The owners of Grape Creek Vineyards present the Texas Hill Country wine experience you’ve been waiting for! Heath Sparkling Wines is already taking advance reservations and will open to the public in July.

Heath Sparkling is the first of its kind – a Texas winery devoted entirely to sparkling wines. While members of Grape Creek Vineyards’ own wine club have early access to the new tasting room, the grand opening is scheduled for the end of July, with pre-booking reservations available at this link. Judging from the enthusiasm of Grape Creek club members, this will be a highly desired Texas Wine experience.

Situated amidst the vines and sharing a common entrance with Grape Creek on Wine Road 290, Heath Sparkling Wines is an architectural feast for the eyes. “We really love the clean, modern lines of this new tasting room, and think it’s a great match for the tasting experience inside,” said Brian Heath, owner of Grape Creek.

The Sparkling Experience will showcase vintage sparkling wines in a stunning tasting room, highlighted by guided private tastings that will convey a full sensory experience. With window-scapes overlooking verdant vineyards, the presentation of vintage sparkling wines will include culinary bites that compliment the unique flavors and textures of each wine from Heath Sparkling.

Heath Sparkling does utilize traditional techniques from Champagne, including Méthode Champenoise – secondary fermentation and extended aging on the lees.  “Sparkling wine takes a different process than how we make our Grape Creek red and white wines,” said Jason Englert, the wine maker for both Grape Creek and Heath Sparkling.  “And the variety of grapes gives us an amazing program featuring many different styles of Sparkling with a unique vintage character.”
