Set in the lush Texas Hill Country and surrounded on all sides by vineyards, Fall Creek is a stunning visual surprise. While the fermentation room holds the most modern of winemaking equipment, the oak casks reside in a room secured by antique stable doors from the Louis Pasteur Laboratory outside of Paris. The 400-acre growing site was selected and purchased in 1975 for its unique soil and climatic conditions, located on the northwest shores of immense Lake Buchanan in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. This complex soil is a result of alluvial soil from the Colorado River that eroded the limestone, sandstone and granite hills surrounding the valley where the vineyard is located. The proximity of an 8-mile expanse of Lake Buchanan adjacent to the Fall Creek Vineyards provides ideal nighttime cooling to produce optimum growing conditions. The sandy loam soil is ideal for growing premium grapes, with harvest occurring between late July and early October.
