Enjoy the Texas Hill Country
The moment you pull off Highway 290 onto the William Chris grounds, you can't help but be in awe of the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country. From the simple charm of our original farmhouse to the modern tasting room surrounded by an active vineyard - all elements of our property are beautifully suited to their terroir and expressive of our reverence for the past and vision for the future. The history and agricultural heritage of this place are on display, set against the backdrop of the Pedernales River Basin. We invite you to come and discover all that we have to offer at William Chris.
What people are saying
“Serving the community is vital to William Chris Vineyard’s DNA. Brundrett wants to set an example for the staff, customers, colleagues, and partners that making wine of intention does not end with the sale.”
Michelle Williams,award-winning wine writer
"From the moment we were greeted to every interaction with staff was amazing. The wines, views and hospitality are all wonderful. Book your tasting and enjoy this beautiful place!"
"Exceptional wines and beautiful countryside to spend the day with your friends. My wife and I have toured the Texas Wine Country and have finally found a vineyard that we are willing to return to frequently, so much so we joined the wine club.”
“Texas Wine with Intention. With an unrivaled passion and determination, Chris Brundrett and William ‘Bill” Blackmon are dedicated to showing the rest of the world how wonderful Texas wine can be through William Chris Vineyards.”
Wine Business Monthly
“...Once checking in, we were guided to the area where the wine and food pairing would take place. We purchased 6 bottles of wine and can't wait to pair those with our own home cooked meals. If you are like us, and have never stopped by William Chris Vineyards, we highly recommend you do!"
"I can’t imagine not visiting William Chris Vineyards whenever we’re in the Hill Country. While the wine is exceptional - California and European snobs take note - the experience is equally impressive. We look forward to our next experience!"
“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.”
