Sixty-one acres of vineyards produce 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. This is our key to creating comfortable wines that showcase our terroir.

Tasting Room

Kiepersol’s tasting room is located at the top of the rolling vineyard and features tastings of all our current wine selections and a gift shop. All tastings are $1.00 for a 1-ounce pour of wine. The gift shop is stocked with hard to find wine accessories, glassware, and Kiepersol-related gifts and goodies. We welcome you to engage in wine tastings, tours of the winemaking process, and to relax on the veranda overlooking the expansive vista of the vineyard


Guided tours through the winery processing facility are available Saturday at 2:00 and 4:00 for $5 per person. Private tours can be booked for $10 per person ($40 minimum) at other times depending upon staff availability. Tours last approximately thirty minutes. Try to wear flat, comfortable shoes.
