Experience Details:

Experience a grape's journey from vine to wine to bottle in this exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of William Chris Vineyards. Led by our knowledgeable tasting room ambassadors, you will be guided through the vineyard, to our production area with a final stop to taste wine directly from the barrel.

 

As this is an active production area, no two tours are the same. Depending on the season, you could witness veraison in the vineyard, see our production team welcoming fruit, filling barrels to start the fermentation process or the bottling of wine. Each tour will be unique. Along your tour, you will taste five Texas wines. 

 

This experience lasts approximately 90 minutes, and we ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to your reservation time so that we can greet you. This experience does include walking across the property, parts of which will be in grass and dirt so please dress with that in mind.

This is the perfect experience for those who are new to wine and those who are the biggest Texas wine fans. As we all know, the best way to learn is to experience it for yourself...and drink along the way! You will leave with a greater appreciation for Texas grape farmers and winemakers.
