Scattered throughout the Hill Country and all within a brief and breath taking drive of Lampasas lies some 70 spectacular and visually stunning wineries. Each of these wineries have their own personality, style of making wine, and a passion for what they do. Some of these wineries include:
Construction of the winery and tank room began in 2017 incorporating unique features to ensure all wines are of best quality. Our winery was built for the use of a gravity-flow technique. The structure was built into the side of a hill to integrate and take advantage of cooler temperatures, as well as gravity.
Grapes are crushed right outside the winery, then pumped through built-in piping to the tank room for processing. From the tank room, the juice is then transferred to the barrel room using an intentionally designed, gravity-fed method. This unique process allows for less bruising of the skin and juice. Since the juice consists of long molecule chains, gravity-flow allows the molecule chains to maintain their structure, allowing the grapes' characteristics and integrity to be preserved.
After many visits to local vineyards and wineries, and meetings with owners, the best practices were taken away and the design of Stoneledge Winery and Vineyard began. Construction of the winery began in 2017, incorporating unique features to ensure all wines are of the highest quality. Greg and Deborah would love to invite you out to join in their passion.
