We had a wonderful experience at Calais. Our hostess was so knowledgeable and explained the history of each wine in great detail. The wines were excellent and the homemade French bread was one of our favorite parts of the tasting!

Not your usual tasting room experience, but exceptional. A definite “must do” in the Texas wine country.

Great tasting experience with great wines. Easily the best Texas wines we've ever tasted. Interesting wines made with grapes from small lots, craftfully made by the small team. Very knowledgable guide talking us through the tasting.

We have loved visiting with the staff at Calais. They are very knowledgeable about wine and the process to bring out the best in the grapes. Plus, their wines are by far some of the best Texas produced wines out there!

Driving up there is no signage or indication you have even arrived. There is no entry way to ease you into the space; when others walked in, it was disruptive & bright light. The concierge was fabulous & knowledgeable. Wine is amazing

We were not sure we were in the right place when we drove up. We ended up loving our experience. Mary was fantastic, we enjoyed talking to her and the wine was excellent.

Calais is a one of a kind experience. Ben Calais built the small tasting room himself and it only acommodates a few guests. It is not a winery where people are churned in and out by the numbers. Expect exceptional wine and staff.
