From Burton we headed over to Round Top. It was bustling with activity for the 4th of July weekend. We stopped by Royer's Pie Haven for a slice of apple pie, a must when stopping in Round Top. We did the typical Round Top thing of walking the shops and check out some cool Texas art while trying to avoid the heat.

We then headed towards La Grange for our last stop of the day, Rohan Meadery. Maria and I met Ashley from Rohan at The Discover Wine Festival. After learning more about Rohan, we decided that we needed to visit soon. Rohan Meadery makes more than just mead, they make several wines including an estate Blanc Du Bois, ciders, and they're even experimenting with a hard root beer. They do 5 tastings for $5, a great deal. The meads run from the dryer side to semi-sweet with a good number of varieties, really something for everyone. We left with a bottle of Peachy Keen, their summer seasonal mead made with local peaches. Look for a more complete write-up of our visit soon.
