Mandola Winery BuildingDuchman Family Winery is the former Mandola Estate Winery. It rises like a grand Tuscan wine estate in the rural countryside southwest of Austin. The establishment is luxurious and welcoming and includes the winery and tasting room along with a restaurant next door - Trattoria Lisina.

Mandola Tasting RoomThe proprietors of this fine establishment have discovered the secret of making great wine in Texas - they use grapes that flourish here. They focus on grapes that thrive in regions of Italy that have similar climates and growing conditions - such as Sangiovese, Dolcetto, and Vermentino. Great wine must start with the grapes, and these are perfect for Texas.
