Bob and Jeanne Cottle began as home wine makers in the early 1970's in their respective states of Rhode Island and Wisconsin. A lovely piece of land with rolling hills was purchased in Brenham and in 1997, Pleasant Hill Winery opened its doors as Texas' 27th commercial winery. Both families' grandparents came from Italy and made wine. The Corsetti and Zaffiro family winepresses are now proudly displayed in the winery. A dozen award-winning wines are produced featuring Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc - and from vineyards all over the great state of Texas. Visitors are welcome to tour, taste and browse the well-stocked gift shop on weekends year-round. Located between Houston and Austin, Pleasant Hill is the perfect meeting place for family and friends. Pleasant Hill is proud to be a member of the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail.
