7 Texas Wineries You’ve Never Heard Of (but Should Be Visiting)
You’ve already conquered the Hill Country hot spots
Wine Road 290 in Fredericksburg is great. But if you’ve been there, done that--and could still use another glass--you should consider visiting some lesser-known (but equally great) wineries. Here are seven excellent Texas wineries that are quietly serving up some great vintages.
Brushy Creek Vineyards
Tempranillo is the new black (grape). And this Alvord winery brought home gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition this summer for its rendition of the Spanish varietal, which means we should all go there to try it, right?
Eden Hill Vineyard
No reservation is necessary to hit up the tasting room at this vineyard. And at just 40 miles outside of Dallas, we think this calls for a road trip.
4910 Eden Hill Lane, Celina; 214-850-4081 or edenhi
You’ve probably heard of Messina Hof Winery and Resort in Bryan, however, North Texas may be surprised to find out that there is a cozier location smack dab in the middle of downtown Grapevine. Just shhhh… Let’s keep it on the down low.
201 S. Main St., Grapevine; 817-442-8463 or mes
Times Ten Cellars
For when you don’t want to leave the Dallas city limits to experience quality Texas wine, this urban winery is the perfect little oasis. Make plans to sip on a Wednesday evening (aka pizza night), when Urban Crust makes an appearance and cooks up delicious wood-fired food from 6 to 9 p.m.
