About Our Winery
100% Estate Grown wines
Kalasi Cellars is a boutique winery in Fredericksburg, TX formed by husband and wife, Greg and Nikhila Narra Davis, with a vision of producing and selling world-class quality, estate-grown wines in Texas, while providing our customers unique and memorable tasting experiences. Nikhila serves as the viticulturalist and winemaker, while Greg runs the business side.
Kalasi Cellars solely utilizes estate-grown grapes from its 140 acre vineyard in the Texas High Plains AVA (Narra Vineyards), as well as its tasting room’s onsite vineyard in Fredericksburg (Texas Hill Country AVA), meaning Kalasi Cellars uses 100% estate-grown, 100% Texas fruit and makes 100% single vineyard wines – a claim that very few wineries in Texas can make!
Our tasting room and production winery are situated on over 16 acres of relaxing Texas Hill Country land. Come enjoy our wines in our tasting room with a massive wrap around bar, or relax in Adirondack chairs under old pecan trees. You will likely even catch a glimpse of our llamas, Dalai and Roger!

Five generations ago our family began farming in India, cultivating crops of cocoa, coconuts, rice, and turmeric. Today, our family calls Texas home. We continue to honor our heritage, but we have reincarnated our farming roots by growing wine grapes!
We believe our wines exemplify how the blending of two cultures can create something authentic, yet entirely new and exciting.
Come Experience A Heritage Reincarnated!
