We went on a weekday during the first week of January. I like to try new wineries during slow times. Really enjoyed the... wine and the gentleman who did the tastings. He was knowledgable about both the wine and the area, and was also extremely friendly.The only negative I note is that both the owners walked through the tasting room while we were there (We recognized them from their photos,), and neither stopped to talk to any of the guests (6 total). We visited the winery because we heard them on Shelley Wilfong's podcast, and the fact that she'd studied under Dan Gatlin impressed me. They seemed really personable and interesting. We're members at a number of wineries, and our relationships with the owners and staff are the difference between the memberships we cycle through and the ones we maintain. At our top 2 or 3, the owners are the ones that convinced us to join because we liked them so much.Again, minor point. We loved the wine (and bought some), and thoroughly enjoyed the tasting experience provided by staff.read more

I have given this review 3 stars . Not because the wine wasn’t good , it’s not because of the amazing young man named... Louis who served us . He was not only nice he was very knowledgeable about the wine and answered all of our questions. The property was also very nice . All of those previously mentioned categories deserve 5 stars. My concern was the older lady who also was working on Dec 31 at 11 am when we arrived . There were only 4 other people in the tasting room when we arrived. Louis greeted us very nicely and we were asked if we had a reservation and we did not . We understood we were a party of 10 we would not have expected to be given anything special . We would have been fine with bottle service alone. However the lady quickly told us (and not in a friendly tone)since we were a party of 10 we would have to pay on one ticket and would be charged an automatic 20 % gratuity charge . We were not very happy with her tone or her rude attitude . We were going to leave and just go to another winery . Louis stepped in and took care of us . At the end of our visit each couple probably payed $100. +But to add to our encounter with this particular worker . One of our party asked if a military discount was offered ( He is a retired Marine) and she said we only offer a discount for active military personnel. With a finger gestures as quotation “”.Is this your policy ? If so I think it needs to said to the public so they can make the decision to patronize. Your winery or not.I am sorry to go on about this but as a business owner . I think it is important that you know what goes on in your winery.We will not be returning . With the quality of your wine . We may have considered being part of your wine club. However to have to deal with the likes of her .. no way!Thank you,Kelly Cread more

From the moment we entered; myself, husband and dear friend, until the moment we left, we enjoyed every second of the... tasting! Paul was very knowledgeable and so friendly. The history and beginning of Kalasi is a beautiful story. If your day is full of wine tastings and if you are “pacing” yourself, word to the wise, make sure to start with this winery. Don’t save it till the end. We went in as visitors and came out as members 😊. Cheers!read more

I visited Kalasi Cellars to celebrate my 40th birthday. I am not a drinker, but I’ve always been intrigued with... wineries and the wine making process. It was simply amazing! We booked the Grower’s /Winemaker’s Seated Private Tasting with Nikhila, one of the owners. She was so kind, thorough, and knowledgeable. She answered all of our questions and made us feel so comfortable and welcomed! It was evident that she was passionate about her craft and understands how to produce a quality product. It honestly was the perfect choice and I’m so glad we had the opportunity to visit!read more

I went to Kalasi Cellars for my 50th birthday with a group of friends and Paul took great care of us. He took his time... educating us on the process of wine making and made our experience such a joy! He was personable, kind, attentive and funny. I lived in the bay area of California for many years and have experienced wine tasting in Napa Valley and Sonoma but my experience at Kalasi Cellars was by far my best and favorite thus far because Paul made us feel at home. We also met the owner the next day at a local restaurant and she was so warm and friendly. The wine was also delicious so we became members!read more

I really wanted to like this winery, but I did not. The service was s..l..o..w even though it was not busy. The owners... were there and did not bother to pitch in and help. Their kids were there, and almost seemed trapped inside. Weird. I could have looked past those things, but the wine was awful as well, and 3 of the tastings literally smelled like dirty feet. My husband ordered a snack, and it was frozen grocery store garbage that the server told us came right out of the air fryer. Yuk! Our server disappeared towards the end and was told he was doing the dishes. Good luck getting service there. We couldn't wait to leave.read more

This was a winery we added after reading their story on line. We were not expecting too much given the age of the... winery and the lack of competitive awards.We were blown away. Our experience was by far one of the top two among the 8 vineyards we visited this trip. Greeted by personable and knowledgable staff we delighted in tasting the wines. We actually bought 3 bottles and joined their wine club.Some of the reds need more time to become fully established but they are worthy of drinking now. We are not Rose vans but it was one of the bottles we bought because of its relatively dry nature for that varietal.Our advice is GO....ENJOY SOME GREAT WINEread more

We have been members here for a little over a year. Don’t let the cool clean tasting room fool you as this is the... warmest most family friendly winery with delicious wines you will find. Fredericksburg is known for it’s wines, but many are sweet and this is a hidden gem of delicious flavorful wines that don’t resemble juice. Finding a winery run by a grower that provides estate grown wines with such thoughtfulness in every drop will bring out the Sommelier in everyone as you compare the same wines from year to year.And as for the service, we can’t say enough. The staff, including the owners, are personable and truly want to ensure you have the best experience. We needed a changing table, they got us one. Have friends show up to a members event where they are making food fresh for those who RSVP’d, they flex hard and get your friends a plate of delicious Indian inspired BBQ. Overall this is one of our favorite places in Fredericksburg for many reasons! Cheers to people who truly love wine and people!read more

Our family had an exceptionally good time at Kalasi Cellars. We were staying at an AirBnB in Fredericksburg and... ultimately were looking for places where we could charge our Tesla. The winery was 12 minutes from our stay, so we figured it was an easy place to try.We received a warm welcome and a server that insisted we try our wines before getting a glass. I'm glad I did as my first pick didn't suit me, but the second was right on the money. The charcuterie was delectable and I was impressed by the table service, even though we were outside. We picked up 2 bottles to go and have enjoyed the memories back at home.We're already planning our next trip to Fredericksburg and Kalasi Cellars will surely be a stop along the way.read more

Kalasi Cellars Brings Optical Grape Sorting to Texas

Enabling a Colossal Leap in Wine Quality to Rival Best in the World

Pellenc Optical Grape Sorter at Kalasi Cellars

FREDERICKSBURG, Texas (August 9, 2022) – Kalasi Cellars, a boutique, 100% estate-grown winery in the Texas Hill Country, has received delivery of its Pellenc Selectiv’ Process Vision 3 optical sorter, marking the first time this world-class technology has made its way to a Texas winery.

This equipment enables Kalasi Cellars to solely use the perfect red grapes for winemaking. It does this by scanning all harvested material and empowering the winemaker to choose the desired ripeness (color), shape (no raisins), and size (no shot berries) of grapes to be used for winemaking. All material other than grapes (MOG) can also be removed. The speed and level of control this equipment provides is unprecedented in Texas winemaking and will play a central role in Kalasi Cellars continuing to raise the bar for Texas wine quality.

About Kalasi Cellars
Kalasi Cellars is a boutique winery owned and operated by husband and wife duo, Greg and Nikhila Narra Davis, with a vision of producing and selling world-class quality, estate-grown wines in Texas, while providing customers unique and memorable tasting experiences.

Kalasi Cellars utilizes estate grown grapes from the Texas High Plains AVA (Narra Vineyards), as well as its tasting room’s onsite vineyard in Fredericksburg (Texas Hill Country AVA). Kalasi Cellars’ inaugural vintage was 2017, and doors opened to the Fredericksburg, Texas tasting room in 2020.

Kalasi Cellars Engages Dan and Spencer Gatlin for Winemaking Consultation

Team to Support Kalasi Cellars’s Mission to Create World-Class Texas Wine

 

FREDERICKSBURG, Texas (October 3, 2021) – Kalasi Cellars, a growing boutique winery in the Texas Hill Country, is pleased to announce its winemaking collaboration with Dan and Spencer Gatlin from Inwood Estates. Over the past 45 years, Dan has created some of the highest quality wines in Texas and has helped show the world the potential of Texas wines. Through the years he’s mentored his son, Spencer, into an excellent winemaker as well. They have made fantastic wines not just through excellent work in the cellar, but also through meticulous grape growing. Nikhila Narra Davis of Kalasi Cellars began working with Dan and Spencer Gatlin in 2017 when they first started buying fruit from Kalasi Cellars’ vineyard, Narra Vineyards, for Inwood Estates.

Over the years, Dan and Spencer have become intimately familiar with the vision that Greg and Nikhila have for Kalasi Cellars. To help Kalasi Cellars achieve its mission of creating world-class wines made from 100% Texas fruit, Dan and Spencer will provide winemaking mentorship to Greg and Nikhila Narra Davis. It is the first mentorship of its kind that Dan and Spencer have undertaken and is a sign of the potential they see in Kalasi Cellars and the Texas wine industry.

The timing of this mentorship coincides with the completion of Kalasi Cellars’ wine making facility in Fredericksburg, Texas. All Kalasi Cellars wine is now produced in-house, making it one of the few wineries in Texas growing 100% of their own fruit in Texas (Narra Vineyards) and processing all fruit for the winery in house, setting it up to be a leader in the Texas wine industry for years to come.

Kalasi Cellars to Host First Anniversary Celebration

Celebrating One Year of Serving Fantastic Wine and Creating Memorable Experiences

FREDERICKSBURG, Texas (July 8, 2021) – Kalasi Cellars, a growing boutique winery in the Texas Hill Country, is pleased to announce its first anniversary celebration on August 14th, 2021. This ticketed event commemorates the tasting room’s first year of business, and kicks off a significant new chapter for the business – the grand opening of its 10,800 sqft production building, enabling the winery to have end-to-end control from grape growing at its vineyard (Narra Vineyards in the Texas High Plains) to winemaking (all in house starting with the 2021 vintage) to sales through the tasting room.

This night to remember will incorporate many Indian influences to highlight the winery’s heritage and culture. These Indian influences include a catered Indian dinner (vegetarian and meat options), live Indian tabla and dhol drummers, a DJ playing Indian hits, and henna. Additionally, this celebration also coincides with India’s Independence Day (August 15th), making it even more cause for celebration.

Tickets to this celebration are available now at www.kalasicellars.com/events. Note that there are a limited number of attendees and ticket sales will end on July 31st.
