October is our favorite month here at Texas Hill Country Wineries because it is Texas Wine Month! We have been celebrating Texas Wine Month for 18 years and want to make this years celebration the best. There are now 48 members who will participate in the Event and all are very excited to help you celebrate this October.

Due to recent events of Hurricane Harvey and the effects on our Texas neighbors,

Texas Hill Country Wineries will be donating $5 of each Texas Wine Month Passport ticket sold to Hurricane Harvey relief support. 

We thank you for your support! #TexasStrong

Visit the WINERIES page of our website for details on each winery including hours.

*All wineries require reservations for groups of 8 or more guests.

Your ticket, valid throughout the entire month of October, includes a full complimentary tasting (as determined by winery) at each winery with a limit of 4 wineries a day and a 15% discount on 3 bottle purchases at each winery.  All of these benefits for a ticket price of $70/couple or $40/individual.

The average tasting fee at the 48 participating wineries is $11/person…adding up to $44/person if visiting 4 wineries a day.  And that’s just for ONE day!  You have 31 days to visit 48 wineries. Your Texas Wine Month Passport ticket is already saving you money, not including the discounts on wine purchases! 

The limit to 4 winery tastings a day with your ticket is a way for THCW to promote responsible drinking during the events.  We do hope you can take your time and enjoy each winery more this way, instead of rushing through tastings and getting to the next stop.  This allows for a more intimate experience at each winery, enjoying the wines and the people.

Each ticket will include a Texas Wine Month Tasting Passport to be picked up at your first winery (selected at time of ticket purchase).  Each winery you visit will stamp your passport on the day you visit the winery and taste.  Each day you can taste and get stamped at four wineries total.  Couples tickets will receive 1 booklet but both will get the tastings.

An entire month of enjoying 48 wineries in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, tasting your favorite wines and getting exclusive discounts! This is too good of a deal to pass up, so make sure to get tickets for your entire family and all of your friends!

YOUR TICKET INCLUDES:

• Full complementary tasting (as determined by winery) at each winery with a limit of 4 wineries a day (one tasting for individuals, two tastings for couples).  Wine glasses are NOT included.
• A 15% discount on 3 bottle purchases at each winery (winery choice and/or discount may exclude reserves, ports and wines already discounted)
• A Tasting Passport that will be stamped at each winery you visit (you MUST pickup your passport first and present to each winery to receive tastings)
