….Another blog post dedicated to wine? Me? Nooooooo. Just kidding. Of course I am writing yet ANOTHER blog post dedicated to wine. Except this time, I am talking Fredericksburg. For those of you who don’t know where Fredericskburg is… A) You’re missing out. B) I had no clue either. C) TEXAS Y’ALL. While I visited Fredericksburg a few weeks ago and am just getting around to writing this, I am STILL surprised that Texas has a “wine region”. And a darn good one at that. Out of all of the wine regions I have visited, Fredericksburg lands in my top 5. It has character, southern sass, good wine, and better views. Plus if you find yourself wandering the main street downtown, then you’re still in Fredericksburg, and you’re still doing it right.
So, let’s get to it! Out of the 25ish wineries in the German town of Fredericksburg, I have narrowed it down to my three favorites! And one kind of favorite – but mostly because you can take good pictures in the back. Shameless.
Becker Vineyards takes my #1 spot. Not only is the wine fantastic, specifically the rosé, the service was impeccable. Nestled away from the street in 42 acres of vineyards, Becker sits atop the rolling hills of Fredericksburg. A spacious indoors and outdoors makes this the perfect place for wine tasting.
The best part about Grape Creek is the gorgeous outdoor space. So buy a bottle, enjoy the Italian vibes, and settle in. You won’t be disappointed with the views.
Only in Texas y’all. I mean seriously, can you pass up a place named ‘Fat Ass’? Not specifically known for having the best wine (in my opinion), this winery is quirky, fun, and has tons of personality. Plus, it is right across the street from Becker so you can’t help but stop by! Note: The type of wine they make here is sweet, fruity wine (i.e. watermelon, strawberry, etc). If you’re into that, cool. If not, it still has a ton of personality.
Remember when I told you that I had a “kind of favorite” winery? Well, this is it. Barons Creek didn’t stick out to me for their fun atmosphere, good wine, or great service. Instead it stuck out to me for the great picture opportunities that the back provides. I don’t know that I would head back here, but it is worth noting.
And that my friends, is Fredericksburg. I hope you have the chance to stay longer than I did.
