“Great wines, nice tasting room”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

It gets a little crazy out there on the weekends but it is great any time.

Wines are very good and getting better each year. Servers are very nice and happy to explain and recommend.

“Great wine, better customer service. ”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I went here, because of a locals recommendation. It was great. The woman who helped us, Sally, was phenomenal. She took the time to explain each wine in the flight. She was very knowledgeable and very patient with us. We are a level below novice when it comes to wine. We ended up buying two wines and will for sure go back . The setting is beautiful, and we should have sat out on the patio and drank a glass or two. Hindsight is 20/20. I highly recommend a visit. For $12 you get to choose six wines from a list of at least 20. Ask for Sally when you go.

“You get a free glass”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Becker was the most commercial feeling of the wineries I've visited around Fredericksburg. For the price of the tasting, you get 4 tickets to taste their various wines and get to keep the wine glass, a better perk than the tastings themselves. Most of the wines are higher end than the ones you see in your local HEB, though they didn't taste it. The pourers are busy attending others as it's usually busy here, being the most known of the Texas Hill Country wineries. So they aren't very attentive or even knowledgeable about their wines.

Hello from the winery! We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your winery experience. The local wineries have been receiving a lot of publicity and bringing more visitors. We have hired more people to help accommodate our visitors and they are still in training. We appreciate your feedback so we can improve our service and the visitor experience.

“Beautiful grounds and great tour”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This is a very large setting compared to others on 290. The lavender smells so good and the wines were outstanding. The servers were outstanding and very fun to speak with. The free tour was very nice and the tour guide was funny. The only downside was the lack of finger foods. Many of the other wineries in the area have great little appetizers and Becker didn't, but all-in-all and very nice experience.
