I am not a person who usually writes reviews, but this is an exception. Brandi and Matt picked us up at our river walk hotel in San Antonio and took 4 of us on a tour of the hill country vineyards. They are very personable and have a broad knowledge of wine and the local vineyards. They took the time to observe our preferences at the first tasting to tailor the remaining stops to find exceptional hill country wines we would like and to expose us to some varieties and wines we were not familiar with. Take the full day tour with an opportunity to see downtown Federicksburg. I would have preferred a shuttle with group seating as opposed to forward facing bench seats, but this is the only improvement that comes to mind. They provide exceptional customer service, from the cooler to keep your purchases fresh, to a small bag of treats.

What a great way to spend a day! The owners, Matt and Brandy, and true professionals and very knowledgeable about wine and the local area. They are very down to earth and easy to talk to. They take care of everything for you and think of all the little things like bringing a cooler to keep any wine you buy throughout the day cool as you visit various places. Sister Creek Winery was great and I highly recommend that. They pick you up, take you where you need to go, and are full of interesting information and local area recommendations. This tour is a great way to spend the day, complete with time for lunch and sightseeing in Fredericksburg. Highly recommended, you can't go wrong.

if you want a great tour of local Texas wineries from a pair of knowledgeable and friendly guides who think of everything, this is your thing! even if you just want some wine in the Texas countryside, you should do this!
They think of everything. You are picked up in a clean van from your hotel's steps. Then, goodie bags in lap, you are taken around the countryside while Matt tells you all sorts of interesting facts abut SA and the surrounding areas. They are both so friendly that the conversation was easy and great! We went to two wineries and were dropped off for lunch in a very cute town called Fredricksburg.
I cannot recommend this tour enough. They think of everything and will take you on your own private tour of these wineries. You don't even pay until the end.

Not a better way to spend a day that on a wine tour thru some great Texas Wineries.
Guides were knowledgeable and fun!

I am thinking about giving this tour as a gift to my daughter and her boyfriend

Because the owners ARE the tour guide and driver, they really care about your experience. The pick you up, take you out for an absolutely lovely day (including as much time as you'd like in Fredericksburg), and then bring you back to where you started. You don't have to worry about a thing. They cover the pouring/tasting fees, bring along snacks, store your wine in a cooler if you buy any, and are both knowledgeable and delightful. They know where to go, and you really don't have to worry about a thing. They could not have been more accommodating. Worth every penny!
