About Us

“Honoring our past, while celebrating the present.”

This is the mantra of Texas Heritage Vineyard. With deep Texas roots, the owners of Texas Heritage Vineyard strive to present wines made from grapes that thrive in our culture and climate.

Texas Heritage Vineyard is a vision realized by owners Billy and Susan Johnson. They dreamed of starting a family-run winery built with the central theme of honoring Texas that could be passed down to future generations. That dream was fulfilled with an exquisite estate vineyard, state-of-the-art winery, and gracious tasting room that has won the hearts of Texans and visitors.

The Johnsons started by planting the first grapevines in 2015, and the estate vineyard now has twelve and a half acres of varietals such as Alicante Bouschet, Malbec, Tempranillo, Souzao, Tannat and Viognier. The winery production facility was completed in the fall of 2017, is home to more than 400 barrels of wine, and is used for special Wine Club events.

Winemaker, Tyler Buddemeyer, has been invaluable in the Texas Heritage story and has developed his unique style with many Texas Heritage wines. Susan and Tyler together to make winemaking decisions and chart the vineyard to bottle progression.

The Texas Heritage Vineyard tasting room, located in the heart of the Texas wine corridor in Fredericksburg, Texas, opened in May of 2018 and is operated by daughter Jessica Allen. The tasting room is an ideal spot to have fun with friends.
