Tuscany in Texas!

Fredericksburg, Texas, has become known for its wonderful selection of local wine shops, wineries and vineyards. One of the premiere wine and vineyard experiences can be found at Grape Creek Vineyards, located on Wine Road 290.

At Grape Creek, tours and tastings are offered in the gorgeous and romantic setting of a beautiful rustic villa sitting atop a hill surrounded by lush grapevines. It truly feels like "Tuscany in the Texas Hill Country!"

Grape Creek is a family owned and operated, award winning winery with a state of the art production facility, rich legacy and intriguing history. Owners, Brian and Jennifer Heath, strive to create an atmosphere that will "refresh your heart and replenish your spirit."

Grape Creek Vineyards currently produces between 17 and 19 wines. They have received over 100 medals in the last two years. Their best known wines include:
  • Cabernet Trois (a blend of cabernet sauvignon, cab franc and ruby cab)
  • Cabernet Blanc ( a semi sweet rose' of cabernet sauvignon)
  • Bellissimo (a super Tuscan style-sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon)
  • Mosaic (a Bordeaux style blend)

The Grape Creek experience has also recently expanded to include a full tasting room and retail shop located at 251 East Main Street, in the heart of Fredericksburg's main shopping district. Plan a visit soon!
