Planted in 2000, Tallent Vineyards has become the largest vineyard in the Texas Hill Country AVA. The land where Tallent Vineyards is planted has not changed hands since Drew Tallent's German great-grandfather migrated to the hill country in the 1880s.
A pioneer in the winegrowing industry, when Tallent took over his family farm he was one of the first to convert his operation from peanuts to vineyards. In 2014, Tallent planted a block of Cabernet Sauvignon exclusively for William Chris Vineyards. The 2017 vintage was our first harvest off of that block - look for the finished wine in 2019.
