Barking Rocks Winery
An old rock barn was converted in 2002 into Barking Rocks Winery. Since then, we have been making wine, friends and memories happen in Granbury, Texas. Over the years, Winemaker and storyteller, Tiberia, has stayed true to making Texas wine with Texas grapes, providing them a path to their highest calling. Sissy keeps the operation running smoothly and has a story or two of her own. Ripple, the winery hound and official greeter, is always there to hopefully get a back scratch. We have made some beautiful dry wines, ports and roses and we are excited to share them with you. A visit to Barking Rocks is sure to include wine, a relaxed refuge, a story or two, and perhaps a new friend.
