King Family Vineyards has a heartwarming family business story. The Kings moved to the area in 1995 with their three sons from Houston, Texas. They purchased the original 327 acre farm in 1996. Soon after, a young man knocked on their door and asked if he could lease ten acres for a vineyard. Sparked by his curiosity and research, the family did their homework, and soon hired a vineyard consultant. Six months of hard work later, they had their first eight acres of vines had been planted. Their initial plan was to sell the fruit, but after becoming interested in learning as much as possible, they decided to make wine with a portion of the harvest! After a quick visit to California for ideas, they designed the winery on the back of a napkin. Since then both the vineyard and the business have grown.
The King’s three sons help manage the vineyard now. The late owner, David King, continues to leave his legacy in more than one way, but his love of polo which continues on at King Family Vineyards.
