The Vintage Cellar
The Vintage Cellar is a tasting room east of Fredericksburg
on Highway 290 featuring wines from 3 Texas wineries; Bending Branch Winery,
Perissos Winery, and Val Verde Winery. The Vintage Cellar is located in what was originally a school house many
years ago, giving them a setting with a historic feel. It’s great seeing these historic buildings re-purposed
so they can live on in a new way. We enjoyed the
wines we tried from all three of these wineries, and our visits to The Vintage Cellar inspired us to make the trips to visit Perissos Winery and Bending Branch Winery. Val Verde is the oldest winery in Texas, so be sure to ask about their history when you visit The Vintage Cellar. We really enjoy Val Verde's Tempranillo, so we've had to pick up a bottle on our past few visits. As a bonus, they're located next to Armadillo's Leap Winery, making it easy to visit both back-to-back.
