Our Story

Michael and Raquel Lara began thinking about this venture many years ago. Their vision was to create a unique environment where family and friends could share life’s special moments in a private setting. The Lara’s were married in 1985 and have two wonderful sons: Michael and Samuel. Today, both sons are Firefighters/EMS Paramedics.. Once the boys became self-sufficient, Michael and Raquel began the journey of creating a unique vineyard. Before taking the full plunge, Michael started attending symposiums across the state learning the art and science of growing grapes in Texas. At the same time, Michael, with the help of his brother’s tractor, and many friends helped shaped the property and built structures that could help support the vineyard in the coming years. After being successful with the first plantings, additional vines were  planted to complete the vision.
