We all know that a party bus is the best mode of transportation for you to go on your winery tour in Austin, but how do you know which wineries you want to go to? Texas is a very large state, so you have plenty of options when it comes to places to visit.
There is one area of Texas that is the most popular place to visit for wine enthusiasts, though, and that is what we will be discussing here.
Top Destinations for a Texas Winery Tour
While Austin does contain plenty of wineries, the top destination for winery tours in Texas is the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Comprised of cities like Fredericksburg, Dripping Springs and Driftwood, the Hill Country features some of Texas' top wineries.
In fact, some of the wineries in the Hill Country are considered the best in the country. Not bad for a state whose wine industry was once considered sub-par!
The most popular wineries of the region would have to be Becker Vineyards, Duchman Family Winery and Pedernales Cellars, these seem to be the most widely known Texas wineries in the country.
Don't feel like you have to restrict yourself to the most popular wineries, though, as there are a few diamonds in the rough to be found in the Hill Country.We would recommend:
The best part about doing winery tours out in the Hill Country is that there are plenty of other great spots to visit between stops.
In Fredericksburg, you can visit the historic Main Street, which is home to dozens of adorable mom n' pop shops and quaint restaurants. If you're booking a weekend trip, be sure to stay in a bed and breakfast, as Fredericksburg is famous for them.
Driftwood is home to the legendary Salt Lick BBQ, arguably the best barbecue in the state (there are plenty of arguments to be made when it comes to the best Texas barbecue, however).
Best Austin Wine Bus Tour to Fit Your Taste
To find the best winery tour to fit your taste, it's really going to depend on the types of wines you like. Whether you are a light drinker or a heavy drinker, every winery will have a little something for everybody.
When you walk in, you have the option of either touring the winery, enjoying a tasting or simply purchasing a glass of wine at the bar and enjoying the scenery. You can make your tour be pretty much anything you want it to be, but we definitely recommend enjoying a tasting to get the most out of your trip.
Most winery tour trips will consist of visits to three or four wineries. If you don't want to do tastings at each one, you can mix it up a bit and plan what you will do at each one.
A good way is to do a full-blown tour at your first stop when everyone is at their most sober, then do a tasting at your second stop and, finally, purchasing a glass (or two) of wine at your third and fourth stops. This way of doing winery tours has proven to be the most successful when it comes to ensuring that everyone in your group has a great time.
Of course, you don't have to do it this way. If you want to do a tasting at each stop then go ahead! If you only want to visit two wineries because you want to do a tour and a tasting at each one, that is okay too! There is no right or wrong way about winery tours. As long as everyone has a good time, that is all matters.
