Texas Wine Month Passport Event
October is our favorite month here at Texas Hill Country Wineries because it is Texas Wine Month! Join us in celebrating with the Texas Wine Month Passport event from October 1 – 31 in the picturesque Texas Hill Country, receiving complimentary tastings, exclusive discounts and discovering award winning wines at 45+ unique Hill Country Wineries. Savor all that Texas Wine Country has to offer this October and drink it all in for one day or all 31 on this fantastic self-guided tour!!
All of these benefits for a ticket price of $120/couple or $85/individual. During a regular tasting room visit, the average tasting fee is $15/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 5 wineries. Each order will include a custom barcode that serves as your Digital Texas Wine Month 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 experience up to four (4) wineries, with a limit of visiting each winery once during the event. You have 31 days to enjoy multiple wineries in the beautiful Texas Wine Country. This is too good of a deal to pass up!
Texas Wine Month Passport Ticket Includes:
- Your Texas Wine Month Passport ticket works like a coupon book and offers hundreds in savings at award winning Texas Hill Country Wineries with a digital barcode ticket to be scanned at each winery (maximum of 4 per day).
- A complimentary tasting at each participating winery.
- 15% discount on 3+ bottle purchases of wine at each of the participating wineries. You may redeem your discount at each participating winery once during the event.
- Your Texas Wine Month Passport ticket gives back! In support of Texas wine, $5 of each ticket sold goes directly to the Texas Hill Country Wine Industry Scholarship Fund. Over the years $55,500 has been awarded to 47 Texas students working towards a degree in Viticulture, Enology and Hospitality.

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 31 days of the Trail. October 1st – 31st, 2022.
What wineries are included?
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 ticket. (No, tickets are not shipped)
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 at the participating wineries. You can find a list the participating wineries on the Texas Wine Month Passport ticket page, or you can find a list of them on our MAP page using the Texas Wine Month Passport map tag.
Where does the trail start?
It starts wherever you would like. Please use the MAP and filter for Texas Wine Month 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 Designated 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.
