About6th Street Winery
For years, my wife and I have enjoyed visiting wineries as we travel. The more wineries we visited, the more we wanted to own a winery of our own. My wife is a teacher and we found ourselves doing most of our traveling either in the summer or over Spring Break – which of course doesn’t surprise any teacher reading this.
During one spring break visiting wineries, we laughed about how many other teachers we encountered in the winery tasting rooms and how conversations always included the ‘need’ for a glass of wine after certain days in class. On the way home, we jokingly said there should be a wine named ‘Had a bad day Chardonnay’ and the idea of ‘Wine for Teachers’ was born. Of course, even though it is called Wine for Teachers, we all have bad days – so anyone can enjoy our wines!
We have several teachers in our family and many teacher friends. As we talked about the idea of opening a winery, we naturally had a lot of moral support. Investment support? Not so much. After all, we know how much teachers are paid!
The 6th Street Winery is located in Wichita Falls, Texas. We do not have a tasting room at this time. We have purchased a building and are working on plans to restore and remodel the tasting room area. The Wine for Teachers brand and website are here to help finance the creation of a full tasting room and event area. We appreciate your purchases and support as all the profits from the Wine for Teachers sales will be used to open the 6th Street Winery tasting room.
If you would like to be notified when the tasting room will be open, please complete the ‘Contact Us’ section and supply your email address.
Wine for Teachers
– We Get You.
We want everyone to understand ‘Wine for Teachers’ is simply a fun, lighthearted way of applauding the teaching profession. “No children were harmed in the making of this wine” really doesn’t need to be said, but there it is anyway. Teachers teach because they love to inspire their students. Can the little rascals test your patience? Absolutely. But as the husband and father of Kindergarten teachers and uncle, in-law and friend of many others, I am constantly amazed at the love and compassion I see from teachers for their students – even the students they struggle to teach. I have seen first hand how much hard work, time and mental energy it takes to stay engaged with a class when there are multiple ‘challenging’ students, but somehow, teachers find a way to go back the next day and work through the issues.
