Brushy Creek Vineyards

Brushy Creek Vineyards At Brushy Creek Vineyards, located in the historic Cross Timbers region of North Central Texas, we are experimenting with 36 different vines to develop quality wines as unique as Texas. Our grape-growing and winemaking philosophy is simple. We believe that what happens in the vineyard determines what happens in the bottle. It’s about growing the best grapes under the best possible conditions. It’s about being relentless in the pursuit of quality.

  Chardonnay
Chardonnay is usually dry, and goes best with poultry or seafood, like lobster or scallops. It can even go well with a light red meat dish.
  Merlot
This merlot is young but everyone keeps hounding me for wine made by me from my own grapes. This is it, but to be fair to the wine please let it rest for 6 months to two years. This wine was made using American Oak barrels for some wines I really want to use more French oak. I only made one barrel of this merlot from grapes grown just north of me by Howard and Amy at Oak Creek vineyards. It is much better than the Merlot from my own grapes but it is still a little young also.
  Sunset Red
Sunset Red is a sweet red table wine. Very popular served chilled with BBQ. Brushy Creek Vineyards serves sweet and dry wines of many different styles and types. Many of the wines are grown, harvested and made into wine on the premises while others are made from grapes from nearby vineyards. There are many small wineries across the state that are making great wine but are not big enough for that wine to be available through normal distribution channels. Our goal is to carry the best wines in Texas from these small vineyards with a special emphasis on less common grape varieties and styles.
  Texas Port
This Texas Port was made using the traditional Portuguese method. We used super ripe Cabernet Sauvignon (at 28% sugar) from the Texas High Lubbock) then as it was fermenting we added brandy to kill the yeast while the wine was still sweet. We did extensive trials with oak and learned that Hungarian Oak worked better than French or American Oak for this wine. I carry about 50 really great dry and sweet wines but this port was my best seller last month and it is fairly expensive at about $20/bottle. As a 2002 wine it is a little young but it should age well. Trois Amis means 3 Friends and refers to the three grapes that go into this blend. We believe that Rhone and Spanish grapes will eventually make the best wines in this area. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (which we had a lot of) and Shiraz and Mourvedre which we think make it very special. I refer to it as a Rhone flavored Cab. We made it using French oak and it is more ready to drink that our other red wines but still very young. We only made a barrel of this wine and it is nearly sold out but you can rest assured we will make more next harvest.

Even on a wintery-chilled windy day, this place is an awsome stop! I went with my daughter and one of her girlfriends while on a "Girls-day-out". We had a blast! Very nice people who are very knowledgable in the art of wine making. Which definitely complimented our our mood for wine drinking. LOL ;D Do yourself a favor and join their wine club!
