Welcome to Val Verde Winery

    Welcome to the oldest continuously running winery in Texas.  Here at Val Verde Winery, we believe in family, tradition, and quality.  Each of our award-winning wines is carefully hand-made in small quantities, using traditional methods passed down from generation to generation.  We invite you to visit us at the winery, and enjoy a complimentary tour and tasting.  Take your favorite wines home and allow us to bring our traditions and quality to your celebrations for years to come!

Val Verde Winery was established in 1883 by Italian immigrant Frank Qualia, who brought with him the family tradition of winemaking.  When he arrived in Del Rio, he found Lenoir grapes flourishing under the warm Southwest Texas sun, and founded the winery.  After his death in 1936, his youngest son, Louis Qualia, took over the vineyards, who in turn passed the winery to his youngest son, Thomas, in 1973.
