Seifert Cellars and Wild West Vines began in 2005 as a dream to grow quality grapes and produce quality wine in the Concho Valley region of West Texas.

After producing wine from other vineyards’ grapes for a number of years, we decided that we would try it on our own. Our first plantings of Lenoir Grapes brought to Texas by Spanish Missionaries in the 1600s, gave us the confidence that our dreams could be realized on the shores of Lake Ivie.

We currently have nine acres under cultivation with well water drip irrigation, a vertical shoot position trellis system and a high fence surrounding the entire vineyard. We are growing various grape varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, Riesling, Syrah, Vermentino, Chenin Blanc, and Tempranillo.

During our “Startup” phase, we have had to contend with numerous and varied challenges, including the usual suspects of predators (deer, rabbits, raccoons, birds), pests, grasshoppers, mold, herbicide drift, and weeds. Then there is the weather (drought, hail, freezes), various labor issues, and of course the constant tractor and equipment malfunctions. Despite these various “setbacks”, we are determined to succeed – or die to try. Why? — Because we’re from Texas, of course.

There may be easier places to grow grapes,

There may be more famous places to grow grapes,

There may be a lot of places other people grow grapes,

BUT THEY AIN’T TEXAS!!
