With several SouthStar Communities located along the Texas Hill Country Wine Trail, idyllic vineyards and wineries are right in your backyard, with more only a short drive away. Texas is not only one of the oldest wine-growing states in the United States, but it is the fifth largest wine producing state in the country. Texas wine is most known for its own wine grape, the Blanc Du Bois, and the Texas Hill Country Wine Trail draws countless visitors every year. The wine trail features 32 wineries, vineyards and cellars that host weekend events including live music, art shows and classes on the art of wine tasting.
Plan a weekend or day trip to experience each winery’s own take on a taste of Texas. At Texas residential communities Vintage Oaks and Havenwood at Hunter’s Crossing in New Braunfels, wine lovers experience all the benefits of vineyard living, including the beauty for which the Hill Country is known and the relaxed, welcoming lifestyle it promotes. For tastings around the communities visit Dry Comal Creek Vineyards, Sister Creek Vineyards and Bending Branch Winery or plan your own wine trail day trip with the trail’s official list of suggested routes.
