The Woodlands, TX is filled with fun activities. One activity you won’t want to miss out on is checking out some of the wine tastings in and around the town. There are plenty of places to try wine and discover new wine. We’ve put together a list of our top five wine tasting places near The Woodlands, TX:
Wild Stallion Vineyards
No list of wine tastings in The Woodlands, TX would be complete without mentioning Wild Stallion Vineyards. They host weddings, concert series, and just general wine tasting. Wine tasting hours are from 12 – 5pm most of the time (sometimes closed for special occasions). This doesn’t give you a huge window, so plan accordingly.
These vineyards are owned and operated by a family, and was opened in 2009. They have plenty of white wines to try, ranging from the semi-sweet Blanc Du Bois to the Dry Moscato, plus a handful of reds as well. Wine tastings include your choice of 5 wines to sample.
Some wineries go for a very chic, industrial feel with minimal aesthetic and minimal ambience. Others, like Gadela, create a warm and welcoming environment with activities like karoake! They’ve been making wine for nearly two decades.
Their wine tasting is great because they offer an extensive variety of wine. For reds, they have Merlot, Shiraz, Amarone, and many more. For whites, they have Riesling and Sauvignon blanc. They also have an ice wine for some chilled dessert.
The Gadela Winery tastings are $10, and include 8 different wines to try. No reservations required.
However, they are only open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, so be sure to check out their website for exact hours.
