With a goal of creating a place where you can “relax and unwined”, the Star of Texas Winery in Brown County is a family-owned boutique tasting room exclusively stocking Texas wines and presently in the process of developing their acreage to grow their own grapes. Brian and Moira McCue had 30 years experience in their respective employment fields when they chose to make a change and finally pursue their shared interest in starting a winery. After seeing the property in Early, Texas, they knew they had found the place.
Star of Texas Winery to Open in April: Better ‘Early’ (Texas) Than Never
Through the launch of a Kickstarter project, the McCue’s are completing the transformation of an abandoned storehouse on the property into a rustic tasting room for their customers to experience an authentic Texas wine destination and tasting trip. In efforts to give current and upcoming wine enthusiasts and Star of Texas Winery supporters the opportunity to be a part of their dream, Brian and Moira’s Kickstarter campaign features some fantastic wine and winery-related sponsor gifts that will quickly make this location not only a reality but a noteworthy A-list touring stop for connoisseurs. From Star of Texas Winery fan gear (corkscrew and wine glass set, t-shirts and hoodies) to wine and cheese experiences, to the honor of being among a select few to sample their first offerings in their newly designed tasting room upon completion.
With a proposed opening scheduled for April of this year, the Star of Texas Winery is presently partnering with Wedding Oak Winery of San Saba to provide its first offerings in five varietals – all Texas wines, made from Texas grapes. In the meantime, Brian has been working to clear the property and prep it for viticulture, with the planting of five to six acres of their own grapes. With that, their plans are to transition to wine offerings that are made exclusively with their own produce, which is anticipated to be in full growth within two to three years.
