Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

We have been very fortunate that Hurricane Harvey did not affect us directly in Fredericksburg. Over the last several days, we have seen a number of evacuees in our tasting room trying to distract themselves from the horrible reality waiting for them when they return home. Their stories, combined with the powerful images on the news and shared on social media have greatly affected us all. Sixty-five percent of our customers live in the Houston area and along the coast!

To try and offer some support, we have decided donate twenty percent of our sales from this long weekend (Saturday, September 2nd – Monday, September 4th) to support the relief efforts underway throughout Texas. We encourage everyone in the Hill Country area to do whatever they can to help – raise money, buy or collect items and take them off at any number of drop-off points, or simply make a cash donation. We have provided a link to GlobalGiving’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. Every little bit will make a difference!

We hope to see you this weekend as we come together to support the thousands of people who are in need of our help.

The results of the 2017 San Francisco International Wine Competition have been released and suffice it to say that we are both ecstatic and humbled. Of the fifteen wines we submitted, thirteen were awarded medals including two bonze, seven silver, two gold and two double gold! To top it off, our Rosé Champagne was selected as the Best Sparkling Rosé of the competition!

We invite you to view our congratulatory email below!
