Winemaker Spotlight: Perissos Vineyards

For three generations the Perissos Vineyard and Winery family have been farming in some form or fashion. Located in the heart of Texas Hill Country the vineyard is home to quality winemaking and old-fashioned living. The Estate-style vineyard team is well-educated and operates the facility utilizing the most cutting-edge winemaking technology. From barrel aging to hand harvesting the Perissos team is developing custom products from locally grown fruit.

In 2006 they harvested their first crop and their philosophy on developing a premier vintage hasn’t changed. They’re diligent about sprouting their award-winning wines in the field, nurturing them with care throughout the growing season, until it’s time to move to the fermentation process. The attention to detail that is given to the plants and land cultivation is where the magic happens.

Perissos Vineyard and Winery is committed to using only Texas grown fruit. The regional terroir is what provides the unique flavors and distinct varietals which can only be found in Texas Hill Country. In 2009 they won their first award for a white table wine and was the start of many awards to come. After over a decade of dedication to the agricultural development of the land they continue to progress and bring unique wines to market. They have been winning awards for both their white and red varietals for almost a decade. Most recently they took home the Double Gold, Class Champion, Texas Class Champion, Estate Grown 2015 Viognier from the 2017 Houston Rodeo International Wine Competition.

Perissos wines tantalize the palate and all senses. From their custom drawing of the vineyard and farm which adorns every bottle, a fragrant bouquet of a recently tapped barrel, to the personalized wine tours they offer, a visit to this vineyard is always one you’ll remember. The tasting room can accommodate up to 120 people, and their tours are available by appointment. They tailor each tour based on the individual group and if you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind location to hold your private event or wedding, Perissos Vineyard and Winery is an incredible option.
