Mark's comments are mine as well. I visited the winery about the same time and had to wait given the number of customers waiting for a tasting. I enjoyed their reds but was mmm maybe next time the cost was rather high. I look forward to an off season visit soon and see what's new

William Chris Vineyards is a new winery, only about a year old, on Hwy. 290 not far from Fredericksburg, TX. Because they are just starting out, their facilities are small, the winery is small, and they had only four wines for tasting. The tasting room is a very old, restored house, once owned by friends of LBJ as a youth. It is *very* rustic, but charming. For four tastes, the cost was rather steep, but made up for if you bought a couple of bottles of their wines (which were also not cheap). The staff at the tasting room were personable and helpful. The wines themselves were very good. I tried the "Enchanté," which is a mix of reds. It was good, but for my taste not as good as the Merlot, which was excellent, a fruit forward dry red. I was impressed with the "Cebola," a Muscato fortified with Brandy, obviously a desert wine. The "Mary Ruth," a semi-dry white, I found quite good. I had heard excellent reviews of their wines. For the most part, they lived up to their billing. Their production is quite low—I think I heard 3000 cases this past year—so, a small winery, with small output, but an excellent boutique winery, worth the visit, and with a great future!
