This was our 3rd visit to the Val Verde winery, and it just keeps getting better. They had a new wine we liked, Sierra Madre, and an old one that is only produced every few years --the Lenoir. It's a treat to hear about the oldest continuously operating winery in Texas!

The winery was close to our hotel, so my husband and I decided to check it out. It is small, with a limited selection and just a smattering of accessories for the wine lover. I asked to taste one of the two white wines they make and the young lady poured me what was barely a mouthful to try. It... More

A nice selection of wines and some very good tasting ones. They also have olive oil at times that is very good.

Saw this in one of our guide books and looked interesting. Went inside after finding the winery by asking around. The young lady inside who was doing the wine tasting and sales was excellent. She knows her product and was not forceful but polite and patient. We bought wine of varying types and it was delicious. We like sweeter wines... More

This winery is home to my all-time favorite Port! It is the oldest continually open winery in the entire state, but it is very, very small. I wouldn't necessarily drive hours out of my way to stop here (considering Del Rio is hours away from everything), but if you are passing through or going to Amistad you should definitely stop...

Three couples visited the winery while we were visiting friends (we are from Florida) and did their wine tasting. Though most of the wine was a little sweet for my tastes, we had a fun experience, and the lady who conducted the tasting was very nice and pleasant. An unexpected little pleasure in Del Rio.

The oldest bonded winery in the state of Texas, this place is an attractive place to stop when in the area. Located only a short distance from the Mexican border, the history of this place is remarkable. The surrounding area of Del Rio is attractive, and worth poking around. We always make it a point stop here to replenish our... More

A very historic winery with alot of class! A single room with tasting area and gift shop; pus an addition with wine equipment and barrels. The tasting was great and the wine was delicious. I lean towards the whites but the ports where very good as well. Great dessert, after dinner drinks. Wines are reasonable priced. I noticed lots of... More
