The Wine Business

Texas has a long history in wine production with the earliest noted wines produced by Spanish missionaries in the 1600s. This all came to a halt during prohibition and it wasn't until the 1970s that Texas was able to once again make its mark as a key player in the industry. Finding her own passion for wine nearly a decade ago, Dr. Adams turned a hobby into something much more as she immediately fell in love with the culture that surrounded the wine world. What she found was a community of people who loved what they did and were extremely open and welcoming to others who wished to learn. So, what started with just tasting and discovering wines, soon turned into networking and researching the business and the grand finale, the opening of Kai-Simone Winery. Today Texas is one of the largest wine producing states in the nation and at Kai-Simone, we are passionate about cultivating and promoting Texas wines. Our focus is on producing, aging, bottling and labeling fine wines right here in the Texas Hill Country. Our varieties include something for every palette, a touch of sweet and sparkly or a mature and dry red, we represent a wonderful mix of some of the best wines of the region.
