Be sure to get your tickets right away as there are a limited number available and this event sells out every year!  Winery pickup choices will be narrowed down upon delivery of the Tasting Passport books on Wednesday, March 22 (all listed wineries will still participate in the event). After Wednesday, March 22 these will be the ONLY wineries available for pickup choice.  Your pickup winery CAN NOT be changed after 3/22/17. Please note you can not pickup your Tasting Passport until the first day of the Event, March 31st. 

Enjoy the Sights and Tastes of the Hill Country this Spring...Join us for the Wine & Wildflower Journey!

The weathers warm, the wildflowers are in bloom and its time for the Wine & Wildflower Journey! We invite you to join us for a full 17 days in the picturesque Texas Hill Country, sipping and sampling award winning wines at 46 unique Hill Country Wineries.  Be sure to get your tickets right away, as there are a limited number avaliable and this event sells out every year. 

The Wine & Wildflower Journey is all about enjoying award winning WINE in the picturesque Texas Hill Country! Your $70 couples ticket or $45 individual ticket includes ONE Tasting Passport booklet per ticket, a full complimentary tasting at each winery (as determined by winery) with a limit of 4 wineries per day and a 15% discount on 3 bottle purchases.

The average tasting fee at participating wineries is $15/ per person…adding up to $60/ per person if visiting 4 wineries a day- and that’s just for ONE day! You have 17 days to visit all 46 wineries. Your Wine & Wildflower Journey ticket is already saving you money, not including the discounts on wine purchases!

Each ticket will include ONE Tasting Passport to be picked up at your first winery (selected at time of ticket purchase).  Each winery you visit will stamp your booklet on the day you visit the winery and taste. Each day you can taste and get stamped at 4 wineries total. Couples tickets will receive ONE booklet but both people will recieve a tasting at each winery visited.

The limit to 4 winery tastings per 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.

We invite you to come and experience all the sights and tastes of the Hill Country this Spring!
