Cofounder/Winemaker, William Chris Vineyards; Cofounder/Adventurer, Yes We Can Wine, Hye, TX

Bigger and better in Texas

The Texas native and cofounder of William Chris Vineyards and Yes We Can Wine has been a driving force behind the Texas wine industry. A vocal and tireless advocate for “Real. Texas. Wine.,” a grassroots movement to promote wines made from 100% Texas-grown fruit and terroir, Brundrett continues to campaign hard for legislation that ensures wines labeled with a Texas appellation are 100% Texas grown (the current requirement is a minimum of 75% state grown). He produces serious wines from grapes like Mourvèdre and Petit Verdot, which thrive in Texas soils, as well as wines that are seriously fun, from pet-nats to cans of Yes We Can Sway Rosé.
