In 1993, Dick and Julie Holmberg purchased a beautiful, peaceful ranch near Comfort, Texas. Inspired by their love of wine and travels to major wine regions, they studied the feasibility of planting a vineyard in these rolling hills.
The first Merlot vines were planted in 1998, with the notion that superior, handcrafted wines are best enjoyed in the serenity of nature and shared with dear friends. Within a few years, what started out as making a little wine for family and friends grew into a bonded winery. Then, in 2004, the Holmbergs introduced their own label, Singing Water Vineyards wines.
The next step was to create a unique tasting room that reflected the Texas landscape. The original Singing Water tasting room is an historic Texas Hill Country barn, which has been painstakingly refurbished. The grounds were renovated to highlight the peaceful beauty of the land.
Today, Singing Water Vineyards cultivates 6 acres of vineyards. In addition to Merlot, the Holmbergs have planted Pinot Grigio, Syrah, Montepulciano, and Sangiovese. They have also added Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes from other growers in the area to expand their line of Singing Water Vineyards wines.
With Dick, Julie, their daughter Ann and her husband Mark dedicated to the family business, their dream continues to grow. Along with an amazing management team and friendly tasting room staff, Singing Water Vineyards offers a “relaxing and hometown feel” the minute you enter the property.
Singing Water Wines are crafted for exceptional quality and everyday enjoyment. Our wines have been awarded many medals at local and international wine competitions every year!
In honor of our troops, Singing Water Vineyards highlights Freedom Wine, a lovely blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Montepulciano. A portion of the proceeds is donated to the USO and the Fisher House Foundation, a program that provides free or low cost lodging to veterans and military family families while a loved one is receiving medical treatment. Our third tasting room is aptly named the “Freedom Room," a tribute to military personnel and their families.
