The Christmas Wine Affair

Make it a holly jolly holiday and join us in the Hill Country this December for the Christmas Wine Affair! Our member wineries have fully reopened and are ready to welcome you for on-premise wine tastings and bottle sales — you might just say its a Christmas miracle! With our wineries re-opened we have returned to our signature passport ticket benefits; this includes complimentary on-premise wine tastings and a 15% discount on 3+ bottle purchases at each of the 45 participating wineries. ‘Tis the season for socially distanced wine tastings in the Hill Country!

This is the time of year we’ve all been waiting for…a chill in the air, the hustle and bustle, baking, wrapping, fireplaces and the Christmas Wine Affair in the Hill Country! Savor all that Texas Wine Country has to offer this holiday season from December 4th – December 20th, sipping and sampling award winning wines at 45 unique Hill Country Wineries. Join us for one day of the event or all seventeen! There are a limited number of tickets available and each year is sold out weeks before the event. Don’t delay and miss out on all the holiday cheer that the Texas Wine Country has to offer!

Your Christmas Wine Affair ticket, valid December 4th – 20th, includes a full complimentary tasting (as determined by winery) at all 45 participating wineries 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 $65/couple or $45/individual. The average tasting fee at the 45 participating wineries is $25/person, making the total value of your passport over $750!  You’ll cover the cost of your passport, couple or individual, by just visiting and tasting at 4 wineries on the first day. Your Christmas Wine Affair ticket is already saving you money, not including 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 order will include a custom barcode that serves as your Digital Christmas Wine Affair Passport ticket. This barcode will be emailed to you upon completing your purchase and will be  scanned at each participating winery you visit. Each day you can taste and get scanned at four participating wineries total, visiting each winery once during the event. You have 17 days to enjoy 45 wineries in the beautiful Texas Wine 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! 

Please Note // Your Christmas Wine Affair Ticket is Non-Refundable. If you are unable to use your Christmas Wine Affair Passport you may give it away or sell it. In the unlikely event that the Christmas Wine Affair is cancelled, you can request to receive a voucher to use towards any future Texas Hill Country Wineries Passport Event in 2020 or 2021. Vouchers will only be offered if the event is cancelled.

Are there a limited number of tickets?

Yes and they typically sell out by the first weekend of the Trail.  We do not hold back any tickets.

What is the difference between Couples and Individuals tickets?

Couples tickets are good for ANY TWO people (husband/wife, sisters, mother/daughter, friends, etc).  Couples receive TWO tastings, both people must be present together for the couples tastings (ie: one can not receive tastings on the first day of the event and the other person on another day of the event at the same winery).

Individual tickets are for ONE person, you will receive ONE tasting at each participating winery.

I can’t use my ticket, can I get a refund?

No, but tickets are transferable so you can give it away or sell it.

What days is my ticket good for?

All 17 days of the event.

What wineries are included?

You can find a list the participating wineries on the Christmas Wine Affair ticket page, or you can find a list of them on our MAP page using the Christmas Wine Affair map tag.

I am giving this as a gift, can you change the name on the ticket?

The tickets are transferrable so it does not matter that your name is on it. When gifting though, you can choose “Ship To” and put the receivers name in the shipping info and this will put their name on the digital ticket.

Tickets

A confirmation email will be sent to you once your purchase transaction is successful.  The confirmation email is your ticket with your custom barcode.  You can either print, save to your phone or take a screenshot of your Digital Passport Barcode to be scanned at each participating winery when you visit.

What time does the trail start?

The trail starts when individual wineries are open (usually 10-11am) and ends at closing of the wineries (5-6pm).  Please check out individual winery hours on the list of participating wineries above.

Where does the trail start?

It starts wherever you would like.  Please use the MAP and filter for Christmas Wine Affair to plan out your trip.

What about transportation?

This is a self-guided trail so you will use your own transportation or book with a Tour Company.  Please use a Designate Driver.

Are wine glasses included with ticket or at each winery?

No glasses are included.  Each winery will have wine glasses for you to use while tasting but are not included to take home.  Wine glasses are for sale at each winery if you would like to purchase separately.
