A Charming Weekend Drive Featuring Local Wine Tasting and Texas BBQ
As much as we love the city, with its bright lights, bustling streets, and live music humming in the distance, sometimes it’s nice to slow down and take to the hills. The Texas Hill Country that is. Let us take you on a relaxing Sunday drive through our state’s most scenic area.
Learn about Texas wine at the beautiful Tuscan villa of the Duchman Family Winery. Our favorite location for both the wine and the views, it is always a pleasure to hear from their knowledgeable staff about the future of winemaking in the Lone Star State.
Come hungry because you can smell our next stop from miles away! The Salt Lick BBQ, set amid the rolling hills and majestic Live Oak trees, is the perfect ending to a perfect day. Tuck into a feast of some of the finest Texas barbecue around, while enjoying a cold brew and oftentimes a guitar player picking out his favorite tune.
*Note: This tour operates by private booking only. Due to the immense popularity of the Salt Lick, this tour must be booked very much in advance. This is the ideal tour for larger groups as it is often hard to get a reservation for smaller parties.

Approximately 4.5 hours. Please allow extra time in the event of traffic delays.
