Driftwood Estate Winery sits in the Heart of the Texas Hill Country on a bluff overlooking the vineyards below. Come enjoy a bottle of our award winning Texas wine! The Driftwood Estate Winery staff invites you to take a scenic Hill Country drive to the winery and try our award winning wines. The view from the bluff is spectacular, and the grounds are perfect for a picnic with your favorite glass or bottle of Driftwood Estate wine. We are open every day from 11am till 6pm for tastings and wine sales. We are closed for Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Years Day. We close to the public four times a year for our quarterly Gold and Silver Spur Wine Club Parties. Always check our website or Facebook page to see if we have extended hours. Taste any 6 wines listed on our tasting sheet for $12. The tasting fee includes a large Driftwood logo souvenir wine glass. Gold and Silver Spur Wine Club Members currently receive 4 complimentary wine tastings per membership every visit during regular business hours. Complimentary tastings do not include a wine glass. Active duty military receive a free tasting and 10% discount on all wine purchases. We thank you for your service. For groups, please contact us ahead of time to see if an advanced booking is needed. For information about private group tastings visit our website. We do not accept limos or buses on Saturdays and Sundays without a prior approval during the week. Please contact Dana Morrison with any questions. Her contact information can be found on our website. A complete list and description of our wines can be found on the wine store page of our website. In addition to our wines, we are also tasting and selling a premium wine from our sister winery in Paso Robles. Come by for lunch and enjoy the view from our 1,100 square foot deck overhanging the bluff, our picnic area under the oak trees or our pavilion next to the tasting room. They all have a beautiful view of the hill country and vineyard below. Our outdoor facilities are for the use of winery customers only and no alcoholic beverages can be brought onto the winery premises. Bring your own lunch. Pet friendly! The DEW Crew is looking forward to your visit! Cheers!

Can do tastings or get a glass/bottle and sit outside and relax. Tastings were good but expensive bottles considering other wineries nearby
