What a pleasant surprise, the owner winemaker led us thru a complete line tasting of some superbly made varietals, like cinsault, tannat, albarino, and mouverde. You will not find more enjoyable wines in CA in these varietals, thankfully Texas winemakers are not trying to be Bordeaux. Loved it.

Over the rocky roads and thru the countryside trees, to a new great winery destination we go! Great wine and great food will always bring good people together. Quintessentially, Saint Tryphon Farm & Vineyards is but one more fine example of someone daring to live the Texas Hill Country winery dream and proving it can be done in Boerne. Named after the 3rd century Christian Saint of all things related to wine and gardening, Saint Tryphon, owners Silouan and Mary Elizabeth Bradford have taken to heart what crafting great grapes from the land can do for producing wonderful wines. Impressed by Napa wineries, travels to Europe, and sound advice from local area winemaker Lewis Dickson, their dreams began to take root in 2013 with the purchase of their property in Boerne soon followed by Blanc du Bois vines being planted on the estate in 2016. The winery, which opened to the public in February 2018, has been serving some well-crafted wines to many happy wine lovers. They specialize in using natural wine fermenting techniques. Silouan’s winemaking style has yielded some incredible natural and great tasting selections. Most grapes are sourced from Farmhouse Vineyards from the Texas High Plains AVA. There are currently five wines for tasting. We started with the 2018 Albariño. Sourced from Newsom Vineyards, it had lovely notes of floral and melons. Their 2019 Mourvedre Rosé…wow! You will love the petals on the nose and watermelon notes with a very pretty color. For the first red, we tried the 2017 Mourvedre which is quite fruit forward and packing plum and cherry notes. The 2018 Tempranillo, sourced from Newsom Vineyards, is spicy with big acids, bold flavors, and a tantalizing fine finish. Like bubbly? No problem! Their 2018 Pét-Nat style sparkling is made from Orange Muscat with honeysuckle on the nose and tropical notes and citrus to delight the senses. Want more tastings? For sale but not on the tasting menu is the 2017 Blanc du Bois and 2018 Cinsaut Rosé. There are a few new wines coming out soon: a Tannat, an Aglianco blend, and another Cinsaut creation. Whether you choose the indoor or outdoor seating for your tasting, both have the right ambiance for sipping and taking it easy as you relax and enjoy your wines with your visit. The pool and big oak tree to the south makes a lovely picturesque scene as you look out over the Hill Country. It’s a bit of a winding road to get there, but you will be well rewarded with great hospitality and great wine for your efforts. Cheers!

Check the website to make sure they aren’t sold out. They say their wines are more expensive because they are made better but they aren’t. Not saying you shouldn’t taste for yourself if you are already headed to Sister Creek winery, but not worth going out of your way.

We visited here while in the Boerne area for our anniversary. It is about a ten minute drive out of the city. The gentleman who served us was very nice and informative (he was not the owner). The atmosphere is a little more formal that we normally enjoy but they weren't crowded so we decided to stay awhile. We each did a tasting and then each ordered a glass of wine. We were shocked that our total was $ 59.78! We should have asked prices before ordering but are frequent visitors to wineries and pretty accustomed to what we would consider normal pricing. We visited several other wineries while in the area and did not encounter the high pricing any where else and did not think their wine was worth the price. There is a wide variance in the amount of a pour between wineries and this one was very small. The photo attached is after one sip.
