We decided to do the Wine Road tour (Hwy 290 from Johnson City to Fredericksburg) which has about 10 wineries along the route. Woodrose Winery is about halfway between. You drive south on Woodrose Lane (a gravel road) for several blocks til you find yourself in the Texas countryside. Although Woodrose is one of the smaller wineries along the route, we found it to be the most enjoyable.
Many of the larger wineries right along 290 parking lots were jammed with limousines and even a few buses. Some had enormous tasting rooms where you stand crowded up to one of several bars and hurried through your metered wine samplings. A couple wineries charged up to $10 to $12 to taste 5 or 6 wines but for that price would let/make you keep the glass (I figure that's so they don't have the bother/cost of washing glasses). I believe Woodrose charged us $5 to sample about 5 wines. We ordered one flight of whites and one of reds from their tastings menu; then shared our samples, so we got thru a lot of wine tastes for a decent price. Since it was around noon, we also ordered one of their cheese, meat and cracker trays.
Woodrose has a front deck and also a large, several layered wooden deck out back filled with tables and chairs surrounded by oaks. They had a band playing, so we got to sample our wine sitting outside under the oaks listening to music. A waitress would go from table to table carrying several bottles of wine in each hand(quite a feat) and pour your next sample when you were ready.
