Wineries of the Texas Hill Country Plus One Fine Brewery
by John F. Aceti

Many people who visit wineries in the Texas Hill Country know and enjoy the social aspect of drinking a glass of exquisite wine along with some delicious food. Friends, spouses and even family members consider wineries as a sophisticated place to interact and socialize in a comfortable setting. Many of the owners have designed their tasting areas as places of enjoyment and cheerfulness. While drinking quality wines one can also view pieces of art on the walls, a great variety of wine related gifts, clothing and books. Many tour vehicles for “special groups” can be seen in parking areas at all the wineries. On some days one needs to drive around awhile to find an open space. For those who have not visited a winery, I can assure you that it is a unique experience and you will probably make some repeated visits. People who drink wine and travel in the United States or abroad tend to visit wineries wherever they travel. You may even walk out with a bottle or two of your favorite wine!!

"I love the personal testimonies and guest photos, it really gives a personal connection to Wineries of the Texas Hill Country.  The imagery captures the wineries and guests wonderfully and makes you want to visit right away." January Wiese, Executive Director Texas Hill Country Wineries, Dripping Springs, Texas "I found this book to be a wonderfully descriptive and informative guide to the many wineries located in Texas Hill country. No one contemplating a visit should leave home without a copy. Who knew Texas had such an abundant wine culture? I sure didn’t. I’m planning a visit already." Carl R. Vahl studied Italian cuisine and wine at ALMA, the International School of Italian Cuisine in Parma, Emilia Romagna, Italy and served as Executive Chef at one of Baltimore’s finest Italian Restaurants.
