An interview with Coordinates Vineyards co-owner, Austin Kerr
Nestled at 417 E Main Street Fredericksburg, TX, you’ll find a historic blacksmith building, home to the beautiful tasting room of Coordinates Vineyards. Founded in 2021,Coordinates Vineyards is new to Texas, but the co-owners and brothers, Austin and Mahlon Kerr, are wine industry veterans. Austin and Mahlon have been traveling internationally for more than 20 years. Their off-the-beaten-track style has taken them to some remarkable vineyards. With a palate for fine wines, they have always looked for quality that outperforms the price.

Mahlon and Austin Kerr have been traveling internationally for more than 20 years. Their off-the-beaten-track style has taken them to some remarkable vineyards. With a palate for fine wines, they have always looked for quality that outperforms the price.
After moving to the Texas Hill Country 11 years ago, Mahlon began exploring the area, and laid down roots in Fredericksburg, TX. He felt the growing wine industry in Texas was missing something special, so he partnered with his brother Austin to open a new winery tasting room on Main Street.
After living in Asia and sourcing wines for the Chinese market for more than a decade, Austin had the skills to get the project in motion. Reuniting again in Fredericksburg, they can’t wait to welcome you to their world of wine
