Postponed: The Wine Journey 

New Dates: July 31 – August 16, 2020

Texas Hill Country Wineries and our members are committed to sharing Texas wines and providing excellent guest experiences.  Unfortunately due to the global spread of COVID-19 the regular operations of a number of wineries are changing daily which will affect the overall experience of the Wine & Wildflower Journey.  In accordance with CDC, Federal and Local rules and recommendations, THCW has decided to postpone the Wine & Wildflower Journey until July 31-August 16.  While we understand the Wildflowers will not be in bloom during that time, it is a great opportunity to experience Harvest in the Hill Country which offers many unique sights and tastes for guests. 

All tickets already purchased for the event will be honored for the new dates.  If you are a current ticket holder, there is no action needed on your part for this change.  If you CAN NOT attend the new event dates please contact us at lindsey@texaswinetrail.com by no later than April 1, 2020 to receive a full refund. Any refund requests sent after this date will not be honored. We thank you in advance for your understanding snd support. 

In the meantime, we ask you to support the wineries and businesses affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.  Each winery is responding to concerns and have individual policies in place to keep their staff and guests safe.  We recommend you check winery websites and social pages directly for updates on their daily schedules, event activities and protocols. If you are looking to support local businesses while staying home, many Texas Hill Country Wineries offer online ordering and shipping in and outside of Texas. 

Our industry recognizes that the health and safety of all visitors is the top priority and encourage you to follow all CDC protocols in order to ensure the health and safety for yourself and our local businesses.  We understand the impact this is having across the nation and we are committed to working with and supporting our community while wishing everyone the best health.

Visit the WINERIES page of our website for details on each participating winery including hours, location and varietals.

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

Your Wine Journey ticket, valid July 31 – August 16, includes a full complimentary tasting (as determined by winery) at all 52 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 52 participating wineries is $16/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. You have 17 days to visit 52 wineries. Your Wine Journey 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 order will include a custom barcode that serves as your Digital Wine Journey 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 52 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!

Your Wine Journey Ticket Includes:

  • Full complimentary tasting at each participating winery with a limit of 4 wineries a day (one tasting for singles, two tastings for couples – couples are ANY two people but both must be present together for tastings)
  • A custom barcode that will serve as your Digital Tasting ‘Passport’ that will be scanned at each participating winery that you visit.
  • 15% discount on 3-bottle purchases from each participating winery (winery choice and/or discount may exclude reserves, ports and wines already discounted)

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 Wine and Wildflower Journey ticket page, or you can find a list of them on our MAP page using the Wine and Wildflower Journey 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 Wine and Wildflower Journey 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.
