Our Team

Prime Living - The Luxury Lifestyle magazine of Texas has named Driftwood Estate Winery as the Winner for Best Texas Wine in their annual Readers' Choice Awards.
In addition to this prestigious honour we also received the saddle trophy from the Houston Livestock Show International Wine Competition for "Top Texas Wine"

January 2023 in San Francisco in what many believe is America’s wine city of choice. The San Francisco Chronicle hosts a well-respected wine competition using mostly California wine judges. Twelve unknown Texas wines took top varietal wines besting those well-known California wines. This is big since these unknowns from Texas beat out the best that California had to offer. Those 12 included:

• Driftwood Estate Winery 2022 Dry Rose (blend)
• Driftwood Estate Winery 2019 Syrah
• Driftwood Estate Winery 2019 Alamo Red (red blend)
