When & Where
Located on a hill which is one of the highest elevation points in Collin County Texas, Wales Manor Winery & Vineyard has continued its role of supporting the Texas Wine Industry by helping establish additional vineyards in Collin County.
The Texas Wine Industry has a rich history of which many are not aware. The history can be traced back to 1662 when the first vineyard and winery was established by Franciscan priests at the 'Mission of Ysleta' near El Paso. Texas presently ranks 5th as the largest wine producer, by volume, in the United States.
Wales Manor Winery & Vineyard again added to the Texas tradition when it opened the first commercial winery in Collin County, TX in 2003. From its humble beginnings as the first commercial winery / vineyard on Collin County, Wales Manor is now one of numerous local wineries.
During 2003, the owners of Wales Manor and Triple 'R' Ranch Wineries combined efforts and formed Lone Star Wine Cellars, which is located in the Ritz Building right in the heart of Historic Downtown McKinney, TX. Specializing in tastings and sales. Lone Stars Wine Cellars was the first collaborative effort in Texas involving 2 separately owned wineries.
We are excited about the past, present, and future of the Texas Wine Industry and the role Wales Manor will continue to play in its history and growth. Our commitment to you is producing affordable wines that meet the quality standards deserving the stamp of TEXAS. We take pride in the production of our wines here at Wales Manor, striving to provide our customers & guests with an abundant wine selection that reflects and encompasses all that is great about the wonderful State of Texas.
Our selection of wines
Wales Manor offers a wide variety of wines to satisfy almost every palate. We, along with most all wine experts,ï¿½strongly believe that a good wine starts in the vineyard with freshly harvested grapes (no concentrate). We do not hide the flaws in wines by the addition of flavoring, artificial additives, or sweeteners. Although Wales Manor owns an estate vineyard, it takes a lot of grapes to meet our production demands. From North, South, Central, East and West Texas, we are constantly seeking to sign grape contracts to fulfill our needs for Texas Grapes. Only the best vineyards in Texas are given contracts to sell fruit to Wales Manor. Again, a good wine starts in the vineyard! » Learn more about Wales Manor's wine selection.
