Martin & Marlene Phillips

Co-owners, Red River Rides

After traveling the world, Martin with the Army, Marlene with the Red Cross, and together in the Foreign Service, we have returned to Cooke County to raise our daughter, Avery.

Marlene’s connection to North Texas and the German-Catholic Flusche brothers who established several towns in the area runs deep. She is the great-great granddaughter of Wilhelm Flusche. Wilhelm was one of the earliest settlers of Lindsay. His home was used for the first Catholic Mass held in Lindsay, marking its official founding.

Relax, laugh, discover the stunning North Texas wine country with us. We’ll show you its majesty, reveal its history and create an experience you’ll never forget!
