Romantic Sites in or near San Antonio

I am planning a trip with my fiancee next month and would like to know if there are any wineries nearby or romantic sites that we can visit in San Antonio or near the city.

Also, would like to know of any bed and breakfasts that we could stay at.

Thank you!!

I've stayed at this B&B in the Canyon Lake area (45min. north of SA) before and love it: http://www.thelakehousebb.com/

Tres romantique! (is that even correct?! - ha!)

If you stay there, it is very central to numerous Hill country wineries in the area.

If you guys like beer, you can always visit the Real Ale Brewing Co. http://www.realalebrewing.com/

They only do tours/tastings on Fridays though.
