Texas Cheese House

Texas Cheese House is dedicated to the principle that excellent cheese is manufactured in Texas. We carry Texas Artisan Foods from a number of Texas producers.
Our cheeses contain all the full flavors that can best be experienced by stopping by our store and sampling your favorite cheese. Texas artisan cheese making is growing. We create cheese that is wholesome and natural with no added fillers or preservative. The milk we use to make the cheese is hormone and antibiotic free. We support the Texas Department of Agriculture and Dairy Division and are in full compliance of rules, standards and laws deemed to ensure a safe cheese. We do not add dyes to our cheese and our rennet is not from animal source.
Most recently, we have added the fine handmade chocolates and truffles to our store from the Wiseman House Chocolates in Hico, Texas. We have fudge, caramel clusters, almond bark, truffles, toffee, and sipping chocolate.
We are located in the historic district of downtown Lorena, 10 miles south of Waco, TX on Interstate 35.

We are a Texas winery located near Waco, Texas, about 100 miles south of Dallas, and just 100 miles north of Austin, Texas. Waco Winery is a family owned boutique Texas winery making authentic Texas wines as well as a few exotic varieties of wine.

We started our operations in March of 1997 when we planted the first of four vineyards.  Since then we have increased our plantings every year and we opened our winery to the public in 2006.   Today we are offering a number of unique Texas Wines for sale at the winery and an exciting wine club.  We invite you to visit us for tours and tastings every day except Sunday.

Pillar Bluff Vineyards

Pillar Bluff Vineyards received its bonding license in 1999 and opened the   tasting room in 2002. Currently, they are producing 1,200 to 1,400 cases each   year.

The tasting room is delightfully small with a wood tasting   counter. The Tuscan yellow walls provide a warm feeling. A number of gift items   are available for purchase. These include Riedel glasses, wine bags, cheese   trays, wine bottle carriers, picnic bags and wine bottle tags.

A gazebo outside of the tasting room provides a great location   for events among the vines. Gill has music events scheduled for every second   Saturday throughout the year. The winery also has a Celtic event every Solstice.   The pavilion is the site for weddings and other private events. Gill related the   most satisfying day he ever had. As he looked towards the large gazebo, two or   three couples were enjoying themselves and someone spontaneously picked up a   guitar and started playing. What more can one ask for than a delightful   afternoon in a vineyard with the gentle sound of music?
