Authentic Texas Wine
Founders William "Bill" Blackmon and Chris Brundrett believe the best wines are grown, not made, and should be an expression of their native Texas terroir. That’s why you’ll often hear us say, we are pleased to share a piece of our world. We can’t wait to share it with you.

"I can’t imagine not visiting William Chris Vineyards whenever we’re in the Hill Country. While the wine is exceptional - California and European snobs take note - the experience is equally impressive. We look forward to our next experience!"

We Grow Wine
In 2008, William Chris Vineyards was born in Hye, Texas. Utilizing Old-World winemaking techniques, Chris and Bill sought to create a genuine expression of Texas' distinctive grape-growing regions. Our approach is founded on the idea that great wines are not made, but grown. Each new vintage seeks to provide a level of quality wine that represents the very best of Texas terroir.
