Overview

The Duchman Family Winery was founded in 2004 by Drs. Lisa and Stan Duchman in a quest to bring world-class winemaking to Central Texas and the Texas Hill Country. Their love of the unique Italian grape varieties as well as similar weather patterns to Texas inspired them to work with viticultural consultant Bobby Cox and growers in the Texas High Planes AVA to produce grapes that would allow their winemakers, Dave Reilly and Mark Penna, to experiment with making wines like Vermentino, Sangiovese, and Dolcetto.The winery continues to source the majority of its fruit from the Texas High Plains AVA, where cooler temperatures and a more “continental” climate are ideal for the production of fine wine made from Italian grape varieties. As the winery grows, the Duchmans remain committed to their goal to produce food-friendly fine wine in Central Texas using Texas-grown fruit exclusively. With an eye on the future, Duchman Family Winery continues to develop innovative winemaking and grape growing techniques in order to provide wine that truly reflects a taste of Texas for years to come.Duchman Family Winery remains one of the top wine destinations in Texas. All of the winery’s current releases can be sampled and purchased at the winery’s tasting room and the estate’s beautiful Italianate villa and grounds are open to visitors who can enjoy their wines with a picnic lunch! We have picnic tables outdoors in the shade of the oaks, or pick a cozy spot inside the winery hallway with a windowed view into the barrel room, fermentation tank, or production area for bottling and labeling of our wines.

Loved the wine! Almost everything we tried was amazing! My favorite was the red Canto Felice. I bought the bottle for $18, which I thought was a good deal! You can sample 6 wines for $12—great price! Beautiful estate!

We had a fun visit at Duchman Family Winery. Staff was extremely patient and knowledgeable. My wife and I enjoyed this tasting every bit as much as Sonoma. Highly recommend taking a visit.

We found this place to have the best tasting wines out of the 5 wineries we visited. All 6 of the wines we tasted were very easy to enjoy. Prices were also reasonable.

Had 6 tastings for a reasonable price. Limited counter space if you come on a busy day. Great to get a glass afterwards and walk around the estate
