Our Texas vacation ranch in Cat Spring sits on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, an area with more than two dozen wineries. Autumn is the quintessential season for wine tasting; the fall harvest and the fresh scent of the fall crush makes us crave a taste of that magical fluid aging in oak. We find ourselves drawn to visit any winery we pass, eager to replenish wine cellars slowly emptied during the past year.
Plan to visit several Texas wineries during a relaxing weekend or mid-week holiday at our vacation ranch Houston area. It’s fun to hit the wine trail with no specific destination in mind. You may stumble across Rosemary’s Vineyard and Winery, in nearby La Grange, where you’ll sip a variety of wines in a tasting room surrounded by acres of Muscadine grape vines. Or head in the opposite direction and stop by Colony Cellars, in Waller Texas; sit back and enjoy a selection of their Texas wines in the tasting room after a trolley tour of the vineyard.
If you are curious about the Texas wines we feature at our Cat Spring Restaurant, Carols, drive an hour north to Bryan Texas and visit Messina Hof Winery. Or head west to Fredericksburg for a tour of Becker Vineyards. Of course, the easiest way to taste these wines is at Carol’s, accompanied by tasty food and cheerful company. Serious oenophiles will want to attend monthly Wine Dinners at our Cat Spring restaurant.
