Sitting on 15.8 acres in nearby Hye, Texas, Ron Yates Vineyards represents seven generations of Texas farmers and winemaking that is rooted in tradition from the ground up. This vineyard is a sister winery to the perennially popular Spicewood Vineyards, which has been filling the hearts (and glasses) of Texans since 1992. Offering years upon years of wine-making experience, the Ron Yates Vineyard is a family-owned winery that has strong relationships with multiple Texas grape growers–ensuring that the integrity of their Texas wines remain intact. Visit the tasting room and soak up the atmosphere of this winery, which was recently named by Tasting Table as one of “The Best New Wineries in the U.S.”

In a world of outsourcing and disconnection from history, family owned and operated vineyards work hard to unite their communities and produce products that are worthy of their names and labels. A visit to the Texas Hill Country this spring or summer is a great way to explore our booming wine industry and visit a few family-owned wineries who are always happy to educate and introduce guests to all that Texas’ wine industry has to offer.
