Clipper House guests can visit our winery and enjoy an afternoon wine and cheese reception. The winery offers tours, wine tastings, wine-making classes, and live music. The winery backs up to the Clipper House and can be accessed via a path through the gardens and vineyard. The winery is closed on Mondays.
The Clipper House features a beautiful courtyard with fountains, annual flower gardens, and a demonstration vineyard. The property also features two gazebos, perfect for weddings or family gatherings.
This year we have planted three demonstration vineyards. We have six different varieties growing and will be having a fall harvest and crush weekend.
Nestled in the heart of Kemah and close to all the Boardwalk attractions lies the Clipper House Inn & Vineyard. Situated on over an acre of manicured gardens and grape vineyards are six 1930’s cottages filled with antiques and treasures from the owner’s world travels. Each cottage is named after a famous clipper ship befitting the design of the cottage interior. Each cottage features plush queen or king beds with luxurious linens, pristine private bathrooms with Jacuzzi or clawfoot tubs, flat screen televisions with DVD, and cozy sitting areas many with fireplaces. The result is an exceedingly romantic and soothing environment — perfect for a renewing visit to the bay. While staying at the Clipper House visit our winery and enjoy a glass of wine, take a wine making class, or try our salumi bar.
