The Tres Hermanas Vineyard & Winery was founded in 2001 by Marvin & Paulette Teixeira with the planting of a small vineyard on their cattle ranch.
Tres Hermanas which means the Three Sisters, was named for their three daughters, Stacey, Tracey & Marcey.
Our label is a picture of the barn that exhibits the JT cattle brand, which was Marvin's fathers brand used to identify cattle today. The barn still exists on the winery property. The ranch is still headquarters for the family cattle operation.
Our first harvest was in the fall of 2003 with the tasting room opening in July of 2007.

Aged 30 months in French Oak Barrels. Big, ripe and tightly wound, with a range of black cherry, wild berry, currant, anise and prune notes. Turns elegant and polished on the finish.Purchase
Fully mature, this mouth filling supple wine has a savory side. With beefy notes of bouillon and soy, then adding leather coffee and mixed berries. The long finish gracefully blends sweet and savory, and then adds adjusting of fine tannins to keep everything in place.Purchase
There are slightly toasted notes here of chestnut or almonds followed by a blast of berry fruit and dark chocolate. The wine is crisp, polished and clean. The finish is marked by very refreshing acidity.Purchase
Deep ruby red in color. Dark fruits and spice dominate the nose with black cherry and plum out in front. Dusty herbs and sweet oak round out the very expressive nose. On the palate a core of cherry fruit with hints of pomegranate and figs is framed by round tannin and snappy acidity.Purchase
