A 2-acre vineyard was planted in 1984 and expanded to approximately six acres of hybrid native Muscadine grapes. The winery also began with 50% fruit wines, but because of the problem of acquiring the quality of fruit in the quantity required the wines have been replaced with four new, extremely popular Designer Wines, while improving the nine Muscadine wines, which includes Champagne and Ports. Piney Woods is located just two blocks off of I-10, between Beaumont, TX and the casinos of Louisiana. The tasting room is open Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
