Driftwood Estate Winery sits in the Heart of the Texas Hill Country on a bluff overlooking the vineyards below. Come enjoy a bottle of our Texas wine! The Driftwood Estate Winery staff invites you to take a scenic Hill Country drive to the winery and try our award winning wines. The view from the bluff is spectacular, and the grounds are perfect for a picnic with your favorite glass or bottle of Driftwood Estate wine. We are open every day from 11am till 7pm for tastings and wine sales. We are closed for Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Years Day. We may close early for a Wine Club Party or private event. Always check our website or Facebook page to see if we have extended hours. Taste any 6 wines listed on our tasting sheet for $10. The tasting fee includes a Driftwood logo souvenir wine glass. Gold and Silver Spur Wine Club Members now receive 4 complimentary wine tastings per membership every visit during regular business hours. Complimentary tastings do not include a wine glass. Active duty military receive a free tasting and 10% discount on all wine purchases. We thank you for your service. For groups of 10 or more, please contact us ahead of time to see if an advanced booking is needed. For information about private group tasting visit our website. A complete list and description of our wines can be found on the wine store page. For a list of stores that carry our wines as well as restaurants that serve them, visit the retail outlets page. In addition to our wines, we are also tasting and selling several premium wines from our sister winery in Paso Robles and one wine from Brady Vineyards. Come by for lunch and enjoy the view from our 1,100 square foot deck overhanging the bluff, our picnic area under the oak trees or our pavilion next to the tasting room. They all have a beautiful view of the hill country and vineyard below. Our outdoor facilities are for the use of winery customers only and no alcoholic beverages can be brought onto the winery premises. Bring your own lunch. Pet friendly! The DEW Crew is looking forward to your visit! Cheers!

Loved this winery. Great wine, informed staff. Pizza food truck...delicious. Beautiful views and patio. Very steep drive though. And watch for law enforcement if drinking and driving. They are present.

Nice view but agree with other ratings. Wine isn't good. Tasted like vinegar. Stingy pours and a steep price!! Disappointed with my visit .... maybe next time I'll go for a cheese platter or cake or something instead of wine tasting.

The wines were good. There were only a few that we liked. Service was good. The biggest wow factor was definitely the landscape. Very nice views.

They have a wonderful view outside, perfect for picture taking. The Sangiovese wine was very good. They had a pizza food truck outside and we ordered two to share with our friends. Really yummy.

I've been to this winery more times than I can count... the cost of a tasting is very reasonable and you get to keep your glass... their wine is very mature compared to some other wines in the area and they have a wonderful selection...More
