Was eager to try wine and meet shop dog. Arrived and told dogs not available. Ok, lets try wine. No chairs. Have to stand at counter. A little awkward. Tried all 6 and learned that the wines aren't even from here. Blends from other grapes in other states. Really? Not worth our time. Will just stick with Becker.

We visited on our honeymoon the last weekend of August. My favorite winery of all we visited that weekend. Cozy, inviting, and tastey!

We went for the 2nd time to Hilmy for a tasting this month with 15 friends. We were welcomed warmly by all and given an amazing tour and tasting by Jordan. The wines are all excellent, especially the reds. The tasting room is great looking, spacious and the dogs makes it super friendly. We bought 4 cases of wine. Go... More

Of the four wineries/vineyards we visited in Texas hill country, this one was our least favorite (as far as their wines were concerned). The facility itself was quite nice, but we were looking for the most interesting and "exciting" wines. We found their product to be acceptable, but their wines just didn't have the pleasure we find in our favorite... More

I love this winery. The wine is great and the scenery is beautiful. I have been here a few times with my husband and we always have a great time. The staff is friendly and fun as well. You can see the guineas and roosters roaming around and they have beautiful dogs on the property. I love sitting on the... More

Wine tasting on 290 trek to Fredericksburg. Interesting techniques to cultivate and maintain the property, including roaming pea hens to control insects. Like it! Now to the wine. The 2014 Texas High Plains Rose' was crisp, and concluded with a nice tickle of flavor. I also liked the 2014 Temp-Texas High Plains Tempranillo Blend. It was not too heavy. They... More

We stopped in on a Friday afternoon - they were not busy at all and service was prompt by the two young men working - very welcoming. This is a much smaller establishment compared to the others in the area which is not necessarily a bad thing. Currently they offer 5 wines on the tasting menu - two whites and... More

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.
