Fall Creek Vineyards, which will mark 40 years in the Texas wine business next year, is opening its second location in Driftwood on Tuesday.
Susan Auler says that the tasting room, located across FM 1826 from Salt Lick Barbecue, will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week, with food from Austin chef David Garrido on opening day and then regularly on the weekends.
She adds that they are planting seven acres of grapes on the 17-acres site and will have some barrel aging at the Driftwood location.
The winery in Tow will remain open, but this second outpost will allow them to sell their wines, as well as products like the Fall Creek wine jelly and chenin blanc mustard, a little closer to the metro area. You can taste and buy the wines by the glass, bottle or case.
