Fall Creek Vineyards

Drive out to the Texas Hill Country for a tasting of the oldest wine varieties produced in the area at Fall Creek Vineyards. Made with locally-grown Texas grape varieties, with some outsourced as indicated, you're sure to enjoy their award-winning Texas red and white, cabernet, and sauvignon premiere wines.

Check out this winery's social and seasonal events like their palette-pleasing yet educational wine and cheese tastings or their romantic French Pique-Nique Basket in the Vineyard event. For serious wine connoisseurs, a wine club membership offers access to many wine varieties, discounts, and members-only events. Membership includes access to member parties, exclusive tastings, winemaker dinners, and vineyard tours.

Perissos Vineyards

To taste Texas wines produced with 100% Texas grapes grown to succulent maturity, travel one hour northwest of Austin to Burnet to a wine lover’s paradise. White, rose, red, and fortified desert wines are available for your tasting by glass or by the bottle.

Several wine experiences are available, including conventional tastings, tour and tasting events, and farm-to-glass sensory experience events. The winery's tasting room is open Thursday through Sunday from 12-5 p.m. and requires no reservations in advance. Their wine club is free to join online and requires a purchase of six bottles of wine to activate membership.

Spicewood Vineyards

Less than an hour from the heart of Austin lies the perfect place for indulging in the best wine in central Texas. You can choose from their lists of red, white, pink, and sweet wines. Make sure to call ahead to inquire about the winery's tasting room offerings.

Texas wines are the highlight of weddings, receptions, and wine dinners at Spicewood Vineyards. And you can reserve a spot to hold your special event, or perhaps, a reunion, concert, or fundraiser event at the vineyard.

William Chris Wines

The real Lone Star State wines are made with 100% Texas grapes- no outsourcing here at William Chris Wines. The Hye Society Wine Club offers member access to four special release wines each year, and the first option to buy future wines.

Membership also includes entry to paired wine dinners, barrel tastings, members-only wines, and complimentary tastings. Make sure to call the winery in advance for information about reservations, regular wine tastings, tours, and special seasonal events.

The Infinite Monkey Theorem 

No vineyard, no pretense. This winery is named after an old mathematical theorem because of the infinite number of variables that go into the chaotic process of crafting their ridiculously good wine. The grapes are sourced from the Western slopes of Colorado and High Plains of Texas, then made in a 6,000-square foot urban winery in the South Congress District of Austin.

Their wine is an expression of the local fruit, the process, and the personality of the winemaker as well as the expressions of the people drinking the wine. This is the perfect place to gather a group of friends and enjoy a can of wine (yes, wine in a can!) in an atmosphere full of great vibes. 

The Austin Winery 

Being the first full-production grape to glass winery inside city limits makes this spot very special. They receive fruit on-stem from organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards in the Texas High Plains, which is then processed in an urban winery.

Walk into a snob-free, approachable environment and enjoy high-quality wines that are produced with Austin's unique culture, climate, and cuisine. Light bites, flights, and bottles to-go are offered as well.  

If you love wine and are in the Lone Star State, then you have to try some of Austin's best wineries!
