So now, how about a Road Trip?

Either take advantage of one of our event Road Trips scheduled throughout the year, or plan your own. The Way Out Wineries make a big loop in the middle of Texas, so you can jump in anywhere. Decide which wineries you’d like to visit, check out the winery pages for hours and days open, and plan your route. Our map will be a good resource and winery websites are great for guiding you. Spending the night? Many winery websites list nearby accommodations and the chambers of commerce often list lodgings. Just a day trip? Find a cluster of three or four wineries closer together and take your time visiting, tasting the wines and getting to know the great folks behind the bar. They will have some great suggestions for places to eat and other interesting places to stop. Each winery provides its own unique wine-tasting experience. Check the website or our winery page for tasting fees, special events and other offerings. Then get ready to make memories!
Our event Road Trips are always a blast.
It will take more than one day to get around to all the wineries but it can be done in a couple of days. Staying at a well located inn, bed & breakfast or motel will give you a chance to really relax and enjoy our wine country. You will purchase your ticket through this website. We’ll ask you to select a “starting winery” where you will be checked in and given your special wine tasting glasses. Be sure to print your ticket and present it when you first go in. The ticket and your wine glass will set you apart as a ticketholder for the event and your winery hosts will then provide you with your complimentary tasting and other event goodies.
Never been wine tasting?
Don’t let that stand in your way.
It’s a great time to start.
Most wineries will charge you a small fee for tasting a set number of wines. But many will waive the fee with a purchase of a bottle of two. Some do their tastings at the bar while others offer a seated tasting. The person pouring the wine may be the owner or winemaker or a knowledgeable employee who will help you decide on the wines, answer questions (there are no “stupid questions” in wineries) and generally guide you through the tasting. If you are truly new to wine tasting, say so, and you will be surprised how quickly you will learn the basics from these friendly folks. If you are past the basics and want to learn more, the server will likely be able to help. Allow plenty of time at each winery and plan on visiting three or four wineries in a day with breaks for lunch and some sightseeing along the way. We always suggest a designated driver! Have fun, be safe and make memories.


Upcoming Events:

2018 Summertime Cook-Off: June 22nd, 23rd, and 24th


It’s Cook- Off Time!!

The Cook-Off Classic is an exciting weekend this year!! June 22nd, 23rd, and 24th and the ticket price is $35.00. You get the customary logoed tasting glass, food pairing, and also a vote as to which of the ten wineries has the best entree. In this case, every winery will be cooking the same meat: sausage.

So you, as the culinary judge that you are, get to cast your ballot at the last winery you visit to decide who had the best dish. We have a couple of wineries going way out of the box and presenting their dish in very non typical ways so YOU get to be the Wine Chef Judge today and settle the argument.

Get your tickets today and help move the trophy along from its current home or maybe it stays just where it is at Red Wing Dove!



2018 Holiday Road Trip:

November 9th-11th AND November 16th-18th


Returning to original format for this year’s Holiday Road Trip!!! Are y’all ready for this?!?!?!

Mark your calendars as we return to two weekends to get out and Road Trip!! You will be able to visit all 10 wineries during the special Holiday Trail times during the first weekend and the wineries normal business hours during the second weekend. So here’s the scoop…

What’s the same?? At your first winery you will receive a large, quality wine glass (not just the small festival size) with the Way Out Wineries logo that you will bring with you on the rest of the trail.


Now for the NEW!! At each winery you will receive 5 1 oz tastings. At each winery you will receive an ornament with that winery’s name on it. At each winery you will receive a 10% discount on purchases of three bottles or more. Please note there WILL be food pairings during the first weekend ONLY this trail. While some wineries might offer bites to accompany their flight or have meat and cheese trays for purchase during the second weekend.

ALL of this wonderfulness for $XX per person!! Two whole weekends of tasting opportunities at 11 Way Out Wineries, a quality WOW logo wine glass, an ornament from each winery, and 10% discount on three or more bottle purchases. Remember, there will be food pairings during the first weekend of the Holiday Road Trip only.

At your first stop, you will pick up your wine glass and the first ornament and enjoy five 1 ounce wine tastings. Then at your convenience, on your schedule for two weekends visit the remaining wineries tasting four wines at each, and picking up ornaments at each stop along the way. Cheers to you and yours as you travel the Way Out Wineries Holiday Road Trip.
