Here are 4 wineries in Fredericksburg you will want to visit:

1. Safari Winery

Good wines are made with experience, which is exactly what you will find at Safari Winery. It is a local, family-owned shop that has been in the area since the mid-1800s. For those keeping track of time, that’s nearly 200 years! Now down to the 6th generation, John and Taylor are carrying on the family tradition of great wines and exceptional customer service. They have a ton of wonderful wines to choose from, including a Chardonnay from the Curico Valley in Chile! For advanced wine drinkers, be sure to check out the Safari Wine Club which offers discounts on wine and invitations to exclusive events.

Did you know that Fredericksburg is the second-largest wine tourism destination in the country? In addition, Messina Hof Hill Country Winery is one of the most highly-rated wineries in the region, so you can see why it’s worth a visit. They have over 50 wines to choose from, ranging from tart whites to the more sweet-tasting reds. While they are constantly adding new products to their inventory, some of the most famous wines date back to when they first opened in 1977. After all, why mess with perfection? After visiting the winery, check out the vineyard where the Lenoir grapes are harvested.

3. Fredericksburg Winery

The Fredericksburg Winery has been operated by the Switzer family since it opened its doors in 1996. One fun fact about the winery is that 100% of all the wines sold in the store are made in-house with Texas grown grapes. The wines are also naturally sweetened with the natural sugars that are found in the grapes. If you want to taste the best-selling products, the winery has tastings throughout the day and evening. In addition to homemade wine, you can buy different kinds of jams, jellies, chocolates, and other products that are made with the wine.
