Stop #5: Hye Meadow Winery. "We love wine. Not just drinking it, though that part is fun too. We love creating wine blends and different styles. And we really love sharing our wines with our friends and customers. We are excited that the Texas wine industry is starting to flourish, especially in beautiful central Texas. There are a lot of great wineries in our area. But once you taste our wines, we know we’ll become one of your favorite stops on the Hill Country Wine Trail – if not your very favorite. Located on gorgeous property under towering oak trees, Hye Meadow Winery will make you feel right at home. Both our covered patio and our tasting room are the perfect spots to kick back, relax and enjoy a glass of well-crafted wine. We are happy to show you around our state-of-the-art winery, and offer a peek at our events pavilion for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and other intimate gatherings. Our staff is friendly, approachable and knowledgeable about wine – Texas wine in particular. We also can't wait to introduce you to Friends in Hye Places, our free wine club. At Hye Meadow Winery, we take our wine seriously, but we also know how to have serious fun. Come on out to our little place in the Hill Country. It’s Hye time you did.."
Stop #7: Welcome to Garrison Brothers, home of the first and oldest legal whiskey distillery in Texas. Like everything in the Lone Star State, our dreams were big from the start. We didn't want to make just any bourbon – we wanted to make the best bourbon ever made. Anywhere. We're confident we succeeded and have no doubt you'll agree. Even the whiskey experts are beginning to take notice. In his 2014 Whisky Bible, Jim Murray -- one of the most respected tasters in the industry – named our Cowboy Bourbon “American Micro Whisky of the Year” and he gave it a 96 score!
Stop #4: Zero 815 Winery "We are blessed and lucky to be located in Texas, where so many great varietals are carefully nurtured and produced by skilled farmers.
