Becker Vineyard was purchased by Dr. Richard and Bunny Becker in 1990 and opened to the public in 1996. They produce about 89,000 cases of wine per year. They own three vineyards (total of 95 acres) throughout Texas where they utilize the grapes for their wine. In addition, they pull grapes from other Texas vineyards, and some from New Mexico... More

Becker is one of the oldest wineries in Stonewall. Unlike most of the other wineries the buildings are not new and have the look and feel of old stone construction prevalent in the area. The buildings are not crowded together and the green grass with big trees offers many inviting places to drink your wine in quiet solitude. Even where... More

My wife and I visited Becker's on September 6, 2014. We did the tour and wine tasting and found the cellar was very interesting with the mesquite table and chairs. We had a mixed platter with pulled pork at the Bistro and it was excellent. The chef came out and visited with us for awhile which was nice. We joined... More

Perhaps Monday is not the best day to visit. Our server was disinterested and seemed more interested in moving us along than engaging in conversation about the wines and the vineyard / lavender fields. The tasting room was spacious and beautiful. It was decorated with many accessories related to Texas lifestyle and shelves were lined with wine bottles displaying their... More

Hello from the winery! Thank you for choosing the Claret! It is our fastest selling wine as well as a bronze winner at the San Francisco Wine Competition 2014! It also pairs well with a lot of foods (beef, dried sausages, hard cheeses, hearty soups...lots of delicious combinations!). We are sorry to hear your tasting room host/server was not more... More

The staff was so friendly and open to showing us around a bit. I felt their pride in their winery and felt honored that they would share it with us. I hope that one day soon we will attend one of the dinners offered in the cellar room we visited. As a result of this visit, Becker Temperanillo has become... More

And glad we stopped. The wines were excellent. Beautiful setting and very friendly staff! Didn't get a chance to try the bistro but saw several plates coming from there that looked wonderful.

we enjoyed the grape stomp on Labor Day weekend at Becker, and liked most of the wines, but it wasn't our favorite vineyard experience that weekend..we ended up liking the more medium sized wineries more!

Very nice facilities but like ALL Texas wine I have tried for the last couple of years.... There is no comparison to the wines that come from CA. However, their Port is worth a taste as it is light and not syrupy. The rest of the Red's and White's are only good for cooking. They do have a lavender farm... More

We visited two wineries in the Fredericksburg area on Wednesday, and this was our hands-down favorite! The facility was very attractive, it was peaceful and relaxing; we were invited to sit on the patio and eat our picnic lunch. They have snack items for purchase if you didn't bring a picnic lunch. The occasional breeze and ceiling fan were welcome... More
