Had a choice between 4 tasting categories.. I tasted the 5 dry wines. All were ok. Nothing stood out. Would pass on this one and try somewhere else.

Bingham is certainly no stranger to the Texas wine industry. Having supplied many wineries with their quality grapes, it is not uncommon to see Bingham as the source vineyard on Texas wine labels. This multigenerational family has roots in Texas farming that goes back to the early 1900s. Cotton, peanuts, black-eyed peas, and sesame seeds have and continue to be part of their agricultural heritage. They started the process in the 1990s to be certified organic. In 2003 they planted their first grapevines of Viognier and Gewürztraminer. That has since grown to over 200 acres of 25+ varieties of grapes. About seventy five percent of their grape harvest goes to various wineries throughout Texas. It is interesting to see how different winemakers at wineries make their wine, even with the same source and vintage, ultimately still tasting uniquely their own, which is a nod to the ever-diverse creativity going on among wineries. Bingham Vineyards keeps about 10% of the grape harvest for their own wine production, with the rest going out for sale as bulk wine. Wine production is kept small to craft quality boutique wines. They made their first Bingham bottle in 2014 and in 2015 they opened a tasting room in Grapevine, Texas. In 2018, they opened another tasting room on the eastern outskirts of Fredericksburg. We visited the Fredericksburg location and were quite impressed with both the rustic decor and the wines. A lot of reclaimed wood was used in the building construction and with the high ceilings it gives a more inviting and relaxed feel. So, what about their estate wines? Well, they do have an impressive selection that you can choose from. Pick your favorite flight style and you cannot go wrong. There is literally something for everyone here. For the white wine flight, we started off with the 2019 Trebbiano. The citrus and lemon notes along with light acids really highlighted some of the best flavors of this wine. Roussanne has certainly been making a great strong showing in Texas white wines. Their 2019 vintage has that rich feel and balanced acids that will make you love this sipper. But wait! There is also a 2018 Reserve Roussanne that you must try. With a touch of oak and good vanilla notes combined with that rich, full mouthfeel, we think you might fall in love with this one. Many long time Texas wine fans know how Viognier helped make a strong showing for Texas whites and their 2019 wine is right on the mark. It is a bit softer than some other Texas Viogniers, with a light creaminess. We can see why this 2020 San Francisco Viognier winner stood out. Marsanne is another up and coming white wine in the state and their 2019 release has just the right floral notes combined with the flavors of lemon and pineapple. Texas Rosé wines are also seeing increased interest over the last few years and their 2019 Sunset Rosé is no exception. Made from Mourvèdre and Carignan, this smooth drinking Rosé is a great Texas chiller to refresh your palate with on warm summer days. You will be equally pleased with their reds and the 2018 Turnrow is a great starter. Made with Mourvèdre, Dolcetto, Carignan, and Tempranillo, you might be asking where is that artisan pizza at to pair with it. Like Carignan? They have great 2018 vintage that is both smooth with a hint of spice. Tempranillo is certainly the “big” red grape that helped put Texas on the wine map and their 2018 release is on par with good Texas Temps. It is full bodied with lots of rich plums to envelope your palate. Their 2017 reserve Tempranillio as some earthy undertones, is rich in blackberry fruit and has a great long finish. The single varietal 2018 Dolcetto is bold with big intense fruit aromas. They also have a good Bordeaux style blend made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. This 2017 Bordeaux style blend called Dugout, named after their family’s original homestead heritage, is quite well balanced, has a smooth feel, rich berries, moderate acids, and a good lingering finish. It made a great showing at the 2020 San Francisco as a gold medal winner! For the sweets, do checkout the 2019 Moscato Giallo It has just the right lushness on the nose and that silky, citrus feel that puts the yum in every drop. You should not leave without trying the Fine ‘n Dandy sweet red. As a nod to Eddie Bingham, this light red wine has some pecan flavors to it for that added delight. This is a great tasting room to visit. The staff will make you feel warm and welcomed. Additionally, the team in the tasting room are quite knowledgeable and will even have some excellent pairing suggestions. The price points on the wines are quite affordable, so stock up. Visit, stay, and enjoy!

Numerous wines to choose from. They use only use 25% of their wines are used and the rest are sold. Family run business with 21 kids. One of the nicest ones I visited. I am coming back tomorrow.

This experience was incredibly disappointing. I had booked online 2 wine tastings and a fresh Pickens cheese tray. We got seated immediately but waited a good deal of time before our server greeted us. He was visibly sweaty and was not very professional. He didn’t know anything about the wines, everything he said to us he read off the bottle. He even skipped a whole glass in our tasting. The fresh Pickens charcuterie board was $30 and it came out on cardboard and was not worth $30. To top it off the day we went was very loud with a drunken bridal party. The experience was horrible, we don’t recommend.

My wife and I were in the Fredericksburg area for a weekend getaway. We had done tour of another nearby winery and happened to stop at Bingham Family Vineyards - glad we did! The tasting room was very relaxed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The wines were superb and they have a nice selection of wines. I normally don’t do wine clubs, but made an exception after visiting Bingham’s, hearing their story and tasting their wines. They have been farming in the Texas High Plains for many years and all of their wine is 100% Texas grown and produced. If you are in the area, I would highly recommend stopping in and trying their wines.

Beautiful, knowledgeable and patient for newbies. Mary & Steven handled all of us with a great attitude & even though being professional they were very friendly.

Great store to shop in next door. Yee-Haw western themed, very reasonable prices.

We went to a wine tasting and had an awful experience. Some of the withe wines tasted like they were rotten and the red wines tasted like a high volume of alcohol, I could not taste the wine.
