Seifert Cellars

One the shores of sparkling Lake Ivie, just between the high plains and the hill country, we’re making wine for ourselves and our fellow Texans, with a sweetening start, and a tangy twist, and “just enough love from a Princess”.

We think that wine is like art, everyone has their own taste, and none is more right than another-only different.  With our Hot Texas summers lasting 8 months, give or take,– we realize that many of our fellow Texans prefer sweet or semi-sweet wine during this time.  Some folks in the industry may frown on this approach, but we’re from the school where “the customer is always right.”  So,– we hope to do just that—give our customers a choice of wines to drink, and let them decide what’s best.

P.S.  We make dry wines too!

Wine Tastings 2015 : Starlight, Sunset, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier.

Fifteen years later in 2004 they started their winery business in Texas. We’ve come a long way since the basement winemaking experiments in small batches to now with our stainless steel tanks and American & French oak barrels to be a large Texas winery. Bob has earned over twenty five medals for his wines, all of which were received from International wine competitions.

Fall Creek Vineyards

Fall Creek Vineyards

Fall Creek Vineyards was established in 1975 by Texas businessman/rancher, Ed Auler and his wife, Susan. The vineyards are located eighty miles northwest of Austin in the Texas Hill Country where the sandy loam soil, warm days and cool breezes off Lake Buchanan provide an excellent microclimate for growing premium wine grapes.

The inspiration for the winery came in 1973 when the Aulers, on a trip to France, noted remarkable similarities in the soil, terrain and microclimate of parts of the French wine country and their own ranch. “I became convinced that certain parts of the Texas Hill Country would be ideally suited to grape growing,” says Ed.

Today, Fall Creek is a living testament to Ed Auler’s early vision. After some brief experiments with French-American hybrid grape varieties, the winery has planted Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Semillon, Johannisberg Riesling, Shiraz, Tempranillo, Viognier and Malbec.

Fall Creek Vineyards is named after gorgeous, spring-fed Fall Creek, which flows through the Auler family’s ranch near the winery. Fall Creek empties into the Colorado River at the spectacular Fall Creek waterfalls. The 90-foot waterfalls have been a landmark since the time of early man and continue to be one today. Vanishing Texas River Cruise provides tours of the Fall Creek waterfalls daily.

In the last decade, a focus on red wines has led to the production of Meritus, a super-premium red wine. The late Andre Tchelistcheff, California’s wine authority who helped the Aulers analyze the potential of their Cabernet Sauvignon, gave high marks for their first efforts in Cabernet. “I think we can expect to see some fine reds from Fall Creek in the years to come,” said Tchelistcheff. Today, MERITUS has been hailed ‘the best wine made in the state of Texas’ by several noted wine critics.

2012 Fall Creek will be pouring: Cabernet, Merlot, Chenin Blanc, Ed’s Smooth Red, & Mission Sauvignon Blanc

2011 Fall Creek poured: Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Granite Reserve Cabernet, & Ed’s Smooth Red

2010 Fall Creek poured: Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet, & Ed’s Smooth Red
