Visited with a good friend of mine to celebrate our birthdays. Since we went on a Saturday, reservations were required in advance. Everyone was super nice. The tour included tastings direct from the barrel and a taste of the Serendipity wine. Afterwards, we enjoyed a glass on the patio which thankfully was heated since it was a cold day. Such... More

We've visited GC on several occasions and have always been impressed with their setup. Last weekend for no different. We had a group of friends who joined us for a tasting and we ended up signing up to become members of their wine club. Becoming a member is free and offers discounts on wine and other items. The member area... More

Thank you for the great review! We are so glad that you've become a Wine Club member. We want everyone to feel welcome and have a good time while here, especially our wine club members, which is why we have put policies in place to control the crowd levels, such as paid tasting requirements for non members on Saturdays.

We've been many times before, and especially enjoy their lovely scenery and pizza. But, recently, we visited on a Saturday and were informed that we could not enter unless we purchased a wine tasting ticket. We explained that we were only going for a pizza on their patio that day, but were told that we needed to buy a ticket... More

My wife and I went wine tasting in the Fredericksburg area with three other couples. We hired a van and driver four our tour. We have been to wineries in California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Texas. Never have we felt unwelcome until our visit to Grape Creek. It started with a security guard in the lower portion of the road... More

This is our second visit to Grape Creek. Wine tasting fees are mandatory to enter the building. You cannot puchase wine on the premises unless you join their wine club for free. The club gets you great discounts. If you do not join their club, I think you can order wine online and have it shipped. Grape Creek has a... More

We watched car after car be waved through, collectively more than doubling our private bus within seconds, while we were turned away. 1/4 of the people on our small business were members, yet we were told we would neither be allowed in for tasting or even to simply walk up the drive, buy wine and leave. We were on a... More

Most of our guests are happy we control group access. For other readers, two key points to cover related to this review: 1) in Texas public intoxication is a crime whether you are driving or not and the TABC requires that we not serve anyone that is at risk of intoxication. We are very diligent in that responsibility. Also, we... More

This place is visually the most impressive winery in the area, but in my opinion the wines are very average. They do a pretty hard sell on the wine-club, even though we showed no interest throughout our tasting. Nice folks, nice facility, but I don't think they are pushing the envelope in any way with their product.

Although we are disappointed with an atypical (for us) two star review we respect your opinion and are grateful you acknowledged the amenities. However, I have to say that not liking a wine and calling the wines average are two different things. Our wines garnered 14 gold and double gold medals in the largest US competitions in California in the... More

Did some wine tasting which was really interesting since we never had Texan wine before. The wine was pretty good and the service at the tasting was great. However, this place was over crowded with screaming bachelorette parties and all kinds of groups. Very different from wine tasting in for example Europe where the focus is on the wine, not... More

I am very sorry the crowds diminished your experience. I would have felt the same way. This time of year is exceptionally busy and while we have put policies in place to limit the crowds we still get full (see other negative reviews because they couldn't get in). We are continuing to do more things to reduce the crowd level.... More
