We went to taste the wines based on the reviews and was not disappointed. The rose and the ports were especially good and we left with both ports, a rose and muscat in our trunk!

Friendly staff and the wine isn’t bad. Oldest winery in Texas. Something to do in Del Rio. I recommend this place for sure.

As our guide mentioned, this is the oldest winery in Texas. The building is typical of the 1800s, and many of the oak casks aging their port wines and others, appear old enough to be original. The wine tasting - $5 for five wines -...More

This is the oldest continually operating winery in Texas. Established by Italian immigrants to the area and still run by the Qualia Family.

This is a really friendly, cozy place. The wine is just ok, but it really doesn't matter. You feel welcomed and relaxed. We loved our visit!

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.
