Woodrose Winery

(map) As Texas wineries go, Woodrose believes it’s on the smaller side. That said, as you can see by the lineup of bottles, there are plenty of choices for a good tasting. Located just west of Stonewall on the 290 Wine Trail, they say they aim to expand wine production by 20% a year. To that I say, “cheers!”

For tasting, there are four different flights to choose from, depending on your preferences. We went with “Mike’s Choices,” named after the owner and winemaker. Who would know better, right? You get to taste six wines for $5, and at the end, they throw in a sample of their most famous wine, the Tempranillo. Turned out to be our fave.

The tasting room is fairly large, with a nice assortment of wine-related gifts, accessories and t-shirts. It’s surrounded by 3,000 square feet of tree-shaded outdoor decks, with plans to add more. If you like to taste wine with your best friend, the decks are dog-friendly. Also, there’s live music on the weekends.

Above, the exterior of the tasting room. There’s a large event center/dance hall nearby for weddings and parties, with plans to add a commercial kitchen for catering and wine dinners. They also plan to add a B&B. Just one more reason the Texas Wine Trails are catching up to Napa!
