Wedding Oak Winery at Wildseed Farms

Fredericksburg, TX

Visit: September 2016

Wedding Oak Winery was founded in 2010 in San Saba, TX and is named for a 400 year old Oak tree located just a few miles from the winery.  We first had the opportunity to try Wedding Oak's wines at the Dripping with Taste event in Dripping Springs a few years ago.  We really enjoyed their wines, so we were glad to see Wedding Oak open a tasting room at Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg.  We frequently make a stop at Wildseed Farms when we visit Fredericksburg, like many other visitors to the area.  We like the trend of Texas wineries bringing the wine to the people by partnering with or opening a tasting room that's more on the beaten path.  This makes the wines more accessible and inspires those interested in Texas wine to make the trip to wineries we may not have visited otherwise.

Wedding Oak Winery at Wildseed Farms offers offer 4 different tasting flight options for $12 each; all reds, all whites, a red and white mixed flight, and a flight of wines from their Nuptial series of wines.  We tried the red wine flight, and we had a split decision picking favorites.  I gravitated towards The Tioja Hill Country, a Tempranillo blend.  Maria favored the Terre Rouge High Valley, a Rhone-style blend.  The Hill Country Sangiovese was in the mix of favorites as well.  Most bottles were priced in the twenties, a good value for the quality of these wines.  Now all we need to do is make the trip to San Saba.
