“Beautiful January day in the Texas Hillcountry”

Grape Creek Vineyards Fredericksburg
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Grape Creek Vineyards is a wine club winery. We are designed for the enjoyment of our club members. Of course, we welcome new guests to taste and tour and decide if they want to join as well. We also believe wine is a pleasure, and not a party. Our guests and our wine club members like this approach, and we appreciate their positive reviews! Trip Advisor users may notice most of our negative reviews are either because we cater to club members, or because we endeavor to create a wine experience not a party place. While this may impose certain limits on larger groups and winery access, we want to stress that our focus is on wine appreciation. We hope yours is too!

“Beautiful January day in the Texas Hillcountry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

This is a wonderful winery. We visited four and made our way to Grape Creek late in the day on a Saturday afternoon. After a brief wait were able to find a spot at the tasting counter and tasted some really, really good award winning reds. Grape Creek is a beautiful facility, with beautiful grounds. They even had live music on the outside seating area. Worth the trip!

“Napa Style in the Texas Hill Country”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Grape Creek is one of the better wineries in the Texas Hill Country 10 miles east of Fredericksburg, TX. The winding drive through vine lined entrance was reminiscent of the entrance to several Napa Valley vineyards. The well appointed, large tasting room and outdoor seating area is a close cousin to the experience you have in California, but with a Texas twist, as live country and folk music plays in the background. The wines are some of the best Texas has to offer. While not quite up to California standards, they are closing the gap. It took a while for California wines to compete with the French, and Texas wines from the likes of Grape Creek, Becker, Messina Hoff, to mention a few, are improving their offerings, and are on a tract to eventually be well accepted outside the Lone Star State.

“Wonderful place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

This was my first time to tour a wine vineyard so I have nothing to compare it to but it was such an amazing experience from the beauty of the vineyard to the wonderful tour guide and wine tasting it couldn't have gone any better. I can't wait to go back and do it again!

“great winery to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We enjoyed our visit. We stopped in around 4 p.m. on a Thursday. A tasting of six wines is $12 per person. You get to keep your glass at the end of the tasting. We enjoyed a few of the wines and the ambiance of the tasting room was nice. We did not do a tour.

“Great Texas wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We love Grape Creek Vineyards. The grounds are immaculate and just plain beautiful. With a bottle of their good wine, cheese and fruit plate makes for a perfect afternoon. We belong to their wine club black label and receive a shipment every quarter. Getting the 15% off on every bottle of wine helps too. Why drink any other wine when you can drink good TEXAS wine. Of course this is coming from a strictly TEXAS girl.
