Tour the 290 Wine Trail!

 

Join us on Saturday, November 9th for a tour of the 290 Wine Trail. Discover what five million annual visitors already know: Texas Hill Country Wineries are spectacular and fun! With more than 35 unique and visually stunning wineries scattered throughout the Hill Country, from Austin to Fredericksburg and Lampasas to New Braunfels, there’s someplace new to explore around every bend. Each place has its own personality, terroir and style of winemaking, yet all share a commitment to quality and a fervent passion for what they do.

Event cost includes transportation to and from 4 different wineries:


Messina Hof - The most awarded Texas wine in national and international competitions.

Pedernales Cellars - A family-owned boutique winery, specializing in fine, hand-crafted Texas wines, including award-winning Tempranillos and Viogniers.


William Chris Winery - A family-owned winery and vineyard using 100% Texas grown fruit, small batch fermentation and old world “by hand” techniques to achieve a level of wine quality which is truly unique to Texas.


Four Point Cellars - A collaboration between three Texas wineries - Brennan Vineyards, Lost Oak Winery, and McPherson Cellars, which are located respectively in Comanche, Burleson, and Lubbock, Texas.

Event cost of $34 is due upon RSVP.  Cost includes transportation, tax and gratuity. Wine tastings will be paid separately at each winery, giving you the flexibility to taste at your own pace. For your convenience, please use the tasting chart below as a guide:

1 Wine Tasting = Lightweight
2 Wine Tastings = Apprentice
3 Wine Tastings = Aspiring Sommelier
4 Wine Tastings = This is why we have a limobus!

We will meet in the parking lot of Barton Creek Mall near the Dillards entrance. Plan to arrive at or after 9:30am. The bus will leave at 10:00am sharp. We will return to Austin by 6pm. Feel free to bring a bottle or two to share during the drive. Bus doors close at 10am...wine bottles open at 10:01!

We look forward to seeing you on the tour!

Cheers!

Marla, Michael and Derek

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
