The Duchman Family Winery was founded in 2004 by Drs. Lisa and Stan Duchman in a quest to bring world-class winemaking to Central Texas and the Texas Hill Country. Their love of the unique Italian grape varieties as well as similar weather patterns to Texas inspired them to work with viticultural consultant Bobby Cox and growers in the Texas High Planes AVA to produce grapes that would allow their winemakers, Dave Reilly and Mark Penna, to experiment with making wines like Vermentino, Sangiovese, and Dolcetto.The winery continues to source the majority of its fruit from the Texas High Plains AVA, where cooler temperatures and a more “continental” climate are ideal for the production of fine wine made from Italian grape varieties. As the winery grows, the Duchmans remain committed to their goal to produce food-friendly fine wine in Central Texas using Texas-grown fruit exclusively. With an eye on the future, Duchman Family Winery continues to develop innovative winemaking and grape growing techniques in order to provide wine that truly reflects a taste of Texas for years to come.Duchman Family Winery remains one of the top wine destinations in Texas. All of the winery’s current releases can be sampled and purchased at the winery’s tasting room and the estate’s beautiful Italianate villa and grounds are open to visitors who can enjoy their wines with a picnic lunch! We have picnic tables outdoors in the shade of the oaks, or pick a cozy spot inside the winery hallway with a windowed view into the barrel room, fermentation tank, or production area for bottling and labeling of our wines.

Although my wife and I are both wine novices we decided to visit the Duchman Winery in Driftwood for a tasting and to spend the evening. We were greeted by Tina our server who was kind and informative. She told us about each of the red wines in our flight and gave us a little bit of the history of... More

Went for a special occasion with a large group. Paid extra for a "private room" which turned out to be a large party hall with other groups at their own tables. Sampled six wines with decent pours, but the girl working our group was very disinterested and never talked about any of the wines. The included tour was literally a... More

I recently visited Duchman (as well as several other wineries in the hill country) on outing with my wife. It is a beautiful facility with definite Italian feel. The tasting room was quite busy when we were there. In spite of it being so busy, staff did a great job of attending to each customer. I appreciated that they provided... More

Like that the grapes are next to the winery. The Italian restaurant next door to the tasting room seems to get all of the attention but it is not currently a part of the winery. There are large grassy areas for the kids to play and you can get bags for corn hole inside when you trade for your license.... More

Tried a selection of their wines and was not disappointed with any of them We are wine snobs, from the Niagara region of Canada, so we are picky about wine. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful and took the time to engage in discussion about the various varietals we were sampling. We were very impressed and bought a bottle... More

The wine was good but the place was crowded and so loud it gave me a headache. This was our 3rd winery and some snack offerings would have been nice.

After visiting 5 or 6 wineries in the area, we decided to become wine members here. The people are nice, the wine is good, and the location is incredible. They have games out front and a large tasting room where members get a complimentary glass of wine each visit.
