SAN SABA — Pecans are the cash crop around here, the Pecan Capital of the World, which is also known for the weekly Jordan Cattle Auction.

Located at the intersection of U.S. 190 and Texas 16, cars whiz through the city on their way to and from Dallas or Austin, without giving it much thought.

But the restoration of historical downtown buildings and the newly opened Wedding Oak Winery are giving drivers a reason to stop.

The winery’s tasting room was built inside a beautifully restored 1926 structure that sits on the northern edge of the Texas Hill Country American Viticultural Area.

The two adjacent lots were purchased to build the production facility that allows for up to 10,000 cases of wine. The winery will produce 3,500 cases this year, only its second bottling. The extra space allows it to help other wineries with production.

McHenry has been growing grapes in San Saba for 12 years.

“We built the winery to the size we wanted, and now we’re growing into it. We knew we’d get one good shot at doing this right,” managing partner and general manager Mike McHenry says.
