Polvado Vineyards has decided to open its own winery, Lost Maples
Winery, LLC., this coming year. The vineyard has produced not
only a top quality Black Spanish Lenoir grape but top quality
wines are now being produced. With
determination and by the grace of God we have not only exceeded
our expectations in quality but quantity producing well over
20,000 lbs this year. Ms. Glenda refers to her vineyard as "God's
Vineyard." We are not only the first commercial vineyard in
Bandera, but the start of its viticulture industry.
land has been held in our family before Texas was a State. The
Polvado (Polvadeau) family migrated from France to the United
States. John Polvadeau settled along the Sabinal River near
Vanderpool, Texas. This land has been held in the family for
over 175 plus years. We are very proud that we have been able
to put this land to good use. I think all my grandparents would
be thrilled to see it now.
