    A Tordiglione Family Tradition

    About Us

    Established in 1989 by the Tordiglione Family

    We have been a working ranch for over 25 years, primarily as a Registered Red Angus and Performance Paint Horse operation. 

    In 2010 we began a new adventure in the vineyard and wine business, but our families of Italy have been growing wines for over 100 years.  This family tradition continues today near Chalk Mountain, Texas, producing old world wines from 100% Texas grapes.

    The Vineyard

    Our vineyard site was chosen for its high mineral soils.  The hilltop soils are very dense with a mix of limestone, fossil shale and black soil.  The native minerals bring out the best in each vine and the end result is quality grown wine. 

    Our grape varieties include:  Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Tempranillo and Pinot Grigio.  These varieties are typically grown on the Mountain sides of Italy, Spain and Argentina which mirrors our environment here in the Central Texas Hill Country.
