- EACH TOUR WILL INCLUDE -
VISIT TWO OR THREE HILL COUNTRY WINERIES OR TASTING ROOMS
We will take you to three locations, all located within 45 miles of San Marcos where you can taste great Texas wine. In the event that a more in depth experience is preferred we will visit two wineries and stay for longer and experience more at each. Please note your preference at when booking or when filling out your wine tour quiz. We recommend the two winery experience to those wishing to experience and learn about both the vineyard and wine making in addition to tasting. The three winery experience is best for those who wish to spend their tour time tasting wine and do not care to get out in the vineyards or wine production areas.
TASTING AT EACH LOCATION
We will cover the costs of your standard tasting fee at each of stops. The number of tastings included depends on which wineries are visited but typically five to six wines will be tasted at each location.
EDUCATION AND COMMENTARY
We love sharing our knowledge of the Hill Country, Texas Wine, wine making and the stories of our different winery stops with our passengers. We hope that you will ask us any and all questions you have about any part of the process as we travel to the wineries. We are native San Martians with a great deal of experience in the wine industry and well equipped to converse about a great deal of wine related information!
COLD BOTTLED WATER & DRY SNACKS
Please, stay hydrated! We cannot emphasize this enough, it is extremely important to drink lots of water while on tour. Tasting lots of wine and spending time in the warm Texas Hill country can end in severe dehydration if you do not regularly drink water. Bottled water will be provided for you throughout the tour to ensure you stay hydrated. If you feel hungry along the way, feel free to reach into our snack basket for something tasty to tide you over until your next meal.
FUN SURPRISE EXTRAS
We won't tell you what they are, but we're sure you'll be pleasantly surprised with our little extras for you to take home and remember us by!
INSULATED STORAGE FOR PURCHASES
There will be many great wines tasted on our journey and we hope that you will love them enough to purchase bottles to take home. If so, we have insulated storage areas to help keep your bottles from overheating. Please note, there is no electric refrigeration on board so we cannot keep bottles cold. Many wineries are also able to ship wine if you prefer not to carry them with you.
ZERO INTIMIDATION TASTING EXPERIENCE
Let's face it, tasting rooms can sometimes be intimidating, particularly if you are not familiar with the winery, or wine in general. Worry not, if you book with us you will be warmly welcomed by winery staff and your guide will act as an intermediary if you feel uncomfortable interacting with the winery. Wine tasting is fun, intimidation is not and we will be sure you are not made to feel that way at any point in the tour.
