One of our favorite times of the year is quickly approaching; the month of October is deemed Texas Wine Month here in the Texas Hill Country. Don’t forget that tickets go on sale August 12th! Tickets can be purchased on the Texas Hill Country Wineries website. Ticket holders will get an opportunity to enjoy a full tasting (with a limit of 4 per day) and also a 15% discount on three-bottle purchases at each winery! Ticket prices are $60/couple and $35/individual.
A great way to spot the value of a ticket is knowing that the average tasting at each winery is around $9, therefore, if you visit four in one day – you’ve already saved money over the individual ticket price – and you can return all through the month of October!
October is a beautiful month in Texas, especially here at BlissWood Bed & Breakfast Ranch. The animals are out and the fishing is great. A morning horseback ride would be a perfect way to start your great day. October in Texas boasts perfect weather during the day and cooler nights, which allows for an especially enjoyable time on our grounds. With over 500 beautiful acres to share and explore, our Texas guest ranch is a relaxing place for you to take a break from your winery tours.
The area is home to more than 45 wineries spread from Austin to Fredericksburg and Lampasas to New Braunfels. BlissWood Bed & Breakfast Ranch is conveniently located closest to the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail, which includes seven wineries. Each of them provides unique experiences and a variety of events throughout the year. The Texas Wine Month in October is always one that sells out the fastest, with tickets usually no longer available after the first week of October. Remember, the early bird gets the “wine”!
The seven wineries of the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail are:
- Pleasant Hill Winery (located in Brenham)
- Saddlehorn Winery (located in Burton)
- Windy Winery (located in Brenham)
- Bernhardt Winery (located in Plantersville)
- Cork This! Winery (located in Montgomery)
- Messina Hof Winery (located in Bryan)
- Peach Creek Vineyards (located in College Station)
If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a couple’s weekend or even a group, we’ve got room in our nine small and larger furnished guest houses at the ranch. We also have a charming restaurant in Cat Spring is just minutes from BlissWood, Carol’s at Cat Spring, which offers wonderfully home-cooked meals to fuel you for another fun day of wine tasting.
BlissWood is more than just a Texas bed and breakfast; it’s truly an experience for you, your friends and your family. See you in October!
