Lost Maples Winery and Polvadeau Vineyards is nestled in a canyon along the crystal clear waters of the Sabinal River in Bandera County and is blessed with abundant natural resources and natural beauty. We believe that if you honor respect the land, it will reward you with its bounty. If you honor and respect the grapes, they will render wine that is to be celebrated as much as it is to be celebrated with. Hearty and robust Black Spanish/Lenoir grapes were originally brought to Texas by Spanish missionaries to make communion wine. Today, they form the basis of our deliciously distinctive wines. We hope you'll stop in if you're in the area for a tasting and some famous Texas hospitality!
The Lost Maples Winery, the Hill Country’s new premiere wedding and event venue, is nestled in a canyon along the Sabinal River in one of the most beautiful areas of Texas. Our 18-acre estate offers jaw dropping scenery and flexible facilities that can accommodate groups of up to 150 guests.

Owned and operated by Tom and Glenda Slaughter, Polvadeau Vineyards has specialized in growing Black Spanish/Lenoir grapes since 2006. The first commercial vineyard in Bandera County, the vineyard is about 65 miles northwest of San Antonio, TX, and just two miles from Lost Maples State Park. The vineyard has produced not only top quality Black Spanish Lenoir grapes, but also many top quality wines.
Our grapes are grown on land that has been held in Glenda's family for more than 175 years—since before Texas was even a State. The Polvado (Polvadeau) family migrated from France to the United States. John Polvadeau, Glenda’s great grandfather, settled along the spring-fed waters of the Sabinal River near Vanderpool, TX. Glenda and Tom grow their grapes and produce their wine as a loving testament to Glenda's grandparents.
Tom and Glenda are committed to the wine industry in the State of Texas. They have a nursery that sends their cuttings, and plants propagated from their cuttings, to vineyards all over the United States.
