Wine aficionados should check out the Washington County Wine Trail of Central Texas. Three wineries near Brenham Texas Bed and Breakfasts offer tours and wine tasting. All are beautifully situated, with magnificent views that are reason enough to visit them.
Saddlehorn Winery is located on 360-acre ranch in Burton, Texas. Wines are poured in a renovated horse barn overlooking the working winery. Their wines range from semi-sweet Muscats (perfect on a hot Texas afternoon) to big Cabernet Sauvignons.
Windy Winery is situated on top of a hill outside Brenham. Wines crafted at Windy Hill are made from grapes grown only in Texas.
Pleasant Hill Winery offers tours that follow the grape from the vine to the glass. Located in Brenham, the winery offers commanding views of the surrounding Central Texas countryside.
The 2011 Lavender & Wine Fest is a good time for a Brenham Texas Bed and Breakfast getaway. Stand among fragrant fields of lavender at Chappell Hill Lavender Farm, then head to Windy Winery for a grape stomp, live music, and wine tasting. The Lavender & Wine Fest is August 13, 2011.
There are ten wineries along the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail. Take your time and visit them all.
