Texan wine may not be internationally renowned or celebrated, but that is certainly a mistake; one which undoubtedly plays into the hands of those who are in the know. The Fredericksburg wine producing region of the Lone Star State, also known as Texas Hill Country, has dozens of excellent wineries and vineyards, making tours and tastings an increasingly popular way to enjoy the grape right at the source.

Original settlers cultivated the native mustang grapes to produce wines in the wider Fredericksburg region, but nowadays you’ll find a broad array of varietals, with Viognier and Malbec among the more common ones. Tours of Fredericksburg often start out from the town itself, although some occasionally venture out from Austin or San Antonio as well. Here are five of the best wine and tasting tours of Fredericksburg, taking into account, among other things, the number of wineries visited, the value for money and the reviews of past guests. Cheers!
