Wine Tasting Along Wine Road 290 – Fredericksburg

Ten wineries located along and just off of U. S. Highway 290 between Fredericksburg and Johnson City have recently joined together to promote Wine Road 290 – Fredericksburg.

The participating wineries include Becker Vineyards, Chisholm Trail Winery, Fredericksburg Winery, Grape Creek Vineyards, Pedernales Cellars, Rancho Ponte Vineyard, Texas Hills Vineyard, Torre di Pietra Vineyards, William Chris Vineyards, and Woodrose Winery.

The wineries have developed a web site and printed a rack card with a listing of the wineries and a map to guide wine enthusiasts to their locations.

“For visitors to Fredericksburg and the Texas Hill Country, these ten wineries are located in a very easy to navigate area using Highway 290 as the artery that binds them together.  From Texas Hills Vineyard just to the east of Johnson City, to Chisholm Trail Winery just to the west of Fredericksburg is about a 50-minute drive, with the other wineries in between,” noted Ernie Loeffler, director, Fredericksburg Convention and Visitor Bureau.

“We believe our visitors are going to be delighted with the concept of Wine Road 290,” Loeffler concluded.

As a group, the wineries will also hold periodic special events throughout the year, including Kiolbassa and Kab and Mardi Gras Texas, to name just two.
