Enjoy a glass of vino this holiday weekend at Lucky Vines Vineyard & Winery. They're having music.


Wine lovers will never tire of this view from Lucky Vines Vineyard.

Weather like this demands that we drink wine. Good wine. Preferably on a patio.

That’s where Lucky Vines Vineyard & Winery comes in.

Nestled snuggly between Dublin and Stephenville, the winery has a new and improved patio with plenty of seating for guests who will enjoy gazing out at the vineyard while sipping a crisp Viognier (my favorite).

If a full-bodied Cabernet is more your style, they have that too, along with a variety of sweeter wines, bubbles and a Rose that will make your heart skip a beat.

Lucky Vines is one of Erath County’s shiniest gems; a place to gather with family and friends to enjoy great wine, charcuterie boards made exclusively with Veldhuizen Cheese in a beautiful setting unlike any place else.

To celebrate the holiday weekend, Eli Veldhuizen will perform on the patio from 4-7 p.m. Saturday.

ABOUT THE OWNERS

Jeff and Kimberly Hutchins first opened the winery and tasting room in 2018.

Jeff is a physician who has been practicing medicine in Erath County for 20 years.

Before grapes became her passion, Kimberly worked as a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines.

Now the couple share their love of wine with others while creating a personal experience for their guests in a unique setting.

TIES TO TARLETON

Jeff graduated from Tarleton State University with a biology degree in 1991.

“I grew up in Bangs and came to Stephenville to attend Tarleton,” Jeff said. “When I was a student, the university was very small and you knew everyone.

“I loved its hometown feel and had a blast going to school there; I was always proud of it.”

The couple continues to be a proud supporter of Jeff’s alma mater and is a member of Tarleton’s Alumni Association.

“I’m proud of how the university has grown and the character it has maintained,” Jeff said. “It hasn’t lost its soul.”
