My friend and I were winery hopping and decided to pull over into Hilmy Cellars. Great choice! Their wine tasting was superb, but what made this place our favorite along the strip was their lovely and passionate staff. They went above and beyond to make sure we understood the different wines in their wine tasting offering and to make sure... More

Several locals and even other wineries suggested we stop here. We were not disappointed. Many of the grapes are grown in Texas. The reds are complex and bold, and definitely worth a try. We bought several bottles before we left.

I'm not a wine snob nor expert, but do enjoy going to this place. Far smaller than many of the more established places, they have solid wines. The wine club is a good deal and doesn't cost anything to join, and you get free wine tastings and discounts on the wine. We usually drive up from Austin on a nice... More

Interesting facility and presentation. Small selection available for tasting and 3 of the 4 wines available were from grapes/juices brought in from elsewhere, although we were led to believe that eventually this will change to in house products. The wines were pleasant but not outstanding, but we did buy a bottle.

Not the best wines nor value for what you pay for tastings. Food wasn't great either. There are better wines at Grape creek and becker vineyards.

The Hilmy winery is the best winery on the wine road in Texas. The owner is very nice and approachable, with fine wines and two large dogs that make you feel at home. The wines are unique and very good and reasonably priced. the ground are beautiful with many animals and a rustic feel. This winery is a must for... More

The wine tasting is more expensive than others on 290 trail. Also, the wine selection for tasting is also limited. There are only four wines included in the tasting and they are selected for you. Probably won't go back again.

we planned a birthday surprise wine tour with Magesty Wine Tours for a friend and these people rocked! they had a beautiful farm table set in the barrel room ready for our group...so charming. Ask about their upcoming chef prepared boutique dinners and food pairing events to showcase their fabulous wines. A perfect place for an event.

We celebrated our friend's birthday with a private dinner at the Hilmy Cellars. They offered a private tour and the meal and wines were incredible. This is a definite stop when in Fredericksburg, TX

Enjoyed the wine tasting and the guy was very knowledgeable . Nice outside covered patio, heaters, wine was delicious. They have a few working great pyrenees dogs there, so sweet and gentle. Loved this place.
