A new winery, 5 Soul Wine Co., is heading to a sprawling Hill Country spot in Spicewood next month. The winery will share an address with neighbors Frontyard Brewing at 4514 Bob Wire Road, with plans to open in November (slightly after the brewery).
The winery will initially offer five wines (cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, rosé, chardonnay, and sauvignon blanc), which will be available onsite by the bottle or by the glass. Operations manager Chris Arnold emphasized that winery plans to offer wines that they believe are approachable and easy to drink. The grapes for the initial wines were sourced from the central coast of California, but there are plans to include other regions like Oregon and Washington later on. A wine club is in the works, too.
5 Soul will serve light bites in the tasting room, as well as have a shared farm-to-table food truck onsite with Frontyard (they were connected to the brewers through a friend and real estate agent). The shared space will include loads of family-friendly activities like pickleball courts, a playground, and lawn games spread across the nine-acre property.
To combat the spread of COVID-19, the winery will capitalize on all that space with lots of outdoor seating and an e-commerce system guests can use to buy wine and food without entering the tasting room. 5 Soul will also follow all CDC and Texas guidelines on wearing masks, social distancing, and sanitizing.
5 Soul was started by Shannon Grant, who has over 20 years in the wine industry, and Chris Carson, who has a background in commercial building. Their families have five children between them, hence the name. The winery will be open the same hours as Frontyard, although those have not yet been determined.
