Vingo Vineyards is a family owned business. We are committed to growing quality grapes to supply Texas wineries.
Steven grew up in Ohio in an agriculture family. He and his wife, Pamela, moved from Ohio to the Texas Panhandle in the early 1980’s to strike out on their own. In 1984 they purchased a farm and built a home near Dalhart, TX to raise their son, Zachary. They still live on the same farm and planted the vineyard by their home. They have raised many different crops over the years but have a real passion for grapes. They are very excited for the future and to see Vingo Vineyards grow!
Zachary was born and raised in Dalhart where he grew up learning how to grow corn and wheat. After college he worked in the aerospace industry for a few years. When it came time to start a family with Rinnell, a schoolteacher, they felt rural life was a great place to raise kids. They are blessed with two sons, Elijah and Oliver.

Where did the name come from?
Vingo is a name given to one of the soil types on our farm by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Vingo is characterized by deep well drained, undulating soils with a top layer of loamy fine sand (Soil Survey of Dallam County, p. 22).
