Wine in Texas Hill Country

Yesterday for my friend’s birthday, we went to Fredericksburg Texas. Fredericksburg is beautiful and it’s known for being the Texas Hill country. It has multiple vineyards on the drive in and those vineyards show the beauty of the city. They have shuttle buses on the weekends where you can try the different vineyards. The ticket for the shuttle bus is $25.00 dollars but it does not include the wine. We didn’t try the shuttle bus, we drove straight to Main Street in downtown Fredericksburg. Main street has antique shops, restaurants, wineries, candy shops, and much more. The town has a German influenced because of German settlers that settled there in the past. However, they do have more than just German restaurants. One of my many favorite things about Fredericksburg TX is you can take your wine outside. Yes, you can walk around outside with your wine, beer, or cocktail!

The first winery we tried on Main Street was Andreucci  Wines. The owners of the winery lived 15 years in Italy and brought their knowledge of wine to Fredericksburg Texas. I tried their five sample wine tastings. I had a good experience, the staff was friendly and the wine was tasty. I’m still learning about wine, which is why I love Fredericksburg because I learn more every time I go. After, the winery my friends and I walked around downtown. I had to stop at one of the candy stops to get ice cream because it was hot out. You have to love Texas for its hot weather in February. For those of you that don’t like wine, Fredericksburg does have a brewery called Fredericksburg  brewery. We made a stop there too and the brewery reminded me of when I went to Germany. They had it set up similar like the original hofbrauhaus.

Das Peach Haus was where we ended our trip. It’s a cute little shop that serves jams, salsas, and of course wine. When we came here, we bought 2 bottles of blueberry wine and sat by the lake. The lake is in the backyard of Peach Haus. It was nice and relaxing to sit down and drink wine with my friends by the lake. We took pictures of the lake, talked, and enjoyed the delicious wine. The staff was nice enough to let us stay after they closed. Keep in mind that in Fredericksburg a lot places close early. If you decide to make a trip there, you want to get there in the morning, to have plenty of time to enjoy the city. Fredericksburg is a nice weekend gateway. You can have a bachelorette party with close friends, a romantic weekend with your significant other, or it can be a place to help you get away from the real world.
