If you're looking for a fun wine experience in a country setting, Pleasant Hill Winery in Brenham is a nice choice. Located halfway between Austin and Houston just off of US Hwy 290, Pleasant Hill offers multiple tours on Saturday and Sunday for just $5, which includes a tasting. The overall operation is small and quaint as they still do... More

This small winery offers brief tours, the chance to visit the vineyard proper, and an overview of the wine-making process. They have some nice offerings if you like sweet white wines--the Clos du Bois is the best of this line that they offer. The real gem, however, is the Tawny Port--a FABULOUS find--ask for a chocolate and port pairing.

This is a very small winery. It was cozy and very personable with a nice tour. Sit out on the deck and have a few glasses and talk with friends.

The winery was nice, far off the road and a little hard to find. The wine was okay but pricey. The person in charge was alright, but nothing special.

This little winery is must to stop and see. We had a nice tour followed by a tasting upstairs. They have good whites but I wasn't to pleased with the Reds I tried and I'm a red person. This is one of three in the area. We have visited two of the three and this one was better by far.... More

We've been to Pleasant Hill Winery a handful of times, and the experience always brings us back. The number and style of wines available varies by season and by year, so we always kick off our visit with a tasting. Our server, Holly, was delightful. Fun, lively, personable, and knowledgable of the wines and the area. When you're done with... More

This was our last stop on the bluebonnet wine trail. Both wines we tasted were good. The tasting area was small but quaint. Had the weather been better I'm sure we would have stayed longer or enjoyed our visit more. The staff was friendly.

There is a small fee for tasting which is NOT shown on their website.The wine was generally not bad. There was a good selection of dry to sweet. Lots of narrow stairs to get upstairs to the tasting room. Could be a problem if you have bad knees.

They offer tastings and a tour of the winery. We arrived right after a tour and didn’t have time to wait for the next tour so we didn’t get that experience. The tasting is four wines for 5 dollars. They were heavy into the sweet wines, which I do not enjoy, but my companion liked several of them. The gift... More

we took a tour of this small winery and learned alot about the wine making process on a smaller scale. After the tour we had the option to try either dry or sweet wines and they even paired it with some food.
