NVV’s winery is a unique facility that represents the grit and spice of East Texas in combining a modern design with vintage touches.
A modest building, it is surrounded by a variety of trees. The building itself is a 2,000 square foot facility which houses a tasting room, winemaking facility, winery lab, wine storage and office areas. Inside the wine production area are modern stainless steel tanks and bottling equipment.
The tasting room is a modified version of the decorated pioneer style encompassing a rustic design with Victorian style wrought iron embellishments. The bar in the tasting room was constructed from the wood of an antique oak desk, complete with a large ink stain, that sat in Buzz’s grandparents’ antique store in Jefferson, Texas, for many years. It was finished with reclaimed wood from
a century-old home in East Texas. The style is replicated at the entrance with two dramatic vintage wrought iron fixtures featuring grape leaf embellishments and a wood deck for viewing comfort under the large Sweetgum shade tree. The tasting room is furnished with tables, wine display racks and other woodwork crafted by Kemit Mouton, a family member.
The tasting room will be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays. We are happy to arrange other tastings for individuals or groups by calling 936-615-9394.
Guests will be able to enjoy an escorted walking tour of the vineyard and production room in the winery when extra staff is available. Tours are free. Viewing of the winemaking operation is also accessible from the tasting room.
No outside food, drink or open containers of any kind are allowed. TABC liquor laws are strictly enforced.
