ABOUT WILLIAM VINEYARDS:
William Chris Vineyards is helmed by two of the foremost winegrowers in Texas, William “Bill” Blackmon and Chris Brundrett. Since founding WCV in 2008, WCV has set the bar high for other area wineries, being a trend-setter instead of simply following the crowd. Unique characteristics help them stand out, including:
- William Chris Vineyards prides themselves on only using Texas-grown grapes and are also fierce advocates for the farmers that cultivate them.
- Winemaking techniques at WCV are decidedly Old World, utilizing farming as well as local culture. In line with this thinking, the wines themselves serve as a true and unique reflection of Texasʼ distinctive terroir.
- William Chris Vineyards produces many varietals of wine, including Mourvèdre (of which WCV is the leading producer in Texas), Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Blanc du Bois, Petit Verdot, Tannat, and Trebbiano, all of which are made using a “low-impact” method to ensure a quality sustainable product.
At William Chris Vineyards, we focus on low impact 100% Texas grown wine. Owners and winemakers, Bill Blackmon and Chris Brundrett, sat down together at a Hill Country bar one night and discovered they shared a similar philosophy for winemaking.
They believe that the way to put Texas on the map as a respected wine region is to promote wines made exclusively from Texas grown fruit. Wines that make California and France recognizable come from the unique terroir and growing conditions of each region. They believe that for Texas wines to distinguish themselves, they also should represent the terroir and growing conditions of the Lone Star State.
Not only did they believe that the grapes needed to be Texan, they also believe that to grow the best fruit, much time among the vines is required. So walking multitudes of “footsteps in the vineyard,” Bill and Chris carefully inspect the fruit of every vintage.
