The Duchman Family 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 viticultural consultant Bobby Cox and growers in the Texas High Planes AVA to produce grapes that would allow their winemakers, Dave Reilly and Mark Penna, 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 AVA, where cooler temperatures and a more “continental” climate are ideal for the production of fine wine made from Italian grape varieties. 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. With an eye on the future, Duchman Family Winery continues to develop innovative winemaking and grape growing techniques in order to provide wine that truly reflects a taste of Texas for years to come.Duchman Family Winery remains one of the top wine destinations in Texas. All of the winery’s current releases can be sampled and purchased at the winery’s tasting room and the estate’s beautiful Italianate villa and grounds are open to visitors who can enjoy their wines with a picnic lunch! We have picnic tables outdoors in the shade of the oaks, or pick a cozy spot inside the winery hallway with a windowed view into the barrel room, fermentation tank, or production area for bottling and labeling of our wines.

Stopped in for an early wine tasting on a beautiful evening. There were a few people on the lawn enjoying their wine at picnic tables, some with children who had plenty of room to play, which gave a serene park atmosphere. We shared some delightful...More

Variety was awesome, and the descriptions of their offerings were even better! The grounds and building are stunning, and the young lady who served us was super sweet and very helpful.

They do not grow their own wines, instead they import grapes from all over the country. Nonetheless, we discovered many unique and flavorful wines. The staff is great, taking great care to explain the wine backgrounds and answer all of our questions. A good place...More

The tasting area is very pretty, though seems kind of incongruous to try and style a part of Texas after an Italian Villa. I like the giant jenga outside, and the other games. The wine itself is incredibly sweet which is just not my cup...More

This was another one of our vineyard stops across the Texas Hill Country. The Duchman Family grounds were vast and beautiful, as though modeled after an estate in Italy. This makes sense of course given their preference for producing 100% Texas-made, Italian-style wines. We must...More

Very difficult to find so good Italian grapes in Texas. The Montepulciano and the Vermentino are great. Fantastic service.

This is a gorgeous winery. We did a quick tasting as we had dinner reservations. Wines are good, staff pouring is nice. You can enjoy your wine outside under beautiful trees. Not much else to say.

This was a fun stop and with pretty decent wines. All are in the Italian style and I must say they do a pretty fair job. We found the staff to be friendly and knowledgeable and they do a pretty nice "pour" compared to others....More
