What a beautiful scenery and facility in which to taste incredible wines and a very affordable experience. We sampled 13 red and white varietals at $25. Of 9 highly-rated wineries in the valley that we sampled, this was our absolute favorite and we highly recommend it to those who want good wines and good times. The best part was the warm and sincere welcome and hosting we experienced from all of the staff as well as the informative lessons we received. A must on your list.

Y'ALL (guests) BE NICE!!! Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves for how you treat the staff who actually show up to work to help you have a nice day in the Texas Wine Country.
Kudos to the Becker Vineyards staff, who despite being very obviously short staffed, provided the best service possible and a wonderful wine tasting experience. Tanya was absolutely fantastic and we enjoyed the wines, the service and the beautiful atmosphere.
Great job Becker staff, y'all are doing awesome and you are appreciated!! Thank you for all of your hard work. I'm so sorry some people can't follow the rules or can't be more patience and feel like being ugly is going to get them their way.

**Example**We visited this past Saturday and were a group of 18 who made reservations (pretty obvious, if you can read, according to Becker's website that a group over 7 people needs to have a reservation). We came in behind a group of maybe about 13 (bachelorettes) that did not have reservations and were just berating this poor hostess (I would have been in tears if I was this hostess) because they were not getting their way even though the hostess was trying her best to accommodate them given the size of the group with no reservations. The hostess had to go get a manager and they continued to be rude and were bullying the manager like temper tantrum throwing toddlers. We were sat at our reservation table by the very nice hostess while the manager dealt with the rude group, so I don't know the outcome, but I hope they were refused service based on how they were acting. I'm sure this is one of many verbal abuse encounters the poor staff has to put up within a day from guests. Y'ALL BE NICE!!

Went to the tasting room in Fredericksburg Texas. It was very good. We had a selection of six wines and a charcuterie board. The reds were robust and had many aspects to them. The port at the end was a pleasant finish. Two people, a charcuterie board with six different wines was $80. And you get to keep the vineyard etched glasses.

Becker was the first winery we stopped at on the second day of our two day winery tour. It's a little more than a mile off the beaten path (i.e. 290) and is an absolutely breathtaking estate. Out of the seven wineries we visited during our trip, Becker easily was the most beautiful of all. We were one of the first visitors to arrive that day and they were a little unorganized from having a function the night prior. They don't do reservations for small parties so we were walk-ins and paid $25pp for their basic wine experience. For $25pp you get a free glass and 6 tickets to use for sampling (we were also greeted with a sampling of their rose when we arrived). This was the only winery we went to that used a ticket system. I'm not a fan because it really limits your experience - felt like going to a bar vs. a wine tasting. Additionally, the young man who served us knew very little about the wines or the winery. Their wine was on par with the other wineries in the area but the "tasting" experience overall was underwhelming.

Becker also provides complimentary tours of their facility on the hour (no reservations needed). During the tour, you visit their crush pad, fermentation room, barrel room, bottling room, and library. We found this tour to be more informative than Grape Creek (which we had to pay for) and that helped make up for the tasting experience.

Since we had some time before our next stop, we purchased a bottle of rose and spent the time enjoying their beautiful estate - at $25 this was a much better value than paying $16 each for a glass of wine.

Overall Becker Vineyards is probably one of the most exquisite wineries in the area and is recommended if you want to stop and a have a glass of wine (or a bottle) and get a free tour of their facility but their tasting experience was underwhelming compared to others.

I will say that the ground are very, very lovely. The people who work there seem very nice as well. We went during the middle of the week so the crowd was minimal. We got a bottle of wine for $30 (the chardonnay), and I can tell you that it was the best chardonnay that we ever had. I went back up to the counter and ordered a glass of petite syrah. Admittedly, I did not look at the prices. I assumed that since a bottle was about $30, that a glass should not be that much. With tax, it was over $16. Seriously over $16 for a glass of wine is ridiculous. I have been all over Europe and had some of the finest wines in the world. I never came even close to paying $16 for a glass of that wine.

Again, the grounds are lovely and they do allow outside food if you want to picnic. I highly recommend, though, that you just buy by the bottle as it will be a lot cheaper than buying by the glass.

Seven is too many for a wine tasting. Not something I thought I would say, but when the wine lacks a good variety seven is too many to find ones to taste. It was truly a painful experience close to the end trying to force the last of the wine down, so I felt like I got my money's worth. The person pouring the wine was scary, she was sharing too much of her own experiences rather than giving a good explanation of the wine. Would not recommend, will not ever go back. None of the wines warranted even wanting to buy a bottle.

So we read great reviews on Becker and we went there because they accept "walk-ins". There were 3 of us. For $80.00 each of us got 6 golden tickets for tastings. You actually a "welcome" tasting so you end up with 7. First off, there are not nearly enough staff to serve the tasting samples compared to the people wanting them. They could be more informative about the wines etc... after we got a tasting we had to wait and wait for the next one, again, not enough staff to meet the number of guests. Outside was nice. Personally, we did not really like any of the wines. I ended up giving away our tickets to another couple.

We came to Becker's at noon today due to their "Grape Stomping" event and were refused wine tasting because we did not have a reservation. We were informed, "Groups that are 6 people or less, do not need a reservation." We asked to be divided into 2 groups, there were maybe 5 other customers there, plenty of wait staff. "Nope," we were told, "it's our policy!" The wine tasting manager was less than accommodating, so we took our business across the street to Signor Winery and were treated outstandingly!! We spent at least $1000 dollars. Maybe a $1000 isn't a lot, but the poor customer service was upsetting and we won't be back!! In fact, we will let our friends & friends of friends know about the rude behavior of the Tasting Room Manager & how we were treated!! This was really poor customer service due to the staff's unwillingness to work with us. We had driven from San Antonio, excited to stomp grapes, buy food & wine, but were really disappointed with the staff's attitude!! There was no live music at noon as advertised also! Signor had live music and an awesome wait staff! We joined their wine club!!

We arrived mid afternoon on New Year's Eve and the place was packed. We found a spot to squeeze in and were greeted by a very lovely young lady who proceeded to provide us with the most enjoyable tasting.

I must apologise as I have forgotten her name, however, she hails from Lubbock TX, and if you are fortunate enough to have her, count your blessings,

Yes, the tasting is $20.00 plus tax, however, if you are in the military ( with ID available to show ) then your tasting is complimentary. Two of our group qualified and we were delighted and impressed. Thank You Becker Vineyards.

Highly suggest that Becker be on your tasting list when you are in The Fredericksburg area.

We are glad you got to enjoy your time with us! We started bud break last week and should be harvesting mid-to-late July and finish in September. Kaily I has helped us during her breaks from school. We hope to see her again this summer! We agree - she's great! Thank you for coming by!

I like Becker Vineyards wine and I frequently buy it at the liquor store or grocery store, but this week I made my first visit to the winery in Stonewall with some family. The hill country setting and gardens are beautiful, as are the facilities, but the $30/person price was outrageous for the tiny amount of wine we tried in the mixed white/red flight. I've been to quite a number of wineries in several states over the years, but this was the stingiest. With so many other wineries to try in the Texas Hill Country, I will not be returning, but I will still buy their wine from time to time.

Thank you for coming out to visit us! We pour 1 ounce size pours because of the beverage commission recommendation. The seated wine flight tasting is $30 + tax which includes 5 wine samples and the souvenir Riedel wine glass with our Becker Vineyards logo. The 6th sample is the complimentary sample of the day. We are sorry we disappointed you. Thank you for the feedback.
