The Maxwell Family members are 4th and 5th generation Texans, whose family has been farming and making wine here for more than 100 years. Ken remembers as a boy picking the wild grapes that grew along his family's farms near Ft. Worth. His Great-grandfather, Grandfather, and Father taught him the family traditions of wine making. Ken has recently left the Semiconductor Industry, after twenty-five years to bring the Maxwell Family traditions of wine making to your home. Our Vineyards are located in Doss and Fredericksburg - the heart of the Texas Hill Country American Viticultural Area. Here our vines thrive in the calcareous soils, seasonal rains, and sunshine to produce a rich complexity of flavors. – Description from Alejandro

    Wine review by Shirleydupont

  • Just thought I'd add a little something to the "wine I would not drink ... there. Another stop was at Torre di Pietra Vineyards. Here is where I got my true introduction to the Texas wine tasting philosophy. I was sampling a 2012 Sangiovese from a vineyard in Blanco county. I noticed that the wine was extremely cloudy and had the nose of a wet ... Read More

  • Torre di Pietra Blanc du Bois Texas Hill Country 2008


    Crisp, light wine with great grown in Texas. A nose of baked apple pie and hints of honey on the palate intermixed in a mineral, creamy finish. Full bodied and fairly balanced. Read More

  • Torre di Pietra Red Blend Texas Hill Country Midnight Nymph 2010


    Interesting Texas blend of Black Spanish and Touriga Nacional grapes, the later commonly used to make Port. Aromas of spice and berry. Medium to full bodied with hints of cranberries and a touch of oak amongst young, playful tannins. Read More

  • Torre di Pietra Sangiovese Blend Texas Hill Country Amore de Tuscano NV


    A Texas Super Tuscan? Very interesting and surprisingly well blended. Subtle aromas of red berry. Light to medium bodied with hints of black cherries and soft, youthful tannins. Worth your time. Read More

  • Torre di Pietra Sangiovese Blend Texas Hill Country Amore de Tuscano 2005


    I'm surprised a wine this good comes from west Texas. A super Tuscan style wine, being a blend of Sangiovese, Cab Sauvignon, and Syrah. Faint aromas of black cherries on the nose, but mostly what I get is a beautiful smokiness and creamy vanilla, with just a hint of rich caramel. I would call this one of the best wines in Texas. Nice and ple... Read More

  • Wonderful Wines , LOVE the Primitivo 2006 and Black Spanish 2009. We had a wonderful day at the winery enjoying the laid back atmosphere and the conversation with the two girls behind the bar. Who were very informative on the winery itself as well as grapes and wines produced in Texas. We will be back for many trips and more bottles.

  • As world wine travelers that have visited vineyards all over the world including Napa, Sonoma, Sienna Italy, we wanted to experience Texas wine.... boy was the wine bad and so was the server's attitude, at least they were consistent. We were there because we purchased Texas Wine Trail, when we showed our ticket we were sent to the outdoors with ...

  • While discussing pruning techniques with a chap in Texas he told me he has just planted a small vineyard with LeNoir and Blanc du Bois.  I have absolutely no idea what type of wine these grapes might produce.  I presume they are hybrid, developed for disease resistance?  Can anyone shed some light on this - can they make quality wine?  Read More
