With patio weather now upon us, there’s no better time to plan a tasting tour throughout the wineries and vineyards in the Fredericksburg area. The capacity for the commercial wine industry to take a strong Texas hold has been developing since the 1970s. Winemaking with a product from the Lone Star State soon became a thriving industry. The Texas grapes used for wine production are grown for the most part in the High Plains, but specific winemaking grapes can and do thrive in the Texas Hill Country, making for the unique industry at Fredericksburg’s doorstep. Tours and tastings are easy to arrange, which makes the area a hotbed for vineyard activity, including traveling the famous 290 Wine Trail. The overall experience is one you won’t soon forget, and you’ll definitely be looking forward to again! Have you tasted a glass of this Texas Hill Country product? Tell us about it!
