Sixty acres of vineyards produce the all estate-grown red and white wines that capture Old World style along side Texas pride. Hand planted in 1998 and 1999, the vineyards are the passion of the de Wet family of Tyler. Our winemaking philosophy is to take the fruit from each vintage and tell the story of that year. We do so by highlighting and complimenting the characteristics that the fruit has to offer. In growing and making Kiepersol wines, we strive to make the most approachable, comfortable, well balanced wines that still have complexity of flavors and supple tannin structures.
