Hill Country Wineries

If you like good wine and great friendships, Texas Hill Country is the place to visit!
There are now over 50 wineries in Hill Country!  Yes, over 50!  you could spend many a
weekend visiting several wineries around the area and not be at the same one more than once.  Plus there are more in the works--This
is better than Napa Valley because it's in Texas!

We have made an appointment with Kuhlman, one of our club memberships, to sample 
small bites with their wine selections--always yummy!  And the food pairings change with the seasons. You will always find a delicious wine at Kuhlman, styled by their French winemaker.

Okay, the day is young, where to venture next?  So many choices--think we'll drop in on our friends at Lost Draw Winery, located behind HEB grocery in Fredericksburg.  Here you will find
knowledgeable pourers and you might even have a chance to visit with Troy or David.
We have visited with their vineyard owner in Brownwood--West Texas fields!

The day has only so many hours and we can't drink that much as we travel the 290 corridor so
why not take a shuttle?  Perfect way to relax and enjoy the scenery and various wineries.

Another favorite is Becker Winery, which has a wide variety of good wines, a lavender shop
and 46 acres of pure joy!  Here you can listen to music with a picnic and that bottle of wine,
have a luncheon at special events or just kick back and enjoy the breeze.

As most of these wineries offer music on weekends, it's a difficult task to decide which one to attend.
Tomorrow we'll visit a couple more before we head back to our routine life.
