La Cruz de Comal is collaboration between two long-standing friends, California winemaker Tony Coturri and Texas lawyer and wine enthusiast, Lewis Dickson. Nic Coturri, Tony's son, is instrumental to the harvest and crush, as is long-time Houston restaurateur, Bill Johnson, who also helps with sales.
We are located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, often referred to as "The Provence of Texas". The small winery and case storage facility buried in the limestone hillside are near the town of Startzville, not far from Canyon Lake. From New Braunfels, the drive takes about 15 minutes.
La Cruz de Comal became a bonded winery in 2004. In 2001-2002, a few precious barrels of authentic Texas wine were made by Tony and Lewis at nearby Dry Comal Creek Vineyards & Winery. We again thank our good friends, Bonnie and Franklin Houser of Dry Comal Creek, for opening their doors to us.
