Hawk's Shadow Winery, Dripping Springs

Hawk's Shadow Winery is located deep in the Texas Hill Country, and yet is just 30 miles from South Congress Avenue in downtown Austin. Hawk’s Shadow Winery was built and is run with the same hardworking spirit of those who first carved a life from the limestone encrusted plateaus of Central Texas. This uniquely Texan terroir produced men and women of strong character and uniqueness, qualities which are found in the vines and grapes grown on the estate. Hawk's Shadow Winery is crafting a select portfolio of Texas wines featuring our own estate varietals, and warm-climate grapes carefully chosen from Texas growers.

When you arrive at Hawk's Shadow, you will have a commanding view of the Lower Estate Vineyard, and the broad expanse of nature preserves, ranches and watersheds east of the Pedernales Falls State Park. The wine tasting at Hawk's Shadow features sampling of our finished wines in bottle, including the 2011 Orange Muscat, a dry white gaining critical favor, and the new 2011 HSV Estate Red, crafted from varietals from our own vineyards. We also have several wines in barrel, tank and various stages of evolution, featured in our barrel sample tasting. Try the same grape varietal as it evolves in different types of oak, and you will pick up on aromatic qualities and flavor nuances in the wine as it moves from harvest, to cellar, to bottle.

Come to Hawk's Shadow Winery for unparalleled Texas Hill Country views. Sample our finished wines and works-in-progress. Find a shaded table to relax over a glass or bottle with a friend. We hope your visit will prompt you to consider our wines for your own cellar. And we look forward to welcoming your return.

  • Beautiful place! The ownership and staff are passionate, friendly and knowledgeable about their wines and business. (did the premium tasting -reds 10/13/19) The winery is good looking and the views are beautiful. We got to see the cellar (cut into the limestone) the only one of its kind in the area if not Texas. The reds we had ranged from light and fruity to deep and sophisticated. Can't recommend enough - worth the effort to get there!
  • Just left this place and felt compelled to write my review immediately...it was that good! Beautiful place and beautiful, sweet, generous staff/owners! Came from out of town and shipped a case back home. Can't say enough good things about them. Highly recommended! Will absolutely return!
