In 2009, William Chris began remodeling the old farmhouse, which is now our Hye Society Lounge. While they were working on the demolition, Chris found a skeleton key hanging on a nail in the middle room. The skeleton key opened every door in the old farmhouse giving the Bill and Chris a sense of connection to the house, its history, and to our winery’s storied roots. The skeleton key awakened the spirit of William Chris by forming the connection between the old and new – our history and our future. This soulful wine is to celebrate the coming together of two great friends, their commitment to authenticity, and how a very special “piece of our world” was realized when that key was turned.
A true Texas red that has big and bold flavors of lush dark fruits, undercurrents of earth and sweet hints of vanilla. Pair this with our wood fired Ribeye and find yourself living the hill country way.
