Athens Welcomes New Winery
3 P’s in a Vine Winery and Vineyard is Athens’ newest establishment offering the finest wines made from grapes grown in Texas. The beautiful log winery is built on 12-acres and features indoor and outdoor seating for tasting pleasure.
Enjoy wine tastings in front of the stone fireplace or at the bar. Relax on the patio overlooking the vineyard under the bright starry skies of East Texas.
3 P’s in a Vine is a dream come true for owners Brett and Rae Priestley. In 2012, Brett was doing carpentry work for a local doctor who had a small vineyard of Blanc Du Bois grapes. He was relocating and offered Brett the eight-year old vines and all the post, irrigation, and wine making equipment. Brett had to dig up each vine and transplant it onto their land. In the process of getting the vines transplanted, they only lost one vine out of nearly 100.
After two years of growing the vines and propagating new vines, they came up with the idea of having their own winery. The winery overlooks the vineyard. Rae’s daughter came up with the name 3 P’s in a Vine, the three P’s representing their last name.
The family hopes to give everyone a great, relaxing experience when they visit the winery and vineyard and they are excited to provide their customers with some of the finest wines. All of their wines are made from grapes that are Texas grown.
The Priestleys feel strongly about educating their patrons on the quality of wines that they can produce here in Texas. Their goal is to have people come to 3 P’s in a Vine and have them leave with a greater appreciation of Texas wine, and feel like they had a great experience at their winery that will make them want to return again and again.
Located at 955 Douglas Road in Athens, the winery is open Friday through Sunday. For more information about 3 P’s in a Vine Winery, visit www.3psinavine.com or on Facebook for information on live music and special events.
