Owner/Operator Randy Duncan is a native Texan originally from Pflugerville, Texas. After more than 30 years in the Car Business, he decided to make his dream of owning a Winery come true. Educated through the Viticulture Program at Texas Tech University, Empresario Wines came to fruition. Taking a page from the Empresarios of Early Texas, the goal is to bring wines from across Texas to Salado for tasting and enjoyment. Empresario Wines proudly features a wide array of our own signature wines as well. Randy has been married to his wife Melissa Garcia since 2000. Melissa is a native of Del Rio, Texas. Del Rio is home to Texas' oldest winery. While on their Honeymoon in Napa Valley, their joined passion for wine took a strong hold. This passion was firmly engrained on their minds and now achieved together here at Empresario Wines! Randy and Melissa are the PROUD parents of Mackenzie, who is a student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. Mackenzie, also known as "Pea", plans to finish college and become a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and work as an Emergency Room Physician. Together with their love of their "Pea" and wines, Randy and Melissa have a Bulldog and Japanese Chin dogs! We look forward to getting to know you all, and thank you for visiting and supporting Empresario Wines!
