    Our family spent an enjoyable afternoon at the Driftwood Winery enjoying the beautiful views from the pour room. The staff is incredibly friendly and the spot is wonderful – the wines are decent with the cabernets and the desert wines being the best. A really nice way to spend an afternoon in the hill country.

    Delicious Italian varietals. Excellent Verementino and Montepulciano. Lovely outdoor space. Unfortunately no tasting at this time only bottle purchase and appetizers.

    We had not been here before and were brought here as a treat by a local who had visited once for a special venue the winery had. They were impressed with the place and treated us to a visit and wine.
    The place is REALLY off the beaten path and there were no other visitors while we were there on a Wednesday early afternoon.
    It is a lovely setting with a large outdoor patio under the oaks trees and a nice breeze blowing in. There is just countryside around it so very peaceful. They have a really old rusted car in front and a trolley car that is used as serving bar during outdoor events.
    They are in the process of building more buildings but the main tasting room is a great stone building.
    When you enter you immediately smell the rustic rock and enter into a grand room.
    We were greeted immediately by Pablo when we approached the very large bar. He immediately handed us the tasting menus which were nice with a dry erase marker to mark five wine choices for $18.
    One of us did a tasting and the other two bought a glass of wine. One glass was the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon ($10 glass) and was a hearty pour. The other glass of wine was the first white wine on the tasting list, I don’t remember the name. It was $8 for a glass and for some reason was not as hearty of a pour. Both of these wines were good choices.
    The person who did the tasting tried one white and the rest red and all were good tasting portions. She prefers red and thought the 2018 Cab was nice but had to have a glass after of the Red Reserve, which she especially liked.
    The tasting room is huge and has a large leather couch seating area in front of the mammoth fireplace and a separate room with table seating.
    They have a few shelves with gift items. There logo wine glass is a large embossed glass for $10 and is not offered as part of the tasting, which some places do.
    It was an enjoyable visit made even more so by Pablo who, although rather new there, was very informative, friendly, confident and professional.

    We took a road trip to introduce a friend to this awesome little distillery when we heard she loved Sotol! She was so excited to find it in Texas!
    It was too hot to enjoy the lovely outdoor space, but the inside was nice and cool. Sam was awesome explaining all the new additions since our last viist. We had a very enjoyable time and loved all the drinks we tried.
    It's a 2 hour drive for us or we would return more often!

    A relative held a surprise 40th birthday party at Vista Brewery on a Sunday afternoon. We all drove in from San Antonio, Houston, and Austin. She was assigned a private area off the main tasting room which had 2 long picnic tables and another table for food. She ordered a couple charcuterie boards (good), soft pretzels (ok), and bowls of potato chips (good). We all ordered our own beer and drinks. I got the large bottle of Texas Keeper #1 Hard Cider ($23 after tax and tip). It was served in a large bottle in an ice bucket which kept it to the perfect temperature. I split it with my sister and it was the perfect amount. Since I’m not a beer drinker, this was perfect for me. There’s something for everyone here - a live band for the adults and lots of space for young children to run around. We really enjoyed it and I’d be happy to return. I also loved the rustic decor, including old fashioned sinks in the bathrooms and the tables and charcuterie boards made from reclaimed wood from the property. Very cool!

    2nd year attending Texas Egg Festival. It’s a BBQ festival that highlights food, drinks, cooking techniques/recipes with The Egg Ceramic Grill/Smoker. We met a couple women there last year and several more this year. We actually ran into the friends we met last year and had a blast again this year. The food is very good and the picnic groove is very nice for this kind of event, plenty of shade, regular restrooms-no porta-potties and pavilion for music and awards ceremony. Marcy Grace Brand preformed the past two years are very good. Best for adults due to food, music and drink. No much to do for children other then small play ground. Recommend closed toed shoes due to sandy ground. Not wheelchair or walker friendly but ok for anyone who can walk on varied mostly level terrain. Highly recommend for a day of fun, relaxation, tasting and voting on a variety of delicious foods prepared on The Big Green Egg!

    This venue is located directly on Ranch Road 12 in between Dripping Springs and Wimberley and easy to find in either direction.
    Years ago we had been to the original Mercer Dancehall on Mercer Street but had not been back to the new location since we are from out of town.
    We visited recently and thoroughly enjoyed it.
    Parking was no issue in the unpaved area in front and to the side of the venue.
    There are steps to climb at the entrance and didn’t notice if they had a handicap ramp.
    The open porch deck has table seating outside partially around the building.
    Just inside the door you pay as you enter if you are there for a dance, which we were. The admission that Sunday afternoon was $10 each and $15 for minors and you have to be at least 17. They do take credit cards and will hold the number on file for an open tab and you can pay when you leave which made it convenient to order drinks/food etc. during the time you are there.
    The Sunday dance we went to was from 3 pm to 6 pm which is a great time if you are from out of town so travel isn’t in the late evening.
    The front room has table seating on one side and the full bar on the other with reasonable pricing (ie can Lone Star $3, Rum/Coke $5, Topo Chico $3).
    The large room with the nice dance floor has tables all around with both four top tables and larger tables for groups.
    There is a door to the outside deck/patio if you prefer to sit out there and listen.
    You probably want to arrive around 2:45 if you want a smaller table as they go fast or you can reserve for a charge.
    There is also bar stool seating in a back corner but seems that is the “singles” hang out
    The crowd was mostly 55 and over with a few couples in their 40’s. No kids running around was nice for the older crowd.
    The bathrooms are through a door down a ramp and were clean rustic with metal stalls and pipe fitting pure hanger and fit in just right with the country western theme.
    The band, Monty Good and the Honky Tonk Heroes was enjoyed by an almost full house crowd and they played traditional country and swing.
    The staff was friendly and helpful.
    No masks were required of staff or guests and there was sanitizer when you walked in.
    This is a great venue and so glad it wasn’t closed down when had to move from downtown Mercer. This location is perfect for this and what a great job for a dancehall.
    PLUS they have cottages on the property for rent as well. We didn’t rent one but a nice idea for a late night.
    We will be back in the future!
