Join us for a five-course, fine-wine vintner dinner class spotlighting vintages from the Duchman family’s wine operation near Driftwood. The winery was founded in 2004 by Drs. Lisa and Stan Duchman in a quest to bring world-class winemaking to Central Texas and the Texas Hill Country. Their love of the unique Italian grape varieties, as well as similar weather patterns to Texas, inspired them to work with growers in the Texas High Plains AVA to produce grapes that would allow winemaker Dave Reilly to experiment with making wines like Vermentino, Sangiovese and Dolcetto. The winery continues to source the majority of its fruit from the Texas High Plains, where cooler temperatures and a more “continental” climate are ideal for the production of fine wine made from Italian grape varietals. As the winery grows, the Duchmans remain committed to their goal to produce food-friendly fine wine in Central Texas using Texas-grown fruit exclusively. Reserve your places at our table today.  Seating is very limited.
