History

In 2007 when Wayne, and his wife Carol purchased 30 acres of land that sits on a portion of the famous Evans Ranch, they had a dream of building their own Winery. In 2011, that dream was realized when they opened Kerrville Hills Winery.

Taking great measures to preserve the history of the property, they built the winery on top of the original house built on the land, careful to preserve the original masonry brick fireplace that was still in-tact after a fire in 2004. Repurposed sheet metal from the original barn roof was used inside the Tasting room of the winery to give the large room a rustic and elegant feel. They created a wine production facility filled with state-of-the-art equipment to create several unique, award-winning wines. After three years of design and construction, they were finally able to open their doors on Labor Day 2011, and have been in operation ever since.

Kerrville Hills Winery is Kerrville’s first winery. Since its inception it has been a favorite destination for travelers and Hill Country residents alike. The couple has decided to retire and therefore have decided to sell the Kerrville Hills Winery.
