What a wonderful experience we had once we figured out how to get there. Car GPS was useless. We both took the complete wine tasting and was I ever glad we did. This is Texas's oldest winery and it's easy to see why it has won so many awards. I do not like Port but their Tawny Port is unbelievable! My favorites were the Tempranillo,the Tres Vinos which is a blend of Merlot,Zinfandel, and Petit Serah, and of course the award winning Tawny Port. Don't miss this place. Shady Palms and nice backyard in the oldest neighborhood in town. Lots of history. We loved it. The tasting is free if you buy a case which we did. The wine is very reasonably priced unlike some of the snobbish places in the Hill Country near Austin.

I arrived just as they opened the doors. Very friendly staff, also very knowledgeable about their wine. They have an assortment of wine related items for sale. You can wine taste a variety of types of wine. There is a public restroom outside. Parking can be a bit tricky keep your large trucks and SUVs at home. Overall great experience a decent stop while in Del Rio.

We stopped in on a whim and tasted a couple wine samples. We bought a bottle of Tempranillo after looking around at the vineyard and olive trees and checking out the vats. It's a charming little place and the employees were friendly and helpful.

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon thirty minutes prior to closing. The attendant, Laura, was gracious and helpful showing us the location and the history of the winery. We ended up buying a case of the wine in all permutations for home. For a small place it certainly was a treasure. It takes about 30 minutes to visit it but worth every minute.

The young lady who pours the wine was not very friendly or generous with the product. I got about an inch full of red wine and it was not very good. I would have bought a bottle if I could have tasted more and found one that I liked. The vineyard is pretty. Not very many things to look at or buy inside. However, try it and enjoy the outside area, which is lovely.
