You Could Soon Be Drinking Texas Wine—For Free

We have a giveaway with free tastings, private winery tours, and more. Enter for a chance to wine—I mean, win—now through October 30.

You’ve read about D dining critic Eve Hill-Agnus’ recent excursion through the Texas Hill Country during peak grape harvest. (And if you haven’t, it’s a must-read for wine novices and connoisseurs alike.) In it, she traces the relatively young wine region’s growth from a place where blended varietals were common to an exciting scene in which winemakers are exploring new methods and uplifting their unique terroirs.

This revolutionary wine moment is what sparked our new wine guide: The 15 Texas Hill Country Wineries You Must Visit Now. Consider it your own personal winery bucket list—or spit bucket list, if you will. You’ll find a tour of Texas Hill Country wineries that is a mix of old and new: the old guard that began planting varietals suited to the unforgiving Texas climate, those that dialed into a sense of place, and a newer crop that is pushing the wine scene forward.

For further guidance, and really just for fun, we made a wine quiz: Which kind of Texas Hill Country wine are you? Think of it as an astrology of grapes. If any of this talk of wine tantalizes your tastebuds, then we have one last treat for y’all. We’re running a giveaway now through October 30.

Enter for a chance to win comped wine tastings, an entire case of wine, private tours, and more. You can enter each giveaway once a day, every day until October 30. All winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 4 via email. Good luck and cheers!
