Nestled in the Sabinal Canyon along the Sabinal River in Bandera County , Texas , one will find ‘Lost Maples Winery, LLC.’ located on the Polvadeau Vineyards (‘Polvadeau’ is the original spelling of ‘Polvado’. It is of French origin). It is graced by mountains and crystal clear springs that feed into the Sabinal River . We are fortunate to call this place home finding peace and strength from God’s creation. The winery and vineyard are making excellent use of the land held in the Polvado family since land grants were issued. We are the first commercial winery and commercial vineyard in Bandera County located 65 plus miles northwest of San Antonio, Texas, on FM 187 approximately 1 mile south of Lost Maples Natural State Park .

We are committed to the wine industry in the State of Texas. We have a nursery which sends our cuttings and plants propagated from our cuttings to vineyards and startup vineyards not only in the State of Texas but all over the United States.

We are growing the Black Spanish/Lenoir Grapes which were originally brought over from Spain into Mexico, and missionaries brought the grapes up around the existing border of Texas in order to make communion wine. This grape has been around for hundreds of years and has survived droughts, cold winters and floods. Today, the Black Spanish Lenoir Grape is making a name for itself. Here at our winery we are making a communion wine, Polvadeau du Dieu (Wine of the Father), which is a port and our signature wine. We are also have made a Polvadeau Vin Rouge, a Polvadeau Reserve Vin Rouge, a Polvadeau Vin Blanc, Polvadeau Vin L'Inspiration and a Polvadeau Vin Symphonique and Polvadeau du Bois.

We cordially invite you to visit our piece of paradise and that you will find solace in the crystal waters of the Sabinal River and renewed energy from the mountains. While here, we hope you will honor us by sampling what, we believe, is the best wine the Texas Hill Country has to offer.
