About Green Goat Winery & Vineyard.
Family owned and operated, Green Goat Winery and Vineyard is located in the lush, rolling hills of east Texas, otherwise known as the “Piney Woods.” We can be found nestled on FM 279, just east of the charming, laid back artist community of Edom; just west of the amazing Blue Moon Gardens Nursery.

Meet our Wine Makers
What began as a hobby winemaking, with a few 5 gallon carboys back in 1994, gradually became a passionate obsession over the next 20 years. In 2013, after a “gentle nudge” from my lovely wife, to “please move your hobby outside the house,” the plan to build a small barn was born. Within a week, the simple plan morphed into an amazing winery plan.
2014 saw the beginning of construction and our first vines were planted. When 2015 hit, the wine cellar was added and more vines planted. When 2016 rolled around, the large, stainless steel tanks arrived and lots more equipment was added to our operation…and we had our very first harvest! With a grand amount of dedication and hard work, 2018 gave us our completed tasting room, and was ready to open and….. we had 2 amazing vintages in the cellar! We couldn’t have done it without the LOVE, help and support from all our family and friends.
The intense east Texas summer sun and our gravelly, sandy loam soil give us the perfect terroir to produce superb fruit, which is always hand harvested, and personally crafted into small batched of artisan wine. Our goal is to continually improve our wines and our customer’s experience with us. Please, feel free to stroll through our 7 acre vineyard, or just chill with friends on the deck, light a cigar on our porch which surrounds the tasting room- all while enjoying one of our many hand crafted wines. Our new pavilion is also a fabulous place hang out, listening to live music, especially on “Bring Your Own Meat” dinner nights; our custom designed and built new grill is simply spectacular!!
It’s definitely a family affair at Green Goat and we want you to feel at home with us. Cheers!
With much LOVE,
Rip & Cindy Cunningham
