Enchanting historic German colonial village tour

Visit the enchanting taste bud thrilling wine tour "Tuscany of Texas"! The tour starts in San Antonio, TX. We will drive about an hour to the famous Texas Hill country where we stop at two world class wineries, wine tasting fees are not included. Next we visit historic Fredericksburg, a quaint German village founded in 1846. You will be enchanted by its German colonial architecture and wildly popular German food. Shop till you drop in one of the many quaint shops along Main St. - the antiques shopping is excellent. Food at the restaurant is not included in the price of the tour. Special discounts are available if your group is larger than six passengers.


We meet at your hotel lobby and drive to nearby Fredericksburg, TX approximately one hour from San Antonio. We arrive to the first winery and you will spend an hour and a half to two hours tasting wine. We will get back in the van and travel to the next winery closeby. We will spend another two hours tasting wine and depart to the town of Fredericksburg where we will have lunch. We will take a walking tour of the small town Fredericksburg where you can take in the sites and shop. One hour later we will depart for San Antonio. In case of rain, most the town has covered walkways between shops, but this will reduce the amount of time wandering around town shopping and can be made up by visiting one of the Peach farms where they sell peaches, plums, blackberries, tomatoes, other fruits and vegetables, jellies, preserves, ice cream, cobbler, and much more.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful day with John on his Tuscany of Texas tour! He is well informed and a great communicator. We enjoyed our travel time as we headed for the Texas Hill Country. John was more than happy to grant our request to stop at Luckenbach Texas, population 3, of the famous country song. We stopped at 3 wineries specially selected by John for us to visit and had an authentic German lunch in Fredricksburg. John even accommodated my need for a coffee and chocolate before heading home.
