Our Heirloom Wines are produced from our estate vineyard, planted 35 vintages ago by one of Texas' wine pioneers, Alfred J. Flies. Honored by the Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association on four separate occasions for his contributions to the Texas wine industry, his wines received over 70 wine competition medals including Top Texas Wine, various Double Gold, Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals from The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Wine Competition, and ten belt buckle awards, representing four International Best of Class honors and six Texas Best of Class.
Please note, we currently ship wines to Texas only.
Unique amongst grapes, muscadines thrive in the hot, humid bayous skirting the Sabine River. Here, America’s only native grape produces the most beautiful inky, violet aromatic wine best crafted dry, allowing the unique fruit flavors of muscadine to come forward.
Much like the goods traded along the Contraband Road, this full-bodied sweet red overflows with complexity. Dark and jammy cranberry with brandy like flavors give way to soft tannins and a long lingering finish of flowers, fresh and dried flowers, and citrus zest.
Established as Neutral Ground in 1806 after years of border feuds between Spain and the US, western Louisiana beckoned to outlaws and pioneers alike. Harboring both exiles and adventurers, this lawless haven was dubbed the Devil's Playground. Equally diverse and complex, this wine delights with layers of velvety chocolate and rich peanut flavors.
Essential to America’s wine-making legacy since the mid-1500s, muscadines are commonly crafted into lush dessert-style wines. But our rebellious semi-dry, full-bodied Eighteen-oh-Six bursts with intense aromas of ripe bananas and apples with subtle hints of lime, honeydew, and white flowers. Winner of both the Top Texas Wine and International Best of Class awards at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Wine Competition.
Few grapes express such bold and distinctive flavors as muscadines. This sweet dessert-style wine boasts ripe apple and banana aromas followed by subtle notes of bright lime and peony. Aromatic and richly flavored, this fruit-forward sweet white will compliment everything from honeyed fruit tarts to the spiciest crawfish étouffée.
The charismatic outlaw John Murrell earned his nickname, the Reverend Devil, by preaching sweet salvation at tent revivals while his marauding Mystic Clan robbed the congregation blind during the years of the Free State of Sabine. His legendary hidden hoard tempts treasure hunters to this day. Equally tempting - this sinfully sweet red wine boldly infused with cherries and divine dark chocolate.
Patriot or pirate, few American legends spellbind like the lore of the infamous Lafitte Brothers, Pierre and Jean, known frequenters of the Neutral Zone in the early 1800's. This sweet yet smooth red wine with juicy notes of strawberries and luscious chocolate evokes the glittering surfaces of the Red, Calcasieu and Sabine Rivers, havens in the Free State of Sabine.
