Although my husband is a native of Texas, we had never visited Fredericksburg before, so wanted to get the full experience. Since there are so many wineries and they are spread out across the area, we decided to follow our friends advice to use Texas Wine Tours. I am so glad we did! Not only did our guide tailor the tour to our tastes, but he added so much interesting commentary along the way. Ask for Paul if you go. We didn't worry about driving after tastings and think the plan was a good value since it included the tasting fees at the wineries we visited. I would definitely do this again

The day started out a bit "rocky" literally...the bus we were in had been involved in some type of collision and the steering was a bit touchy. Waiting on parts for repair, the bus had been put back into service. We all thought that we were in for a day of motion sickness. Also, the A/C on the bus was slow to cool us down. I felt bad for our guide, Jerry, when we first started going due to the mechanical issues he was having to deal with. Nonetheless, we quickly forgot about the issues as Jerry captured our attention with his knowledge of the area and personality.

The tour to the 5 wineries showed a glimpse of the diversity in scale and operations that different wineries have to offer in the area. We went to tastings at Becker, 4.0, Grape Creek, Hilmy, and Torre di Pietra. All were great although some stood at as favorites.

The lunch break back in town at Rathskeller was a good break and good food. We went back for breakfast the following day because it was so good.

We will request Jerry as our tour guide when we go again!

Overall, an excellent experience despite the initial stumbles with the tour bus! We all highly recommend it.

Just to calm everyone's fears, the bus had not been in an accident. The passengers were never in any danger. We had this vehicle checked several times and it was deemed safe. The maintenance issue was being handled appropriately.

I spoke with Jerry who told me he would never jeopardize his passengers safety. (we knew this already without asking him) Also, it was a misunderstanding that this vehicle had been in a collision. Texas Wine Tours always goes above and beyond what would be considered routine with our vehicle care and inspections of every safety issue.

We loved the best part mentioning that Jerry captured everyone's attention with his knowledge of the area and his personality! That's why all of his tours love him.

Please mention your tour and review when you come back, we will be sure you have a wonderful day and will request Jerry for you again.

How did you find Texas Wine Tours?

Wine club friends staying in Austin, arranged the tour for our visit with them.


Would you request the same tour guide again and why?

Bill was personal, knowledgable, and a great organizer. The wineries chosen, met the criteria we asked for, and then some. The comfortable van made getting there a relaxing experience.


Was this your first wine tour with us or have you been with us before?

We have been on other tours, and this was one of the best. The personal tailoring was a great feature.


What did you enjoy most about your tour?

In addition to tasting some great wines and meeting open, friendly vintners, traveling through the Hill Country west of Austin made for a perfect day.

Thank B R

We booked a private tour with Paul and had a wonderful time. Out of the 8 of us who were on this tour, 4 of us had been to wineries before but agreed this tour was the best way to visit the wineries. Everything about the tour was easy, relaxing and FUN. We were already raving about the tour at dinner when Paul walked in with a bottle that had fallen under a seat. Tracking us down to return the bottle was above and beyond in terms of customer service. We're planning another trip next year with Texas Wine Tours! Thanks so much!

We visited Fredericksburg a couple of weeks ago (first week of Feb) and the wine tasting tour was my gift to my husband (so he did not have to be the desginated driver). Tom was our tour guide and he picked us up at our B&B and planned the morning around us. After lunch at a great local restaurant in the basement of the original hospital in Fredericksburg, we picked up a group of 6 for the afternoon. All 8 of us purchased a lot of wine on that day and we didn't get home with 2 of the bottles we bought that morning (I called Tom and he said he would be mailing it to us and I'm expecting the shipment any day now). It was a wonderful day and a great way to end our week long visit to Fredericksburg. Tom was very knowledgable and took us to 5 great wineries. Tom helped make the trip memorable!
