This has to be one of the classic winery destination stops of the Texas Hill Country. Established in 1992 by Richard and Bunny Becker when there was nothing out there, they have now helped establish Fredericksburg and the Texas Hill Country as a top destination for wine lovers in the state. With both estate vines and access to vineyards from the Texas High Plains and throughout most of Texas, the Beckers’ have grape resources to make just about any quality Texas wine you can imagine. Any time of the year is a great time to visit as the winery has many events and live music occasions on a regular basis. Most wines made here are Bordeaux, Burgundian and Rhone style. The list of wines is quite extensive and to pick out a few to grab your attention would do injustice to the others. One thing is for sure, the older the reds you have from Becker wines the better they will be! Plus, the reds are good for your heart, just ask the doctor. The estate grounds have a log cabin built around 1890s. The reception hall adjacent to the winery is a great place for events. The outside grounds and surrounding Hill Country landscape makes a good backdrop for weddings. And there is more than just wine! Check out the lavender fields! During their annual Lavender Festival, you can enjoy picking your own lavender then enjoy some great tasting Becker wine. The winery also makes a great place for your first “wine date”. What’s there not to like about this place? You just can’t go wrong here! Check out their website to see what the latest events are and plan your next trip accordingly.
