Chris Missick punchdowns.jpg


There can be no great wine without extraordinary and difficult labor.  Our labor is the penance to produce excellence, but the reward is purity, beauty, and a time capsule of our efforts to share with family and friends.



Chris' path towards winemaking was two decades in the making, and included military service, a law practice, and a bold decision to pursue the craft of winemaking with his own artistic approach. 

His greatest accomplishments include convincing his wife to marry him, his two children Andrew and Audrey, and besides his wines, his prowess at growing tomatoes.

Chris Missick has produced dozens of 90+ wines, earned honors with his wines in major wine publications, pioneered Chenin Blanc in the Finger Lakes, and hosts the podcast VITI+CULTURE, where he talks with makers from all walks of life on how to cultivate a good life.  He is proud of the wines Texas is producing, and is honored to be a part of the Texas winemaking community.

(He may be this nation's only winemaker also admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States.)
