6th Street Winery is in the restored 'Jones Building' located in the Depot Square historic district of downtown Wichita Falls, Texas. When built in 1914, the Jones Building originally faced Ohio Ave and was the home of a blacksmith and later the Valentine Auto Upholstery business.
Most of the original structure has been preserved - exposing large wooden trusses in the tasting room area. 6th Street Winery uses the 600 6th Street address as our tasting room entrance.
As an urban winery, we have no vineyards. We partner with vineyards in Texas and other parts of the country to secure premium quality grapes and change them into this wonderful thing called wine! Our tasting room features 20+ wines with a full complement of cheese boards and other light cuisines. We feel that wine is best shared with family and friends. We invite you to join us and make some new friends!
My wife and I enjoy visiting wineries as we travel. The more wineries we visit, the more we wanted to own a winery of our own. My wife is a teacher and we found ourselves traveling either in the summer or over Spring Break – which of course doesn’t surprise any teacher reading this.
One spring break on our winery visits, we laughed about how many other teachers we encountered in the winery tasting rooms and how conversations always included the ‘need’ for a glass of wine after certain days in class. On the way home, we jokingly said there should be a wine named ‘Had a bad day Chardonnay’. The idea for a ‘Wine for Teachers’ wine label was born.
After launching the Wine For Teachers website, we decided to open a winery and tasting room in Wichita Falls, Texas located at 600 6th Street.
Oddly enough, we call it 6th Street Winery.
We plan to start wine production in Wichita Falls shortly after opening the tasting room in early 2019. Our facility totals 7500 square feet. We have roughly 2,000 square feet for the tasting room leaving the remainder of the building for storage and wine production.
