Hilmy Cellars is cute and the wines are decent. The staff is very knowledgeable too. My one complaint is that the tasting 'table/bar' had no chairs to sit down in. I totally understand why and realize that the tasting room is not a bar to...More

Believe it or not, this is good wine! I am not a fan of most Texas wines. The terroir is not appealing to me and most are too sweet. This is a winery convenient on Hwy 290 and the tasting room is nice. The hostess...More

I attended a special meal that had been prepared by reservation only. The food was very good, the scenery was lovely and the 2 Great Pyrenees dogs (Simon and Anastasia) added much to the evening. The entertainment, however, was poor. The next day our party...More

My girlfriend and I are both red wine fans so keep that in mind - we aren't "sweet wine" drinkers at all. We are members of their wine club. This place is our favorite winery for many reasons. First of course is the product. We...More
