A visit to Wedding Oak Winery is in order when you visit San Saba, and it definitely won’t disappoint. Named after a tree – a 400-year-old oak tree sitting just outside of town to be exact – legend has it that the tree is a symbolic site for weddings, dating back to the times when Native American lived in the area. Committed to making wine only from Texas grapes, Wedding Oak uses grapes grown in their vineyards, coupled with other Hill Country and High Plains produce.

After enjoying a wine or simply a tasting, head on out to Harry’s Boots, where you’ll find fifteen thousand square feet of fine western apparel, a phenomenal collection of genuine leather boots, and an entire floor dedicated solely to hats. From here you can visit many of the great San Saba shops including boutiques, antiques, and gifts. And when you’re done shopping, stow your purchases and take a stroll through Risien Park. With 80 acres in which to roam, grills for public use, volleyball courts, as well as an old stone amphitheater, it connects to the San Saba River Nature Park, which provides visitors with 38 added acres of greenbelt adjacent to the San Saba River. Here you can cross over an old railroad trestle and end up in a lush grove of pecan trees – the very product the town was originally synonymous with. And to top it off, and the end of the day, you can head to the pool hall which is connected to Diggs Restaurant & Club, shoot a game, listen to some music, and toast to a great San Saba adventure in the Texas Hill Country over a couple of beers.
