Turtle Creek Vineyard tasting room is an authentic wine experience in downtown Kerrville that sits in a landmark 1890 building embodying Texas history. Here, we take you into a world that evokes taste in every sense.

Our winery features rare and worldly wines, the 100% Texas Turtle Creek Vineyard private label and authentic olive oil. Relax in a historic and stylish setting and travel back to a Golden Age in time with classic movies and music.

The historic building has stood grandly throughout Kerrville’s history, housing many notable businesses that paved the path into the town’s identity. In 1890 it was constructed by Alfred Giles and Captain Charles Schreiner, and served as a Masonic Lodge until 1927. After the Freemason’s, it served as Kerrville’s post office and general store under Florence Butt, mother to HEB store’s Howard E. Butt.

Following several other businesses that called the building home, longtime jeweler Dell Sheftall (owner of Sheftall’s in Austin and San Antonio) opened doors to Sheftall’s Jewelers in 2004 until his retirement in September 2017, where he then handed the keys to Dan and Sue Schulse.

The Schulse’s opened a distinguished tasting room experience in 2019, working collectively with private property, Turtle Creek Olive Grove, where their vineyard and winery production facility is located.

If you’re visiting the Texas Hill Country, stop in the historic downtown tasting room and say hi! We’re open Tues. through Sat. 11 am to 8 pm at 211 Earl Garrett Street, in Kerrville.
