By Locals, for Locals
Planted on the side of Highway 290W just on the outskirts of Austin, Cedar Valley Spirits is your locally-owned one-stop shop for all things leisure. Our broad but wonky selections of wine, spirits, beers, and cigars are carefully selected to satisfy everyone from the discerning connoisseur to the casual weekend warrior (and both are usually in attendance at our popular weekly wine-tastings!). Blending country-quirk with city-sophistication, we’re proud to represent Central Texas’ unique culture by featuring locally owned and produced sundries including beers from Blanco, Vodka from Dripping Springs, wines from Driftwood, and even Llano’s own Cooper’s BBQ meats! Heck, our local love even extends to the local artists whose work we happily hang in our mini-gallery!
So, whether you’re in need of that perfect bottle of vino, planning a big wedding at an area venue, or just looking to grab a few frosty brews after a tough day at the factory, our super friendly and super knowledgeable staff have got you covered. Because, hey, at Cedar Valley Spirits, your leisure is our pleasure!
Our trained and talented staff can assist with event planning whether at your home, the Kali Kate Event Center, Creekside Pavilion, or other location.

James Kennedy has been the manager at Cedar Valley Spirits since 2006. Prior to that, he has done everything from being a private investigator to being the primary chef at a string of high end restaurants. He is and always has been a member of numerous local wine tasting groups and an active member in the local culinary scene.
At Cedar Valley Spirits James strives to create a comfortable atmosphere for customers, whether it be a connoisseur hunting for a special champagne for a special occasion or a customer looking for a decent sparkling for mimosas. James strives to have a great selection of wines, both domestic and international. We have wines in all price ranges for every type of customer.
James gives excellent advice to customers about which wines to pair with particular foods. If you describe a wine you like, he can recommend several that are similar. If you describe a characteristic or flavor that puts you off, he can usually identify it and recommend what types or styles to avoid. He tries to make buying and tasting wines very accessible and non intimidating.
James meets with sales representatives daily to sample new offerings of wine, spirits and beers.
He reads constantly about new trends and surrounds himself with like-minded friends. So, even though he is not a big craft beer drinker, he solicits input from big craft beer drinkers and can compare and contrast each beer offering. He insures Cedar Valley has the ingredients of any new “hot” cocktails or craft beers as well as a good selection of what ever the new spirit trend is. He adds new wines, beers and spirits each week so the inventory is constantly evolving. What ever the item, he selects it carefully, he chooses an item either as best in class or as a great value wine.
