Visit Our Tasting Room

The William Chris tasting room, production facility, and vineyard reside on 20 acres of historic farm property in the tiny hamlet of Hye, Texas.

A short 50-minute drive west of Austin and north of San Antonio right off of Highway 290, the William Chris property gives a nod to the historic past while looking to the future, much the same way we craft our wine.

Share a Piece of Our World

Enjoy a wine tasting in our tasting room built in 2012 using materials repurposed from the original homestead. Hye Society wine club members relax in the cozy atmosphere of the original farmhouse built in 1905.

The oak-dotted property and rolling hills beyond invite you to sit a spell on our patio or covered pavilion with a glass of your favorite William Chris wine made exclusively from Texas grapes. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays bring live music to the outdoor area.

Snack plates of cheese, pâté, or hummus can curb your hunger pangs.
