Seeing miles and miles of Texas while traveling out to West Texas can be an understatement. However, located south of San Angelo is a fantastic boutique 25 acre vineyard and winery. Having been opened just under a year, the owner and his winemaker sons are on their way to producing some note worthy wines. The owner took over an already established vineyard that just needed some “TLC”. Some of the estate vines are even 28 years old! Having cleared out and replaced some of the vines that were no longer producing, the entire estate now looks green and lush. The current selection of wines includes Viognier, old vine Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah, Tempranillo, Blush, sweet Cabernet Sauvignon and more. In the works is also a Mourvèdre that you might want to make a return visit to try. The spring-fed Concho River and surrounding oak and pecan trees provide fantastic shade and help make this a pleasant oasis in the middle of seemingly nowhere. The tasting room has covered and heated outdoor seating, as well as sufficient indoor seating providing both tables for groups and some comfortable leather couches for you to really relax and make yourself right at home. Take your time when you visit, there’s no place else to really go around here, so sit and sip. Don’t worry, they even have food, like cheese trays and homemade pizza. They’ll feed you as you enjoy the day along with a glass or two of Christoval wine! It’s a win-win.
