A Guide for Visiting the Vineyards of Austin, Texas

There is no season that is a bad time to make a trip to see the many vineyards of Austin. Texas wineries are known for using Italian, Spanish, and Rhone varieties of grapes which are well-suited for the warmth of Texas’ climate. Recent years have spurred attempts to increase the production of grapes in Texas, especially with many vineyards using only grapes produced in the state. If you’re ready to start your vineyard journey in Texas, it’s going to be an amazing trip. Here are some of the things you should know first.

Plan Your Trip Ahead of Time

Every one of the vineyards in Austin is worth visiting, so it might take time to decide which of them you want to visit. Even if you know which wineries you’ll be visiting, you will need to research when they are open. It’s often the case that the hours change based on the season to always check the website or make a call to be sure of the hours the winery is open.

Make Appointments if Possible

Weekends tend to be busy for wineries, as do wedding seasons such as spring and fall. If you plan to visit during those times, it’s best to make sure you have made an appointment. Tasting rooms have limited space so make sure you get your name on the list so you aren’t disappointed when you show up and can’t experience everything you would have liked to.

Ask Questions

When you’re hanging out at the vineyards you are interested in, don’t be afraid to ask questions of the staff who are there. The people there are happy to share information about the wine and the vineyard itself. Let them do their jobs by helping you better understand what they offer and what their winery represents. It’s a great way to educate yourself on Texas wine.
