Texas Hills Vineyard is located in the gentle hills of the picturesque Pedernales River Valley in the Texas Hill Country near Johnson City. A perfect location for growing quality grapes, the intense Texas sun by day and the cooler hill country nights gives our grapes an intense and quality flavor, ideal for wines. Texas grown grapes for Texas Wines. We focus on organic growing and new world style process of making wine. Our tasting room is made from rammed pressed earth nestled into the hillside overlooking our gorgeous 19 year old, 25 acre vineyard. Come out, enjoy the wine and the view with our friendly tasting room staff.

Friendly service. $8 for 5 small tastes. Refunded if purchase bottle. We only tasted reds. Not the best reds, but what we expected in Texas.

A very nice winery, they had live music playing today, and of course the tasting room. The passport got the two of us six samples of their wines and a 15% discount on 3 bottle purchases at the winery. Some interesting wines, we particularly enjoyed the Volare. We were off to sample other wineries but the outdoor area with the... More

My wife an I did the wine tasting seating a coupe of years back and have been coming back ever since. They keep telling us to ask our local Speck's to stock their product, but then we wouldn't have an excuse... More

We come to this winery every time we come to this area. Mainly because we LOVE the owners, Gary and Kathy Gilstrap. They are the most friendly people, they make you feel right at home, take time with you and tell you about the art and heart of what they do. They are one of the originals in this region... More

We had a great tour and spent hours on the patio sipping wines and enjoying the snacks. Enjoying everything from Texas made this place unique. Don't miss the Chenin Blanc. It is amazing!

Had a very nice visit here. We were the only ones there and got to take our time sampling wine and talking to the hostess. She knew everything about the local wines and gave us recommendations on which of the other vineyards to visit. Nice place to visit and we bought a couple of bottles.
