Augusta Vin: New Texas Winery with Big Goals

View From The Tasting Room Over The Estate Vineyard

“Texas’ Premier Estate Winery” is what it says on Augusta Vin’s homepage. A bold claim for a winery that has only been in existence for 3 years. However, one visit will leave you in little doubt about owner Scott Felder’s seriousness. Conversations with people previously affiliated with the venture, including freelance consultant John Rivenburgh, confirmed this.

The first indication of Augusta Vin’s intent is in the scale of physical construction at the venue. The visitor drives in the main gate and then round a broad sweeping roadway that levels up into a straight shoot into the parking lot — 2,000 feet away. It was almost irresistible not to floor it on the empty morning that I visited. That would have been a mistake, for a number of reasons, but among them that I would have missed the labelling on each row of vines giving the name of the grape. Eleven varieties are planted at the estate and 6 at Hoover Valley Estate under long-term contract (hence warranting the ‘Estate’ designation). At present there are 60 planted estate acres and 40 more at Hoover Valley Estate. Little wonder that the drive in at the preferred 10 mph is reminiscent of entering a Tuscan estate.[…]

Wine Walk: Augusta Vin Winery sets the standard for opulence

Texas has a winery with trend setting facilities that has a “WOW” factor when you drive up to the winery.

As you enter the gates to Augusta Vin Winery from Texas 16, south of Fredericksburg, you travel down a two-lane asphalt road toward what appears to be a well-kept metal building. In reality, this building is the winery where the wines are vinified. The signs continue to direct you down a half mile of asphalt road to the north through well-manicured vineyard blocks of Tannat, Mouvedere, Albarino, Sagrantino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, and other grape varietals to a large, two-story building with a parking lot that is large enough to please any Buc-ee’s fan.
