Part 3: Duchman Family Winery

Duchman Family Winery

The Duchman Family Winery was founded in 2004 by Lisa and Stan Duchman in Driftwood, Texas. The winery is set in the middle of the beautiful Hill Country and was built with a dedication of bringing the unique Italian grapes to central Texas. Texas is unique in its ability to support the Italian grapes as we share a similar weather environment to the original location.  This has allowed the winemakers, Dave Reilly and Mark Penna to experiment with a wide variety of wines, such as Vermentino, Sangiovese, and Dolcetto. The Duchman Family Winery sources much of their fruit from the Texas High Plains, where the temperature is a bit cooler and ideal for the types of grapes they wish to grow.

The Duchman Family Winery is dedicated to providing a wonderful experiments to customers who make the trip to Driftwood to sample their wines in person. All of their wines are available to sample in their tasting room, which is in the design of a picturesque Italian villa. It combines the feel of an old-fashioned setting while melding it with new, giving customers a chance to peek into what goes into producing their tasty wine. They offer guided tours of the entire fermentation and bottling process. Once you’ve gotten your wine, the grounds offer beautiful views of the Texas Hill Country where you can enjoy a nice picnic. Every Thursday starting on the 19th of September they will be hosting the  Throwback (wine) Thursday Movie Series where they will be screening Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and sampling their Rosso and Bianco wines.
