Situated between I-45 and U.S. Highway 290, the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail provides its visitors a special blend of award-winning wines and amazing Southeast Texas views. The seven members of the trail include Bernhardt Winery, Cork This! Winery, Messina Hof Winery, Peach Creek Vineyards, Pleasant Hill Winery, Saddlehorn Winery, and Texas Star Winery, all of which are located in close proximity to the greater Houston area. Springtime being what it is in Texas, the trail seeks to market not only the beautiful wines that are produced at its member wineries but also the beautiful scenery. Hence the creation of the successful Spring Bluebonnet Wine & Cheese Trail.

And what better way to celebrate that great state flower together with equally great Texas wine than with friends or family, touring and tasting at a local winery! The Spring Bluebonnet Wine & Cheese Trail is scheduled for three weekends in late March or early April depending on the weather and the wildflower blooms. Guests of the tour can enjoy a select pairing of two wines together with a cheese appetizer specially prepared for the event at each stop. At the first winery on the trail (guests can start at the winery of their choice), visitors will receive a commemorative Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail glass to keep and use for each of the tastings. And each ticket holder will also receive a select gift at the sixth winery at which they stop.
Spring Bluebonnet Wine & Cheese Trail tickets are valid for one visit at each of the member wineries over the three weekends of the trail, regardless of the date on which the tickets are purchased. Ticket-holders will have six days over the three weekends in which to visit all seven wineries, and the official hours of the event are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, each participating weekend.
