Our Story

About Wedding Oak Winery

Wine is about the shared pleasures of life — slowing down long enough to appreciate the blessings of the land while enjoying local food and wine with friends, family and community. That’s where we began.

We take our inspiration and name from the majestic, 400 year-old oak tree, known as the Wedding Oak Tree, which grows about 2.5 miles northwest from the winery. The stately tree has been the symbolic site of numerous ceremonies and weddings, beginning with Native Americans on to early settlers and continuing to this day. It reminds us of the importance of nature, the importance of place and the importance of celebrating relationships.

Our Texas roots run deep.

In July 2010 viticulturist Mike McHenry and a group of friends started Wedding Oak Winery with the passion to bring the burgeoning Texas wine industry to the heart of small town Texas. We opened our historic 1926 tasting room and 10,000 case winery, located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 190 and State Highway 16, on June 1, 2012. We are proud to be a central part of the renaissance of San Saba.

Just as the casual beauty, friendly personalities and relaxing hospitality defines small town Texas, Wedding Oak Winery is committed to making Texas wines that celebrate our Texas terroir and wine-growing conditions. Our Texas-born winemaker artfully makes our wines with grapes grown in our own estate vineyards, as well winery-managed Texas Hill Country vineyards and Texas High Planes vineyards. We’re proud to bring you Texas wines of distinction suitable for celebrations and every-day drinking.
