Pedernales Cellars

Owned & operated by a sixth-generation Texas family, Pedernales Cellars is committed to crafting world-class wine from 100% Texas fruit using sustainable practices. Its award-winning Texas Tempranillo and Viognier are benchmarks for these grape varietals in the state. The estate vineyard, Kuhlken Vineyards, was planted in 1995 by Larry and Jeanine Kuhlken in Texas’s oldest AVA (American Viticultural Area), Bell Mountain, which lies within the Texas Hill Country AVA. In 2006, their children, Julie and David, founded Pedernales Cellars. As a family affair, each brings their unique professional experiences to the business. Larry and Jeanine met each other working as computer programmers on the Apollo 11 mission, a love story commemorated by a special bottling called Over the Moon Rose. Julie (aka Dr. Julie) is a graduate of Stanford University, has a doctorate in philosophy, and taught at universities in both the US and the UK. She finds that her many years of teaching and writing aid her in managing the marketing and sales of wine in the front of the house. David is a Rice University graduate and has an MBA from the McCombs School of Business at UT Austin, which are a strong foundation for his roles as president and winemaker. He developed his winemaking style through collaboration with a number of local winemakers as well as training through the UC Davis Viticulture and Enology certification program. The family is currently nurturing the third generation, most of whom are still teenagers but already actively participate in the vineyard, tasting room, and cellar.
