Private Wine Tasting Tours in Austin
Private Wine Tasting Tour in Austin
Are you visiting Austin with a group of friends and need something to do? Yes, you could visit one of our world-famous festivals and watch the bats as they leave their nests under the Congress Avenue Bridge. Yes, you can visit one of our famous restaurants or go on a tour of our state’s capital building. While we are sure you will enjoy all that our city has to offer, have you considered extending your journey to a little outside of Austin? Outside the Austin city limits are some of the best wineries in the country.
Wine in Texas? Yes! Who needs Napa Valley? The Texas sunshine combined with amazing grapes makes some of the best wine you will ever taste in your life. Celebrate Texas wine by going on a tour of our Hill Country wineries. Here at Tour Austin you can book a private tour where you will get to experience several wineries.
Are you new to winery tours? Here are five tips to ensure that you and your traveling companions will have a fun and relaxing day.
Start your day by touring your favorite Texas winery. Our wineries have produced so many award-winning wines that it would be a surprise if a wine wasn’t your favorite. You will be able to enjoy your favorite wines, even more, when your palette is fresh. Be sure to poll your guests before planning your tours. Ask what type of wines they prefer. You would hate to spend most of the day at wineries that specialize in red wine when most of your group prefers white wine.
Bring a member of the winery with you on your tour. Being a member will enable you to gain access to member-only tastings. Are you not yet a member of one of our wineries? It is easy to sign up!
Don’t forget the food! Either pack a picnic lunch to eat at one of the locations or schedule a stop at one of the area’s fabulous restaurants. Don’t forget to rehydrate periodically too.
Last but not least, finish your day with a tasting room that has a variety of options. Don’t be surprised if some in your party choose to opt out of the final tasting. That’s it! That’s all you have to worry about! There’s no need to stress about traffic or parking. Your driver will keep you running on time, and you won’t have to worry about which of your friends will be the designated driver for the event. Our Mercedes’ Sprinter Van can transport up to 10 passengers, and this isn’t your mother’s minivan. The side doors are large for easy entry and exit. There’s tons of head and legroom. You’ll feel like your riding in the lap of luxury as you sink into the plush, leather bucket seats. Enjoy your favorite music as you comfortably ride to each location. And of course, you can avoid the Texas heat because our vans are perfectly climate controlled.
Perhaps you already have completed your research, and you know which of the dozens of wineries you would like to visit. Give us a list, and we will make your plan into a reality.
Maybe you are new to Austin and our wine scene, and you would like us to plan your destinations. After asking you a few questions, we will determine which of our Texas wine trails would be right for you. We may recommend that you visit the Dripping Wine Trail. Dripping Springs is a small town located just 35 minutes from downtown Austin. They are lucky enough to have three award-winning vineyards in their vicinity. The Dripping Wine Trail would be perfect for a group with a free afternoon.
The Driftwood Wine Trail is located about 30 minutes from downtown Austin. Visit their six wineries, including Salt Lick Cellars and the Driftwood Estate Winery. Wine Road 290 is a trail that takes you a little farther from Austin than the other tours, but you will not be disappointed as you visit the wineries around Johnson City, Stonewall, and Fredericksburg. Wineries include Becker Vineyards, Chisholm Trail Winery, and Last Draw Cellars.
You may want to enjoy some of our beautiful Texas landscape as you check out some of the award-winning wineries around Marble Falls. Visit the Perissos Vineyards and Winery on this day-trip from Austin.
Our private tours are a minimum of 3 hours long. But, no worries, if you feel like you need more wine time, we will give you just that. We offer additional time at $99 an hour.
