"Great wines come from those that have mastered the skill of patience."
- Dan McLaughlin
Robert Clay Vineyards was originally planted in 1996 by Paul and Nancy Buist, named after their 2 sons, Robert and Clay. In 2012 Dan and Jeanie McLaughlin sought out to realize Dan’s childhood dream of becoming a farmer, and creating a lasting legacy for their future generations. Since taking over Robert Clay Vineyards, Dan’s passion and intuition has led them through an exciting road of learning and discovery that has already positioned Dan as a “True Texas Vigneron”.
Our winegrowing philosophy is quality driven. We devote particular attention to detail, taking a methodical approach to vineyard management, minimal intervention winemaking, authenticity, and character for our wines.
