Love & Devotion
two kids and a dream
Cultivated in 1996 by Paul and Nancy Buist, Robert Clay Vineyards is named after the Buist's two boys. In 2012, Jeanie and Dan Mclaughlin relocated their family to Mason, Texas to pursue Dan's dream of building a farm where he could create a lasting legacy of good health and patience. Robert Clay is the first Texas commercial grower of Touriga Nacional, a grape varietal known as one of the finest red grapes in Portugal.
The focus of the vineyards will bring a new age of timeless wines and natural varietals. By investing in the barreling and aging process, the vineyards will produce that higher quality fruit to reduce and eliminate the need for additives.
a fresh start
Normally in the late winter and early spring the vineyard is dominated by the serene sounds of birds and crickets as well as the crisp snap of pruners, as workers meticulously clear away last year’s growth to make room for the new canopy. In the spring of 2013, the vineyard was dominated by the sound of chainsaws. After consulting with several growers, Dan decided that the most efficient and effective way to restore Robert Clay Vineyards was to cut everything down to the ground and to start fresh.
