Our family has been farming for over 5 generations in India. In 2013 we began our venture into farming in the USA, too, by purchasing the land for our Texas High Plains (Brownfield, TX) vineyard. This vineyard is our primary estate vineyard, Narra Vineyards. We planted our first vines there in 2014 followed by planting our vineyard in Fredericksburg in 2020. From the get-go we wanted to grow high-quality grapes to make the best wine possible, while maintaining our soils and always thinking about ways to use natural products to farm sustainably. We truly believe that Texas soils have something very special in making some amazing grapes into great wines and are very proud to be a part of the Texas wine journey.
Location: Situated at 3,300 feet in Brownfield, Texas (Texas High Plains AVA), which falls into Terry County. This is where 80%+ of the grapes made into Texas Wine are grown.
Vines: 20 acres planted in 2014 with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Albariño, Rousanne, and Sauvignon Blanc. The following year we planted 117 acres with varietals such as Teroldego, Carmenere, Sagrantino, Malvasia Bianca, Petit Verdot, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, and a whole lot of Tannat! All in we grow over 15 varietals and over 30 clones. We sell most of the grapes to other Texas wineries, but we hold back many of our favorite varietals to make into wine for Kalasi Cellars.
Soil: Sandy Loam.
Location: Situated at 1,693 feet in Fredericksburg, Texas (Texas Hill Country AVA).
Vines: We planted our first acre of Teroldego in May of 2020! We love how this grape has come to life at our site at our family vineyard, Narra Vineyards, that we wanted to showcase it in the Texas Hill Country. It’s a very hard to find grape varietal that creates big, bold, Texas red wine.
Soil: Sandy, Clay, Loam.
