ABOUT UMBRA WINERY
Umbra Winery is a Texas winery based in Little Elm, Texas. Our tasting room is located at 415 S. Main Street in Grapevine, Texas and their vineyard, Umbra Winery at La Buena Vida Vineyards Springtown is located at 650 Vineyard Lane, Springtown, Texas. The winery was established in 2005 and the current owner, John Wilson and his wife Debbie, have owned it since January 2013. The duo has added a distinctly European flair to their aesthetic having lived, traveled and honeymooned in Europe. Their love of wine, food, travel and culture is evident throughout. The vineyard was recently acquired from Dr. Bobby Smith, a pioneer in the Texas wine industry. The vineyard has been in place for over 40 years and the team plan to expand Dr. Smith’s dream to include an 8,000sft traditional Spanish villa style Event Center, tasting room/patio, and production facility Learn More About Umbra
