What Makes This Place Different?

Stone House Vineyard distinguishes itself with its uniquely beautiful location on a high bluff overlooking Lake Travis, providing breathtaking views that complement its fine wines.

My Wine Pick

During my visit, the standout wine was their distinctive signature estate wine, Claros, made from the Norton grape, a variety native to the area. At $35, this wine with its deep color and complex flavors, truly captures the local terroir and showcases the vineyard’s dedication to producing distinctive Texas wines.

History and Facility

Stone House Vineyard not only revels in its beautiful setting but also boasts a rich history intertwined with a passion for winemaking. Established with a vision to combine traditional and innovative techniques, the winery features state-of-the-art facilities that support sustainable viticulture practices. The elegant tasting room and the meticulous vineyards reflect their commitment to quality and hospitality.

Wine is produced from their estate vineyards, but most of the wines are from their vineyard and production facility in Australia (Barossa Valley). The wine from Australia is produced there, but only sold in the Stone Creek Vineyard tasting room. Additionally, they have a little production done in NAPA and Russian River Valley (California).
