Cassaro Winery and Vineyards
Planted first vines
After a trip to Napa and Sonoma counties and visiting numerous wineries, John and Jill return to North Texas and plant ten experimental grapevines.
From less than a dozen vines, the vineyard expands to over 1,000 vines and features Sangiovese from Italy, Tempranillo from Spain, and Albarino from Portugal.
Purchase of 1910 Farmhouse and Property
In 2018, the Matthews family doubled the size of their vineyard and purchased a 1910 farmhouse in historic downtown Ovilla, planning to build a tasting room and winery. Cassaro Winery and Vineyards, LLC was issued its winery license and renovations commenced on converting the house and its creek-lined property into a destination for wine lovers.
Cassaro Winery Opens
Cassaro Winery opens in the Spring of 2019.
