The 2019 Tall in Texas award recipient is Spicewood Vineyards. Originally founded in 1992 by Edward and Madeleine Manigold, the goal of Spicewood Vineyards was to produce wines made only with estate-grown grapes. In 2007 Ron Yates, took the helm when he purchased the winery. The Yates family continues the tradition of making fine wines that have won state, regional, national and international competitions. Nine of the original 17 acres of vines still produce excellent fruit on vines that are over 24 years old. The winery has eventually expanded to include 32 planted acres and grows several varieties of wine grapes including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Tempranillo. Todd Crowell has been Spicewood’s wine maker since 2012. A native Texan, he loves the connection with the land and believes in the philosophy that great wine starts in the vineyard. Spicewood Vineyards is known for their award-winning wines that are timeless in their appeal and unique flavor of the Texas Hill Country.
