About Hill Country Wineries
The unique wineries of the Texas Wine Trail are located all throughout the Hill Country, representing some of the finest and most award-winning wines not just in Texas or even the United States, but around the world. Huffington Post named the Wine Trail the “new Napa,” calling the region “the wine community's best-kept secret and recognizing it amongst distinguished company.
“With hours upon hours of sun and great soil, Texas Hill County has perfect growing conditions for varietals better known in central Italy and France's Rhone Valley,” they said. “Today, Texas Hill Country is the second most visited wine tasting region in North American and top 10 in the world. Yet the region is just a fraction of Napa Valley with fewer than 50 vineyards and less than 300 in the entire state of Texas.”
Wine Enthusiast also named the Texas Hill Country “one of the 10 Best Travel Destinations.” Texas is the No. 5 largest wine-producing state in the country. For more information about Hill Country wineries or to buy tickets for Texas Wine Month, visit the Texas Wine Trail.
