5 Notable Texas Hill Country Wineries

Johnson City, TX

Fans of Italian-style wines will rejoice at Texas Hills Vineyard. This Texas winery had its soil analyzed and found it to be virtually the same as their friend’s vineyard in Tuscany! With wine made using Italian techniques, over 13 varietals, and two GOLD Medal winning wines, you won’t want to miss Texas Hills Vineyard.

2. Driftwood Estate Winery

Driftwood, TX

This family-run winery and vineyard has been in business for over 23 years. Offering over 16 varietals, the Driftwood Estate Winery is the perfect place for those looking to sample a large volume of wines! Once you’ve worked up an appetite, hit their bistro for globally inspired bites.

William Chris Vineyards offers a variety of experiences catering to small tasting groups, the casual lunch crowd, foodies, private groups, and more! With over 17 varietals, you’re certain to find something for everyone in your group! We love this vineyard because not only are they people-friendly, they’re also pet and child friendly!

“As you walk up to the welcoming center, you are immediately greeted with a glass of chilled wine. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They will accommodate your party and explain all the amenities provided. The wine tasting is very informative and interesting, and our server made us feel like old friends. A great place to include on whatever wine adventure you may be on!” -Weze

Driftwood, TX

Fall Creek Vineyards offers delicious wine in a relaxed setting. “With deep Texas roots, a passion for quality, and an appreciation for the future” it’s not surprising that Fall Creek Vineyards is not only a local name but a globally recognized one.
