“Made from 100% Texas grown fruit”
All of our wines are made from 100% Texas grown fruit, the vast majority of which is homegrown right here on our own 16-acre family vineyard. We also partner with other select Texas growers to enhance both the diversity and quantity of our wine portfolio. The result — award-winning, handcrafted wines that beautifully express the unique characteristics of the Texas terroir. Come in, enjoy our wines, and join us in being True to Texas! When you visit Perissos, rows of vines will welcome you, bidding you to sip our wines outdoors on a picnic table among the grapevines – with a view of a local castle to boot! Or, come inside where you’ll be served in the hub of our winery amidst tanks and barrels. While we take our winemaking quite seriously, you’ll find the atmosphere at Perissos to be relaxed and unpretentious.
We are not fancy, and we've never done a wine tasting before. This place changed my mind on wine. The extremely friendly staff took time to educate me and the Mrs. on wine and the winery. They answered all of the questions we had. And even though we looked rough, they treated us like they had known us forever. What a great place! The wine tasting is only $10 a person. Definitely worth it. Guys, branch out a little and take your woman there. You'll both love it.
The wine, the staff, the atmosphere, all great! The gentleman who served us for our tasting was very knowledgeable and also gave us a few pointers when it came to wine.
The Traveling Winers on Texas Wine Trail
Is there such a thing as a Gold-Star winery? Perhaps the Vineyard Trail Winers need to start that rating system! Perissos Vineyards and Winery would surely win the designation (as would a couple of other vineyards here in the Fredericksburg area!) Anyway, we bet you may have guessed that we really enjoyed our visit here!
Seth Martin, the owner (along with his wife, of course! :-)), wine maker, and grower does it all and does it all superbly! We were treated to a wine tasting among the vines which was a first. Seth and his event coordinator, Rachel, took us out into the vineyard and showed us the vines from which the particular wine we were tasting at the moment had been grown. He educated us on the soil, the fact that his land is in the Colorado River basin, and how the alkalinity vs. acidity of the soil makes a difference with vine growth and ultimately grape structure. (Gosh, I hope I got that somewhat close to being right!? Did I, Seth?) Anyway, way interesting! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
Perissos has a new tasting room that is just gorgeous. Beautiful light wood and large windows overlooking the vineyards. They use it as the tasting room, but it can also serve as an area for special events such as weddings, graduation parties, or anniversaries. They fashion their tasting room similar to one we visited in New Zealand. Long tables where you can sit and chat with your party, taking your time instead of standing on your feet during the tasting. They come right to the table and serve you. Slows down the pace of life….at least while visiting this winery! Some folks may like this style of wine tasting and others may not….but we have noticed, regardless of our preference one way or the other, several wineries in Texas are taking this approach.
Not only are the facilities and the staff here wonderful, so is their wine. Very nice quality and full of flavor! Perissos is a “must visit” on your Texas wine trail. I am confident that you will NOT be disappointed!
