creek works with top growers to source some of our most popular favorites like Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Viognier, Mourvèdre, and Pinot Grigio.

Growers navigate challenges like late spring frost, summer storms, and often intense heat, but in so doing, grapes mature and ripen to proper sugar levels, while the diurnal temperature swings preserve acidity.  Our team is in the vineyards throughout the growing season, and this partnership supports our low yield viticulture protocols.  Grapes and wine have been produced in this region since the mid-1970’s.
