Just finding the winery is half the fun, for it is nestled amidst an old neighborhood in Del Rio. The staff is very friendly, and the wines beyond expectations. Different price levels of wine tasting are available. A quaint historic winery.

Be sure to take time to enjoy the flight of wines. Staff help you with your choices and take home enough to share. Love the photos and location. A must-see-and-do!

located in a picturesque portion of Old Town Del Rio, this is Texas' oldest winery, established in 1883. A very small visitor center where you can select either 5 or 12 wines to sample (for a small fee). They also have recently begun to produce and sell olive oil.

This is a nice stop but it is small and without a lot of fanfare. Very small vineyard, very small two room place. A variety of wines, enough to sample but nothing to do and no where to sit. Worth a stop for the curious with time to kill and relax.

have visited wineries all over Europe and the U.S. This little "Family Winery" rates right up there with family wineries anywhere. If you are lucky, you can happen in while Tommy (the owner) is in. They have a nice selection of wines. I especially liked the Tempranillo. Their Rosé was interesting. It is very light in color, but surprisingly full... More

Free wineglass with a full tasting! The wine is decent and varies through the year. The have some interesting ones! It's a very cute winery with a lot of history, but not a lot to see. The people that are working there are very polite and professional- nice to bring out of town friends here!

Heard about this winery at our hotel and found out it was the oldest winery in Texas. Very cool! The wines were all around pretty good, and featured some I'd never heard of before. Their reds were dry and pretty smooth. It's a pretty little winery just off the main street in Del Rio, so definitely a must if you're... More

This is a nice little winery, set in the green zone of Del Rio. It's surrounded by large trees and greenery. A good selection of wines to taste. They have a nice outdoor setting to sit and enjoy a bottle of wine. I signed up to join the wine club and be allowed to purchase limited wine selections offered in... More

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
