What a great drive from Austin! I'd never been this far on Hamilton Pool Road, and it's worth it just to make the drive to the winery. On the Sunday we visited, they were offering DELICIOUS authentic Texas, pit-smoked barbecue for sale on their grounds and had live music to entertain. It was a lovely, relaxed atmosphere outdoors, and I... More

West cave is a wonderful little winery near Austin as long as the Pedernales is not flooding. Then it is a wonderful winery near Johnson City 😀. Allen and Margaret are passionate about their wine and their guests! The reds are coming into their own and the whites have always been fantastic. Plus they are reasonable.

Thank you for the wonderful review! The one-lane bridge across the Pedernales can be a problem when it rains, but it is a gorgeous drive on all other days. Once at Westcave, though, we do our best to treat you like an honored guest in our home. We hope you will visit again this fall. Allan is bottling all the... More

We visited late in the day and wanted to do a tasting and have a class of wine. We did enjoy the wines, especially the Estate Syrah. However, the staff was more focused on drinking their own wine than assisting us with the tasting. Additionally, there was one other gentleman doing a tasting at the same time really trying to...

The 3 of us drove through beautiful hill country roads to this gem of a winery growing their own grapes, more each year, to enjoy wonderful wines and delightful people. This was a trip well worth the time. We will be back.

We did have a fantastic time visiting this winery. Very Rustic Vineyards with haystacks and great area to sit outside and dream the day away. The staff was knowledgeable and oh so friend with Texas charm. However the wine was just average. It was good but not exceptional.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your March visit. Westcave is one of the few Hill Country vineyards where you are encouraged to roam. As you noted, we spend a lot of time educating the staff so they can share specific information about the wines and stories. Our wines are quite different in that we... More

Our second (and upon tasting, final) stop in our little exploration of wine country out here, the selection and taste is simply phenomenal. The people there do an amazing job of explaining what goes into the different wines and what makes it unique, such as all of it being grown in Texas. Most of what we had you simply cannot... More

Westcave Cellars is just down the road from one of Austin's most popular attractions, Hamilton Pool - so you must keep going and visit this lovely place! Whether you want to stroll through the vines enjoying the beautiful setting, hear some live music under the stars on nice evenings, or find some truly great Texas wines to add to your... More
