New Fredericksburg Winery to Watch

4.0 Cellars Fredericksburg

Wineries pull together to produce 4.0 Cellars

What happens when a handful of out-of-the-way Texas wineries pool their resources? 4.0 Cellars.

Three of the state’s top producers — Comanche’s Brennan Vineyards, Lubbock’s McPherson Cellars and Burleson’s Lost Oak Winery — created the new winery near Fredericksburg.

“The key thing is, you can taste wines from all our wineries,” says winemaker Kim McPherson, “without driving 350 miles to Lubbock or 150 miles to Comanche.”

A tower reminiscent of an abstract duck blind rises above the urban industrial-meets-Texas Hill Country complex on 4 acres in Stonewall, along the popular Fredericksburg Wine Road 290. True to Texas, there’s plenty of room on the front porch as well as in the tasting room.

All the wineries make award-winning wines, including Lost Oak’s 2010 Viognier, which earned double gold earlier this year at the prestigious San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition.

4.0 will also stock very small lots, such as the McPherson Albariño. McPherson plans to make the first 4.0 wine, a sherry, later this year.

Kim’s daughter, winemaker Kassandra McPherson, works at 4.0. Kassandra’s grandfather, Clinton “Doc” McPherson, is a Texas wine industry pioneer, which makes the McPhersons Texas’ first three-generation winemaking family.
