Rising Star Vineyards


We’re the sort of people that you describe, when you’re being polite, as “individuals”. We do tend to go our own way, so I guess it isn’t surprising that our labels are a little bit different, too. Okay, okay, so maybe they’re a lot different, but we wanted something you were likely to recognize when you saw it a second time. We think we’ve designed labels that reflect our individuality and our love for the place where we make our wines, and does it in a way you may just remember.

Rising Star will be bringing –


Wiseman House Chocolates

What makes our chocolates unique?

The answer is simple: real chocolate from origins such as Belgium and Venezuela, fresh ingredients like whipping cream and chopped fruits, natural flavors like crushed coffee beans, all combined with unique liqueurs and spices. We leave out added sugars, glutens, sodium nitrates, and trans fats. The result is a full rich flavor profile, smoother texture, and an indescribable taste. 

Our fine handmade chocolates you will take you back in time, as you enjoy the same richness and flavor that inspired the Ancient Mayans to revere chocolate as the nectar of the gods.

Art Schoenig co.

Each of my pieces is hand made using a mixture techniques. I learned a great deal about traditional metal work while apprenticed to an armor maker in Scotland. I have also developed many techniques. I have a strong emphasis on using native Texas gem stones many of which I collect across the state as rough rock. My work is very unique and after twenty years as an artist I have a strong following of clients.

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!
