Now one of the largest vineyards in the Texas Gulf Coast Region, West Sandy Creek includes Tempranillo grapes in addition to the Blanc du Bois and Lenoir plantings. The latter two were chosen for their resistance to Pierce’s disease, a common vineyard problem that is made worse by the south Texas climate. We’re especially proud of our 12 acres of Blanc du Bois grapes, which were developed by a Texan in a University of Florida lab in 1968.
The grapes are harvested once a year, usually in July, and in 2018 our yield was more than 65,000 pounds of grapes, all harvested by hand by family and staff.
Our tasting room is open Thursday – Sunday from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. Contact us at info@WSCWinery.com for more information.
