Bringing a winery to San Saba
We love the classic, early 20th century historical structures in San Saba and the commitment of several of the city’s renaissance pioneers to revitalize the downtown area. The proximity to our estate vineyards and its location at the top of the Texas Hill Country American Viticultural Area (AVA) make San Saba an excellent site for Wedding Oak Winery and its retail tasting room.
Reinvigorating San Saba
Wedding Oak Winery is an essential part of the renaissance of downtown San Saba. We have made a positive impact with the restoration and recycling of the 1926 commercial structure that houses our tasting room and gorgeous outdoor courtyard, as well as the construction of a 7,800 square-foot, 10,000 case winery production facility in the adjacent west lots. In addition, we have completely restored the 1924 building at the west end of our block to incubate a new winery and tasting room, Old Man Scary Cellars.
San Saba’s town square and surrounding parks are a vital and active part of day to day life in the town, hosting farmer’s markets, live music events, and numerous community wide dinners. Many of its historic buildings are being saved and reclaimed for today’s business people, some of whom have family roots that trace back for generations.
Fun and hospitality are key ingredients to the revitalization of our town. Wine, food and lovely accommodations go hand in hand. Next door to Wedding Oak Winery on the east side is the 1910 Campbell-Hagan building that is now home to the J.C Campbell Mercantile; a delightful restaurant, Oliver & Company Confections and Coffee; and a gracious bed & breakfast, the Dofflemyer Hotel.
In San Saba, no one attempted to re-create Tuscany or Provence, but rather — the best of Texas life.
