Lewis Wines was established in 2010 by friends Doug Lewis and Duncan Mcnabb. Understanding that great wine is made in the vineyard, we use 100% Texas grapes with a focus on soil health, vine health and quality grapes. Our goal is to remain invisible in the cellar, producing age-worthy wines that showcase the vintage, vineyard and farming.
Our property is located just west of Johnson City in the Pedernales River Basin where we grow Tourgia Nacional, Tinto Cao, Tannat and Alicante Bouschet. We planted in 2014, and our small crew tends these vines year-round. We farm without the use of herbicides, with a focus on soil health by planting seasonal cover crops, applying compost and allowing our sheep and chicken to graze the vineyards.
We also source grapes throughout the state of Texas, primarily from the Hill Country and High Plains AVAs. Through thoughtful farming on our estate and closely partnering with our grape growers, Lewis Wines’ endeavor is to produce wines that truly highlight the taste- or terroir- of the many diverse microclimates under cultivation in the state of Texas today.
