2021 Vintner Dinner Series
Vineyrue taste of the Texas Hill Country during our annual Vintner Dinner Series! The lovely rolling hills of the Texas Hill Country are home to Texas Wine Country, which is the second largest certified Viticultural Area in America. The area produces incredible wines with distinct terroirs, no two quite alike—except for their fine quality.
Explore and enjoy the complex characteristics of a range of varietals during our exclusive Vintner Dinner Series! This tradition has long been a favorite of Inn guests and local residents as an opportunity to enjoy gourmet food while learning the winemaking process from top wineries in the area. Join us for a weekend stay from February 6th through February 27th, 2020 and treat your taste buds to an exquisite experience.
February 6th: William Chris Vineyards / Lost Draw Cellars
February 13th: Pontotoc Vineyard
February 20th: Torr Na Lochs Vineyard & Winery
February 27th: Texas Hills Vineyard
William Chris / Lost Draw Cellars: William Chris Wines believes that the way to put Texas on the map as a respected wine region is to promote wines made exclusively from Texas grown fruit. They farm vineyards all over the state of Texas and varietals include Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and more. They continue to grow each year thanks to the support of Texas wine lovers.
Pontotoc Vineyard: Pontotoc Vineyard was established in the unique terroir of the Llano Uplift in the Northern Hill Country community of Pontotoc, Mason County, Texas. Pontotoc means “Land of Hanging Grapes” and the vineyard was planted in the fertile red sand soil of a high valley surrounded by pink granite outcroppings and sandstone hills on a farm originally founded by the German Emigration Company in 1872.
Torr Na Lochs: We purchased our 180-acre ranch while living in Scotland, and our time there inspired the name Torr Na Lochs, which loosely translates from Gaelic to Hill Over Lakes. Two years of weekends preparing the vineyard culminated with the planting of our first three acres of vines in April 2014. Winery construction started shortly thereafter, and the tasting room opened in September 2015. As native Texans, we are committed to wines made from only Texas grown fruit. We invite you to relax and enjoy the variety of Torr Na Lochs wines.
Texas Hills Vineyard: The rolling hills and the soil are much like that of the Tuscan countryside, in Italy. Once Kathy and Gary saw the location that makes the Texas Hills Vineyard they decided to have an Italian influence to their wines. All of the grapes grown allow wines to be produced with a decidedly Italian influence. Dale manages the vineyard and works to produce the highest quality Texas grapes with which to produce the wine. Gary takes what is produced and oversees the wine. Kathy manages the tasting room and invites you to drop by and sample wines and shop the gift shop.
