Texas Heritage started as a dream for owners Billy and Susan Johnson. They dreamed of a family operation that could be passed down to future generations. The dream included a vineyard, winery, and tasting room all built with honoring Texas as the central theme.
The first grapevines were planted in 2015. To date, twelve and a half acres have been planted with varietals including Alicante Bouschet, Malbec, Tempranillo, Souzao, Tannat and Viognier. The winery facility was completed in the fall of 2017 and was used to crush grapes for the first time with the harvest of 2018. The winery building has hosted Wine Club events and is home to over 300 stored barrels of wine.
Texas Heritage Vineyard Tasting Room is located at 3245 E US Hwy 290 and opened in May of 2018. Daughter, Jessica Allen, manages the tasting room. We are blessed to have a wonderful, inviting staff that makes everyone feel at home!
As long-time Texas music enthusiasts and supporters, the Johnson’s try to marry talented Texas singer-songwriters and great Texas wines, made by hand with love, in their tasting room and at their winery. Look for events with these musicians on Friday and Sunday afternoons.
Other events planned at the tasting room location include charitable events and Texas Flag Retirement ceremonies. Billy Johnson has performed these ceremonies for years and all who watch or participate come away with a deep sense of Texas pride and appreciation.
Like most Texans, the Johnsons are very proud of their State. They hope to preserve and promote that pride while having a blast with great texas wine! Stop in, have a drink or taste, and explore the wonders of 100% Texas wine with us!
