Take a Trip On the Highland Lakes Wine Trail

Tour a selection of wineries in the Hill Country, a wine lover’s dream destination

Texan wineries have worked tirelessly for the past 18 years to make Texas the third-biggest wine tourism destination in the nation.

October is Texas Wine Month, or #TexasWineMonth for the social media crowd.

Nearly 50 members participate statewide, and in the Highland Lakes, you can visit 20 wineries on the Texas Wine Month Trail.

With the right planning you could visit up to four wineries in one day. Just make sure you have a designated driver selected before your first stop.

Wine tours are another way to enjoy a day of wine tasting while letting someone else drive. Heart of Texas Wine Tours take groups on tours to wineries based on your tastes.

To drive your own Highland Lakes wine tour, you could start at the northernmost part of the map near Lampasas and work your way down to Burnet and Tow. You could start in Marble Falls and explore toward Spicewood then Johnson City. To the south, there are a number of wineries in Stonewall and Hye.
