4.0 cellars is a unique adventure in Texas winemaking with a mix of 3 different wineries and 3 different styles of wine making. 4.0 Cellars is making high-quality wines with grapevines that are proving themselves in the Texas climate.
“Our dedication was the common thread between us all and what brought us together to grow a second Napa,” so they said.
Three vineyards joined forces to make quality Texas wine and quality Texas food. Together with three Texas winemakers – Pat Brennan of Brennan Vineyards, Gene Estes of Lost Oak Winery, and Kim McPherson of McPherson Cellars – all began exploring the idea of opening a winery in Fredericksburg, in the heart of Texas wine country. And so it began, they added a tasting room in Fredericksburg to get their grapes to the masses on the Hill Country wine trail. A little sideways with a contemporary atmosphere different from many other wineries on the Texas wine trail.
Doc McPherson started growing grapes up on the high plains of Texas in 1968. McPherson and another Tech professor founded Llano Estacado Winery in 1976. Just like the hills of Tuscany, they have a large percentage of Sangiovese wine.
Brennan Vineyards was started in a historic home south of Fort Worth in Camanche, Texas. What started as a 5-acre grape vineyard grew into a winery and tasting room where they use their own grapes along with other Texas-grown grapes to make their award-winning wine.
Lost Oak Winery was started by a college microbiologist who had a garage batch of wine that, as any good scientist would have it, exploded in the garage. This was only the beginning for the winemaker who started his first vineyard in 1989 and soon after the winery in Burleson, Texas. They host many concerts, outdoor movies on the lawn and could be a picturesque wedding venue. The grapes they grow on their estate include Tempranillo, Shiraz, Blanc du Bois, an Italian white wine called Malvasia Bianca, Ruby Cabernet, and Chardonel.
Three diverse areas within Texas bring you different tastes to experience in one location. A collaboration that will bring you wines you can hang your hat on.
