Texas Hill Country Wine

True to Texan tradition, this AVA is the second largest certified Viticultural Area in America. With well over 9 million acres in the heart of Texas, it is no wonder that other more specific AVA’s, such as Bell Mountain and Fredericksburg, have been identified as unique microclimates within this blanket AVA. The wines of this massive region, north of San Antonio and west of Austin, range from Bordeaux blends to Italian varietals, as well as cool climate grapes such as Riesling. This is a quality wine producing region and the wines have won numerous awards both at home and internationally. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

  • Fall Creek Vineyards Chardonnay Texas Hill Country NV

    Snoothrank:

    Spent a few days in the Hill Country tasting wines from my home state. Most were still not very good, but this sub-$10 Chardonnay was a pleasant surprise. A tasty, straight forward Chardonnay with apples and citrus fruit, delightfully un-oaked. Went well with shrimp and crab gumbo. Read More

  • The Hill Country of Texas actually gets a lot of rain, and is gorgeous.  I visited a friend in Austin and was surprised to find everything green.  We ventured out to Fredricksburg, TX, through green, rolling hills in October.  This was back in 2003, and Fredricksburg did have some tasting rooms then.  I only remember tasting Syrah... no whites. ...
