Guests will depart the hotel on a private shuttle to enjoy this wine tasting tour in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.  The first stop will be at Driftwood Estate Winery.  Driftwood radiates Texas pride in its production of high-quality wines made from 100% Texas grapes. Driftwood Estate Winery sits on a bluff overlooking their Estate Vineyard and the Hill Country from which visitors can enjoy award-winning wines. Next the tour will move to Fall Creek Winery. Guided wine tasting, with lunches ordered from Turcotte Delicatessen for the group to eat during their tasting. Hill Country feel and plenty of photo opportunities!

We will depart the hotel and head for Treaty Oak Distilling Co., the 4th oldest distillery in Texas, and until 1996, it was the first 1st legal distillery. Treaty Oak Distilling Co. specializes in their Bourbon and Gin, but truly has something for all- seasonal craft cocktails, craft beer; Texas wine, as well as some of the best BBQ in the Texas Hill Country.  Then we will head to Vista Brewing. This stop is typically a favorite! Their beer is brewed by a passionate, award-winning brewmaster that creates incredible beer. Unique to Vista Brewing is their Collaboration Series, highlighting local Texas artisans and non-profits and together developing a recipe and brewing together. Their beers are influenced by European traditions- balanced and approachable.
