Enticing Winery Weekends in the Texas Hill Country

By  | 

For those that are presently pondering some new and exciting experiences to have in 2018, consider a wine tasting or tour that may be unlike any other. A great place to look for details on finding a series of wineries or vineyards in Texas which are unfamiliar, secluded, but true diamonds-in-the-rough would be in the Texas Hill Country. Many of the wineries in this area can give visitors a chance to taste new flavors, enjoy some sights along the way, and take in some stories and scenery in the Hill Country they may not otherwise get the chance to enjoy. That being said, Texas Wine Trail put together a short list of such places that might make for an excellent and enticing winery weekend.

1. San Saba

San Saba is not only beautiful and full of great Texas Hill Country scenery, but it’s home to some captivating Texas history. Known as the “Pecan Capital of the World,” it also boasts great wineries such as Wedding Oak Winery and Old Man Scary Cellars, the latter of which has a downtown tasting room. And, while you’re in San Saba, there are plenty of great gift-giving ideas to be had in local shops and surroundings!

2. Comfort

Comfort features interesting artisan wineries allowing visitors to enjoy tastings among the vines. Bending Branch Winery and Singing Water Vineyards are two such hosts. Singing Water also has a tasting room built in a Texas Hill Country barn that’s now a century old! How’s that for history? Comfort’s also known for great antiquing opportunities and gorgeous bed and breakfasts.

3. Burnet

Burnet features amazingly scenic wineries in Perissos Vineyards and Winery and Torr Na Lochs Vineyards and Winery. The former hosts live music over several Saturdays while the latter is situated on a working cattle ranch. You can’t get much more Texan than either one of them! And, while you’re in Burnet, you can enjoy Longhorn Cavern State Park or Inks Lake State Park (or both, if you prefer), and partake in the local history of the area at Fort Croghan Museum.
