Family owned and operated Blue Ostrich Winery & Vineyard. For many years this facility was one of the foremost ostrich breeding and ranching facilities in the southwest. The structure that houses our winery, tasting room and corporate offices was once filled with ostrich eggs, chicks and fledglings. The acreage to the west that nurtures our Tempranillo, Viognier and Cabernet grapevines was the same hillside where hundreds of 7 foot tall ostrich roamed during the 80’s and 90’s.
As our ostrich ranching adventure drew to a close and we relinquished our herd, the future of the seven birds remaining was uncertain….. until we needed a name for our winery and vineyard. Today our feathered friends not only adorn the Blue Ostrich label , they also function as as our official winery mascots and welcome you to our beautiful Red River Valley.

Briar Creek Vineyards came into being because of a true delight in the romance of wine and the love of all things Texas. After medical school, Don and Donna Freeman moved from their roots in Texas to California for training. We fell in love with the whole production of wine – from growing seasons to harvest, to processing, and of course, tasting the nuances of all the flavors in grapes. After training and building our family (4 beautiful children) we returned to Texas in 1983, established a home and practice, and have been the benefactors of God’s grace and blessings in the Lone Star State! Still enamored with the romance of wine and the land in Texas, in 2006 we moved from “the city” to “country life”. We built our home on 56 acres located SE of Tyler on Briar Branch of Mud Creek and planted 2-1/2 acres of classic vinifera. We have experienced the challenges of a farmer, especially in Texas, as well as the many blessings of God and nature. We invite you to experience the Texas version of wine-making…

Homestead Winery is the oldest continuously operating winery in the Red River Valley. In 1983, grapes replaced the traditional wheat and corn, and the vineyard at Ivanhoe was started. The great Cabernet Sauvignon grape does extremely well in the sandy Ivanhoe soil. In 1989, the winery was bonded and produced its first vintage. Today, production continues to expand and grapes are also purchased from other growers to produce the wide varieties of wines that Homestead offers. The Denison tasting room is continuing to expand in the historic downtown area. Sherry, Port and Red Wine are scheduled for production at the facility, while major crush and wine-making operations are still located at the vineyard and winery in Ivanhoe.

Valley Mills Vineyards Winery lies in the heart of Texas, in Waco. Our hillside vineyard features European varietals which highly favor the rocky soil. Six grape varieties, representing France, Italy, and Spain are personally managed by the principal owners. Though the main vineyard is nearby in Valley Mills, the production winery and tasting room are located in an easily-accessible location in Waco. Don’t let the newness of VMV Winery fool you – our estate wines have origins as far back as 2008, with later vintages being released regularly. We insist on using the best fruit, and we age our wines in American and French oak barrels, resulting in a sensory experience which is both memorable and delightful.
