Who we are

Prior to their partnership, both Bill and Chris had numerous years of experience growing grapes in Texas. Since the two established the William Chris Vineyards brand, a beautiful story continues to be written. Not only driven by the passion of our founders but also the community they continue to build as the business grows. Our vineyard partners, winemakers, and team members make Bill and Chris's vision a reality.

We are pleased to share a piece of our world

Founders William "Bill" Blackmon and Chris Brundrett believe the best wines are grown, not made, and should be an expression of their native 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.

Enchanté, y'all!

Winemaker Chris Brundrett believes in making Texas wines from Texas fruit... He specializes in serious reds from Rhône varieties, though he also makes wines that are refreshing and fun.

William Chris Vineyards was founded in 2008 by Chris Brundrett and Bill Blackmon, a pioneer of Texas wine who’s been growing grapes in the state since the 1970s. Perhaps the most vocal proponents of Texas wine produced with 100 percent Texas grapes, the duo has pushed quality forward and crafted their own unique style, with wines that are vibrant and elegant, structured yet crushable at the same time.

Emma Balter
