The Wine Industry Continues to Expand in Texas Hill Country

A New Wine Route

Expansion is not limited to US-290. In just the last year the road from Fredericksburg to Kerrville (SH-16) has seen the start of what I expect to be a huge transformation. For years it had only [one] winery. Now it has three, the other two being maybe the best financed wineries in the state.

One is Augusta Vin, the Napa-level creation of Austin house builder Scott Felder. He has planted 60 acres to create a one third mile driveway up to the cathedralesque tasting room that he designed. Similar attention was paid in the cellar and whoever makes wine there will have no excuses about the equipment.
