We tried 6 wines and no swallows - all spit. Both me and wife agreed the wines were all tasting bitter like grapefruit - the staff kept telling us what great wines they were - did not buy any of their wines.

The building is adorable and when you walk in it's just as adorable. The dogs were a cute bonus on the stop. We enjoyed all of the wines and ended up bringing home a bottle of the Doo.Zwa.Zo. Glad we were able to stop due to cutting it close to closing time.

Neat place. Love the entrance door. The wine was very good. Not much of it grown in Texas, mostly from Washington state.

Hilmy was the first winery that my husband and I visited during our day in Fredericksburg and we weren't quite sure what to expect from wineries in this region. We were very pleased with Hilmy Cellars though. The rustic yet modern decor and grounds were very interesting and of course we loved seeing the dogs sleeping and roaming around the... More

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.

Out of all the winery's on 290 this by far my favorite! The vibe and feel is so comfortable and I felt at home. The workers were so sweet and know there stuff! They make the tasting so much fun and it's not rushed. I also love the dogs around makes feel comfortable. The look to me was modern but... More

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
