Moving to Johnson City
After meeting and working with so many amazing people in the wine business since 2007, Miguel and Barbara Lecuona started their own Texas winery. It’s called Siboney (See-Bo-NAY) Cellars. And we are delighted to relocate to historic Johnson City and Wine Road 290 in the Hill Country.
In 2017 and 2018 we started our winery with the help of our friends at Hawk’s Shadow Winery, producing about 1000 cases and introduced Siboney to Texas wine lovers and collectors. We won medals for wine and design.
In 2019 Miguel and Barbara were thrilled to announce and welcome new partners Bill and Mary Anne Waldrip to the #Txwine Industry. The new Partnership announced plans for a permanent home for Siboney Cellars at a beautiful limestone terraced 52 acre site 4 miles west of Johnson City. We also produced about 3000 cases from the precocious 2019 harvest.
2020 found everyone coping with pandemic challenges and navigating safe avenues to serve customer demand amid travel and service restrictions. We focused on breaking ground, installing a vineyard, and planning for a modern winery, underground barrel cellar, and tasting rooms with commanding views. Our vineyard connections expanded and we helped other small wineries with their production in partnership with Kerrville Hills Winery for the 2020 Harvest. This will continue into harvest in 2021.
And now, 2021 is here. We are preparing for on-site tastings and tours while we plant the vines and build the winery. Then we will announce a grand opening gala, a day we look forward to sharing with you all.
