Who we are

Prior to their partnership, both Bill and Chris had numerous years of experience growing grapes in Texas. Since the two established the William Chris Vineyards brand, a beautiful story continues to be written. Not only driven by the passion of our founders but also the community they continue to build as the business grows. Our vineyard partners, winemakers, and team members make Bill and Chris's vision a reality.

Share a Piece of Our World.

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

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 vintage, each made exclusively from Texas-grown grapes.
