Located in Coleman, Texas, we began developing our vineyard in January of 2011, marking the beginning of our life-long love of growing grapes and producing quality and enjoyable wine for all our fans and future customers!
In 2003, while serving in Iraq, Stephen Watson, a native born Texan, had a dream of creating and walking through his own vineyard and making wine. When he returned from his second and final tour in Iraq, he moved to California to be with his wife of only a year. Over the next several years he studied at UC Davis, earning a viticulture certification and interned at the well-known winery J.Lohr and learned the art and science of winemaking while developing a passion for the business.
He believes he has discovered what quality winemaking takes and hopes to develop a product that is liked by many. In 2011, with his wife Mary’s assistance, they began the beginning of what they hope will be a life-long and prosperous endeavor. Stephen grew up in Coleman, a small town about 180 miles northwest of Austin.
The Watson’s currently have 1,300 vines planted on roughly 1.5 acres, and plan to continue to add more in the coming years, hoping to grow some quality grapes for winemaking.
At this time we are not open to the public, but please visit our online wine store if you want us to ship to you.
