The Westcave Cellars story is the great love story of Texas Hill Country Wineries. It is the embodiment of the love of two people who share an appreciation of hard work and an enjoyment of fine wine. It is also a space to share with the community the love of viticulture. Westcave Cellars Winery and vineyard is an invitation to share in the experience and the love, one taste at a time.
Texas Wine, Texas Hospitality, Texas Hill Country
From the very beginning of their marriage, Margaret and Allan Fetty took pleasure in tending their garden together and sharing the fruits of their labor with each other, as well as with their friends and family. Over time, this hobby paved the way to embracing their true calling- growing and tending their own vineyard. Once they felt confident in their growing methods, and their ability to optimize the potential of the land, they began searching the winding roads of the Texas Hill Country for the perfect site to grow their vines. In 1997, they found the ideal location to realize their dream, just a stone’s throw from Westcave Preserve and Hamilton Pool Preserve, and in 1999 they planted their first 3 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vines.
After supplying local wine makers with grapes for a few years, Margaret and Allan began crafting their own unique wine, made in the old-world style and strongly influenced by the French traditions. The vineyard has expanded to 9 acres of matured vines, lovingly tended to by hand. These 8,000 vines include 9 different varieties of grapes, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Tannat, Malbec, Vermentino, and Viognier. The Westcave Cellars Winery opened its doors in 2011, creating a community space to soothe the soul and engage the senses. This winery near Austin and Dripping Springs features a tasting room, a wine shop, and a stunning outdoor space that overlooks the manicured vineyards. Bring a picnic and enjoy live music on Sundays from 2-5pm under the glorious old oak trees.
Guests are invited to experience these fine 100% Texas wines on site as well as remotely by participating in the celebrated Westcave Cellars wine club. This adventure in viticulture offers a variety in styles designed to please the palate and enliven the imagination. Visitors enjoy analyzing the rich aromas and delicious flavor profile of each glass of wine through the wine tastings held in the winery, led by knowledgeable and hospitable staff.
Allan, Margaret and the Westcave Team welcomes you to come share the love- the love of the natural beauty of Central Texas, the love of community, and the love of wine. For Hill Country Wine Tours and tasting opportunities, the Westcave Cellars Winery and vineyards family looks forward to your visit.
