Our 3rd Anniversary

We had to postpone our anniversary a couple months, but it still turned out amazing! Originally we had envisioned a big event with food trucks and live music, but that changed. Since we had limited seating inside, we decided to celebrate it over 3 days.  The weather cooperated, so the patio/pavilion area was well used all weekend.

The weekend started with the release of 3 new 100% Texas wines: Welcome, an aromatic dry white blend of Malvasia Bianca & Viognier. It’s the fitting replacement of our original award-winning Welcome.  Aged to Reflection 2 is a compelling dry red blend. This version is a blend of 8 varietals, with much more complexity. Finally the Peach is back! You can officially start your summer now, because we have Peached Up back in stock.

One encouraging thing we noticed is that we had guest from all over Texas this past weekend (Huntsville, Lufkin, Waco, Frisco, Hewitt, Austin, Lubbock, Georgetown, Breckenridge, Midland, Odessa & Manor). It’s nice to see people traveling again.

The weekend was busy and we’re so grateful for that but the highlight of the weekend was totally unexpected. Unbeknownst to us, one of our biggest supporters had something special in mind for us. Sharon contacted one of our guests that creates beautiful wood work along with another guest that does laser engraving. We had a group of our regulars in attendance as we were presented with these 2 incredible Adirondack chairs! We were flabbergasted, speechless and teary eyed. We still can’t begin to say how truly blessed we have been since we moved here.

As always, thank you for your continued support & encouragement. We love this community!!!

Cheers,
Moira & Brian

Oh, and this!

We Made it to June!

Whew, but we’re not even halfway into 2020! Through all of this, we’ve seen the strength of our community. Brown County has some amazing people, that are proud to call this area home. As are we.

If you’re new or visiting, checkout our Around Town page. It lists things to see and places to eat and stay.


Have you set up your online account?

We just launched our new website (www.spiritoftexaswinery.com). Have you set up your online account yet? The new store is much easier to use and there’s more coming! 


New 100% Texas Wine Releases

We just released the 3rd bottling of our crowd favorite Blush as well as our new 100% Picpoul Blanc (tropical bouquet but a wonderfully clean finish).

Upcoming releases: 2nd bottling of the Welcome White, a blend of Malvasia & Viognier. This dry white has a lovely floral bouquet and a finish that leaves you wanting more.

We’re excited to release Aged to Reflection 2. Comprising of Montepulciano, Aglianico, Tempranillo, Dolcetto and a few others, this dry red blend will surprise you with its complexity.

Our last June release has been requested for weeks! Our 2nd bottling of Peached Up will also be released in June. We had a trial run of this in December, and have been getting requests for more ever since. It’s a sweet white with natural peach flavorings. Pairs perfect with summer!!

We also have a 100% Texas Roussanne. It’s a dry white that we plan on releasing in the fall.

There’s more! We’re bottling 3 more dry reds this month. We’re excited about our 100% Texas Sangiovese. We hope to release it in December. The others are Aged to Reflection 3 and a 100% Texas Aglianico that will be released next year.

In the next few weeks, we’ll find out what’s available from the Texas grape growers and make our plans for what we’ll be bottling in 2021. We’re going to need more space! :)


New Stuff

We have some new logo hats coming in. The design will have our logo on the side. Brian says this is the cool look now!

Last month we added these fun ‘I Love Texas Wine’ shirts in crew and v-neck. They’re both Bella Canvas and very soft, especially the tri-blend v-neck.

We’re also stocking up on our bottle chillers. These have been the best wine accessory we’ve had!


New Projects

Our highlight of 2020 is the Roof Top Winery sign! We love it!!

We added a 40’ shipping container that we converted into a large walk-in wine cooler. We’re adding a 40’ ‘car port’ to it to store the farm equipment.

We hung some more items inside the tasting room and have added a bunch of LED lights on the patio & fence line.

We have a few more projects that we’re hoping to start soon. Stay tuned for what’s in store!


Hours

For 3 years we were open almost every day. After the shutdown, we reduced our hours and have gotten kind of used to them! So here are our current hours:
