The Texas Hill Country has absolutely exploded onto the winery scene in the past few years. In fact, Fredericksburg is now the second most popular destination in the US for visiting wineries, after California’s famed Napa Valley according to Orbitz Travel site. Every time you drive the 290 corridor you will probably notice a winery that was not there before. Somehow, each and every winery seems to have its own special allure, its own personality. Everyone seems to have a different favorite!
Guests now enjoy a variety of options to view the 45 (... and counting) wineries in comfort, from self service driving, to shuttle services, to deluxe limo-driven personalized tours. And if you can’t go to the wineries, the wineries will come to you! More and more vineyards are opening tasting rooms among the shops on Main Street to make sampling even easier for their clientele. Most also offer Wine Club memberships where they will send a little taste of Fredericksburg right to your door, even after you have returned home.
