Hawk’s Shadow


Hawk’s Shadow Winery is located deep in the Texas Hill Country, and yet is just 30 miles from downtown Austin. Hawk’s Shadow is run with the same hardworking spirit of those who first carved a life from the limestone plateaus of Central Texas. This uniquely Texan terroir produced men and women of strong character and uniqueness, qualities found in the vines grown on the estate. They craft a portfolio of Texas wines featuring our own estate varietals, and warm-climate grapes carefully chosen from Texas growers.

The road to the winery rises and falls along rolling terrain frequented by cyclists. When you arrive, a commanding view awaits: the Lower Estate Vineyard, nature preserves, ranches and the watershed of Deadman’s Hole. Wine tasting includes an eclectic portfolio of whites, like our bone dry Orange Muscat which has gained critical favor, or the barrel fermented and aged Chenin Blanc, Luna Vieja. Reds feature our 2011 HSV Estate Red created from their own vineyards, and distinct blends like the Mourvedre based Tres Robles.

They also feature a unique barrel tasting. Experience wines as they evolve from harvest, to cellar, to bottle. Visits are welcomed on Saturday 12- 6 pm, or any day by appointment. Come to Hawk’s Shadow Winery for unparalleled Texas Hill Country views. Sample their finished wines and works-in-progress. Find a shaded table to relax over a bottle with a friend. Hoping your visit will prompt you to consider their wines for your own cellar.
