We have made it our mission to produce quality, unique Texas wines from classic wine grapes grown primarily in our vineyards. We offer these wines only in our tasting room for your enjoyment in the beautiful, scenic and memorable setting amidst our vineyards. Our emphasis is on the quality of our wine and your experience when you visit us.
Off-Dry White Wines
So named because its lead grape, Chenin Blanc, was grown at Grand Oaks in one of our vineyards named for our middle daughter, Lauren. Chenin Blanc originated in the Loire Valley of France and is today one of the premier grapes of that region. It is known as one of the most adaptable white grapes in the world due to its ability to take on different characteristics based on where it is grown and how it is used by the winemaker. We have taken a dry wine made from our grapes and blended it with a sweet Blanc du Bois producing an off-dry wine with aromas and flavors of fruit, honey and quince. Pair this beautiful white, well chilled, with poultry, pork or seafood or enjoy it standalone.
Dry Red Wines
Padres’ Mesa Red
This dry red table wine is a proprietary blend created here at Grand Oaks Winery. Its lead grape is Lenoir, aka Texas Black Spanish, known for its dark purple, almost black color and its unique red juice at crush. After softening Lenoir with Merlot, we add a carefully tested amount of Tempranillo for that taste of Old Spain; including flavors of berries, plum and tobacco. Finally a touch of our Blanc Du Bois lightens the wine and adds fruit to the aroma.
Semi-Sweet Red Wines
C y M Sweet Temper
The result of our efforts to capture the balance of the two primary cultures of Spain, the Christians and the Moors, which have permeated the history of Spain over the last 500 years. We’ve merged the wines from our Tempranillo and Mourvedre grapes to capture this culture in this blend. When it is sweetened with Black Spanish and a small amount of Blanc du Bois, you have a semi-sweet red wine rich in aromas and flavors of blackberry, black plum, herbs and spices. We believe we have created a balanced semi-sweet red which Texans will fall in love with.
Semi-Sweet White Wines
G. O. Tweet
A wonderfully semi-sweet blend of Blanc du Bois, Viognier and Muscat Cannelli. This fine wine bursts with the flavors and aromas of fruits such as pear, peach, green apples, lemon and grapefruit. Blanc du Bois is a true American hybrid developed in Florida, so it flourishes in the hot humid climates of East Texas. We have 500 of these vines which are proving to be the most productive vines in our vineyards. Enjoy this aromatic wine either standalone, as a dessert wine or paired with foods that require the balance of a sweeter wine. We think you’ll love it and will want to TWEET about it to all your friends.
