Check out what’s on tap at the Ponderosa Pour House


You’ve already checked out the Pink Pistol and the Red 55 Winery, and now comes the newest adventure from the Lambert family, the Ponderosa Pour House!

“We’ve got the Pink Pistol here in town, it’s been here for several years. As a tourist destination, we draw about 50,000 tourists, a year, into Lindale,” said Rick Lambert, owner of the Pink Pistol, Red 55 Winery, and the new Ponderosa Pour House. “And of course, we have the Red 55 Hemingway wine tasting room, and it’s a big hit.” “A lot of the guys that come in here say ‘Oh, I don’t drink wine’ so we wanted to give them the opportunity to have a cold beer, if they want to.”

The Lamberts have teamed up with True Vine, in Tyler, to serve their products as well as brewing their own beer in house. Visitors will also be able to watch the wine bottling process for their winery from inside Ponderosa Pour House.

“We moved all our bottling line from our property outside of town, inside our space,” said Lambert. “We bought a big new tank, added that to it, so we’ll be producing wine inside that space and you can sit in the Ponderosa Pour House and watch the operation take place.”

Visitors will also be able to enjoy a selection of balsamic vinegar, olive oils, and barbecue spices for sale.

“If you’re a chef, or a cook, it’s excellent stuff,” said Lambert. “If you just want to serve it with bread, it’s a great appetizer for your friends, especially with a bottle of wine. We’re real proud of that, that’s been very successful. Just another item you can’t get just anywhere.”

People come here because it’s Miranda Lambert’s place,” said her father, Rick Lambert. “She has millions of followers, and a lot of fans in her fan club, and they show up here. She’s busy as she can be, but that’s the reason for coming to this place. She never fails to mention Lindale when she’s doing her interviews. Lindale, Texas, is her home and we’re real proud of the accolades she’s done. She’s on fire right now.”

You can stop in for a drink Monday - Thursday: 10 AM to 6PM, Friday - Saturday: 10 AM to 8PM, or Sunday: 11 AM to 5 PM.

Ponderosa Pour House is located at 114 E Norse St in Lindale, next to the Pink Pistol.
