Beautiful facility offering wine tours and tastings. Their strength is in their reds. They have a wonderful picnic ground area to enjoy the day. We also attended a wedding later that evening. Beautiful.

Beautiful place but person behind the tasting bar ruined the visit. Told us to move as a tour bus was coming in then ignored us. Also, did not explain the wines. She should find another line of work. We should have asked for our money back

So many wines to choose from and a great view all around and even inside. Accommodating atmosphere, with the ability to do your tastings inside or outside under some fans and misters on the patio. Tours were frequent, informative, and brief! Most impressive wines, they have something for any taste you may have. Service was great and knowledgeable and you can tell they really enjoyed being there, our server was Don and he was great!

The only downside was that it is so popular that it is fairly busy, go early or on the weekday if this may bother you... it was big and open enough for us to still have a great time (spent about 2 hours there enjoying people and our 6 tastings).

Our wine tasting guide was Arturo and he was friendly and helpful. My mom and I split a tasting ($10 for 6 w/ a souvenir glass) and he graciously served both of us. Our wine tastes are very different, but he was unflappable. I chose a delicious limited edition reserve chardonnay for around $25. The tasting room was busy, but we were acknowledged immediately. There is a decent gift shop with lavender products for those who do not drink wine. And the grounds are beautiful with many picture perfect spots.

After reading the other reviews of Becker, I definitely recommend going on Sunday or a week day if possible. The wineries in Hill Country are very popular with visitors from Austin and San Antonio. Visited Becker for the second time on Sunday afternoon and it was busy, but not impossible to taste at the very large bar. Tours are offered at certain times, but we missed one. The winery is beautiful and the lavender fields spectacular when in bloom. They had just cut them, so April is the best time to go. The wines are excellent and our server, Henri, who is French, really knew how to entertain. The wine glasses, included with the tasting fee, are the largest of any of the wineries. Many options for wine accessories and lavender products, and you can sit outside on the sheltered patio with a glass of wine after they close. There are several other wineries within a short drive, all worth a visit.
