Overview
More
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.

We found this place to have the best tasting wines out of the 5 wineries we visited. All 6 of the wines we tasted were very easy to enjoy. Prices were also reasonable.

Had 6 tastings for a reasonable price. Limited counter space if you come on a busy day. Great to get a glass afterwards and walk around the estate

You will be transported to Italy. The architecture and grounds are beautiful. Go inside for a tasting. Go outside to relax on the lawn and play corn hole or jumbo jenga. The restaurant is fantastic too.

Little hard to find as there wasn't a Duchman sign on the main road, but only a Vineyard sign with another name. Great place to start your wine tour at a fairly new building with very nice bathrooms and huge event room. Large windows to...More

A flight of 6 tastes of wine is only $12, which is a real bargain, I think. You'll probably find at least a couple wines to take home by the bottle. We always do. The winery is picturesque, as is the tasting room. And we've...More

Excellent wines, friendly and knowledgeable pourers. Good selection of very dry to semi-sweet wines. The Montepulciano was especially good. Dry but mild red. The Trattoria Lisina Restaurant right next door serves a variety of Italian dishes from lesser expensive pastas to fine dining selections.
