I and two friends visited the Pleasant Hill Winery just outside Brenham for the first time. The setting was very enjoyable, the wine selections were quite good, and the staff was so friendly. We sat outside on the open-air covered deck. It was a lovely experience. We all bought wine there and plan to return at some point.

Great place with friendly staff and usually the owners will chat about their history. No crowds with pleasant and peaceful surroundings. Did I forget great wine

Don't put a chain across handicap ramp. Some of us are not "officially" handicapped, but have a lot of difficulty with stairs. Did not care much for the wines. Small operation. This is a retirement hobby for these people. Messina Hof is better, as is the Fredericksburg Trail.

The staff gave little information about the wines you were sampling aside from the types of grapes it was made from. All wines were just sub par. The staff was reluctant to actually do tours because "there was a project in the cellar" and "it was muddy near the grape vines". They also had cheese trays but refused to sell... More

I'm not connoisseur of wine but do taste a few here and there. Was by the Chappell Hill area and decided to check this place out. I had the wine tasting which wasn't bad so I decided to buy a bottle to take it home. But when I drank it at home, the taste is not the same at the... More

Small is the right descriptive word. Ok for dropping by to taste wine on a week day but forget weekends. Lack of space and staff will hinder its growth and ratings.

1. It is indeed a pleasant little place on a hill. The shop is nice, the seating plentiful (for under, say, 30 people) and the selection of gifts is good, if not typical winery schtick. 2. The wines are not bad. Neither are they outstanding. They're good...that's it. That is NOT to say you won't find one that suits you,... More
