TX Bluebonnet Wine Trail
January 06, 2020
For fun I looked up different types of trails in Texas and found a wonderful article about the top 10 hiking trails in our beloved Lone Star State (note to self… keep this as a reference for future use). I don’t know why I was so surprised, but Texas has some beautiful landscapes. The number one ranked trail (according to Wide Open Country) is the South Rim Trail at Big Bend National Park. Have you been there? Side note, just today I talked to someone who went to Big Bend who said he was about 20 feet from a bear… a big black bear! I saw the picture.. It’s true! What about a different type of trail, one that doesn’t include bears or sweating or hiking? What if I told you there is a trail designated for my fellow vino drinking friends. Are you ready for this? It’s called the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail. Doesn’t that sound lovely?
At specific times throughout the year, you can visit various member wineries that make up the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail and experience wine tastings, grape crushing and stomp, mystery dinners, concerts, wine paired dinners, vineyard tours and more. As vacation preparations for 2020 commence, why not mark your calendars and plan to attend one of the FIVE seasonal wine trail events that takes place each year such as the Wine and Chocolate Tour (whoever said diamonds are a girl's best friend underestimated chocolate and wine), Spring Blue Bonnet Wine and Cheese Tour, Harvest Trail, October Wine and Sausage Trail and the Holiday Trail. After buying your tickets, you get to choose which winery you want to start at. Tours take place over four days on the first two weekends of the participating month.
