This is a great place to stop for Texas wine lovers, wine lovers in general, or people just passing through Del Rio. This is the oldest winery in Texas, and they remain in their same building more than a century old. Read the historical marker outside, then head inside and do a tasting. You'll taste good wine and also get... More

We mostly prefer sweet wines and bought the Muscat but also liked several others. The Merlot was very good. The pricier of the two Ports was really good.

The wine isn't all that great but the history is fun. This winery lived through prohibition by making sacramental wine. The site is beautiful and ancient. The winery is actually hard to find since it is located well off the beaten track in the original part of Del Rio which is most interesting to drive through. Many old mansions and... More

They were all really good, some delicious in fact! The staff were very friendly and knowledge during the tasting. The bottles are not a bad price either, we... More
