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.
