Hilmy Cellars is a delightful winery with a lovely tasting room and knowledgeable staff. My husband and I found several wines we each liked and brought home with us! It will be a regular stop on our visits to Fredricksburg!

I wish I remembered the guy that helped us! I have been on so many wine tours and he by far have been the most knowledgeable! The wines were also amazing! I would absolutely go back on my next visit to Texas!

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

Hilmy gets it right...cool atmosphere, approachable servers, and great wine. We’ve been coming here since they opened and the vibe hasn’t changed, which is unfortunately not the case for many wineries along 290. The commitment seems to be focusing on what they do well, just...More

Hilmy has great dry wines—both white and red—that will delight any serious dry wine drinker. We liked everything we tasted here, something uncommon in many wineries we've visited (in Texas or California). The staff is very knowledgeable on the wines and techniques used to make...More

This was a nice stop along the wine stresse along highway 290. They are a smaller vineyard than some others, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Their main production is along the white wine varieties. Their tastings were all very good, but nothing that...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
