About William Chris Winery

From the winery:

What began as an acquaintance as winemakers in the Hill Country became a collaboration between William “Bill” Blackmon and Chris Brundrett; one that’s based on a shared winemaking philosophy and a vision for what the Texas wine industry is capable of. Bill and Chris agree that great wines are not made, but grown in the vineyard. They also believe that wine should be inspired by the pleasure that is shared with an extended community of friends and family over a bottle. The creation of each new vintage depends greatly upon these two priorities.

Today, William Chris Vineyards continues to reach for a level of quality that represents the very best of Texas in each new vintage. It is with confidence in our process and pride in our team, community, and the special place we call home, that we inscribe each bottle of William Chris Vineyards wine with this greeting: We are pleased to share a piece of our world.

When it comes to wine, location matters. That’s why William Chris joined with 23 of the leading wine regions of the world to support Truth in Labeling as a part of the global Wine Origins initiative. We support global efforts to uphold the integrity of each winegrowing region and their place names. And in 2021, we aided in achieving new legislation around labeling laws in the state of Texas so that wine consumers here know what makes a Texas wine, truly Texan.

Thoughtful winemaking begins with the harvest. Timing of each pick requires an understanding of chemistry coupled with a well-developed palate and a bit of good old-fashioned farmer’s intuition. Each harvest also depends heavily on mother nature as weather patterns have a substantial impact on the balance of acidity, sugar content, and flavor profiles in a finished wine. In our tasting room you’ll learn about what makes one vintage unique from the next.
