Happy Holidays from the Grape Creek Family!
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
Jennifer and I, and the whole Grape Creek team, want to wish you a happy, healthy and joyful holiday season. Seems like Christmas and the New Year always seem to bring a few moments of reflection.
We are very grateful to be part of the burgeoning Texas Wine Industry and to have experienced such an amazing 12 years since purchasing Grape Creek. From our staff and club members, to friends in the industry, it is a happy journey.
We have seen a lot of growth. Producing over 50,000 cases of wine this year compared to 2500 cases when we purchased the winery, has created a lot of change. Expanded tasting rooms and patios, advanced and larger wine production facilities, added locations, a restaurant and new vineyards have all been part of the evolution. We wouldn’t have experienced any of these improvements without our loyal club members. Thank you!
We made a choice long ago to be a wine club winery; a winery that focuses our efforts on producing great wines and providing enjoyable and unique experiences to our club members. Of course, we also love welcoming new guests who in turn become future club members.
The industry has grown rapidly over the last ten years and so have we. So much so, that we made a very conscious decision to be true to what we are, a winery and vineyard. To create an environment to explore and enjoy wine and to veer away from being a party place or bar. To be a place where wine is a pleasure, not a party.
The result? We have seen even more people join our club, and more stay in the club. We take that as an affirmation that we are on the right track. We also believe when you own a business, you want to make sure you feel good about what you offer and that you would choose to be a customer of your own business. And, we do and we would. Of course, we get to have fun continuing to evolve and improve moving forward (like the new Sparkling Wine Tasting Room coming in 2019), and we appreciate your ideas we have received along the way.
Thank you for being a club member, thanks for referring your friends to Grape Creek and we look forward to the many years to come.
Merry Christmas and Blessings to you and your families!
Brian and Jennifer Heath
