Pedernales Cellars began with Larry and Jeanine Kuhlken, who planted their first vineyard near Fredericksburg in the early 1990s. During this time Texas wine pioneers worked with different grape varietals and viticulture practices, to help master winemaking in the Texas terroir; and over time the Kuhlken vineyard started producing consistently high quality fruit with bold, intense flavors. Pedernales Cellars draws its name from geography and history – the Pedernales River runs through the Texas Hill Country, and “pedernales” means flint in Spanish. The inspiration came when David found an old flint Indian arrowhead in the vineyard, while Fredrik found part of an Indian flint stone ax on the winery site. The serendipity of these two finds connected the vineyard, winery, the region, and its history. https://www.pedernalescellars.com/

In 2011, a chance meeting between Benjamin Calias and James Davidson at a pot luck dinner club sparked a conversation about the art of distilling. They excitedly began researching the production and history of rums, trading messages frequently from different spots around the globe on the different rums they came across. They searched for the best rums available in the US, France and the Caribbean – always learning more and more about the style they wanted to produce. They quickly set off to collaborate on making their own rums using wine barrels. https://hyerum.com/
