We will leave the Hotel promptly at 9:30AM and drive out to St. Mary’s Catholic Church in the quaint German town of Fredericksburg (FBG), TX. St. Mary's Catholic Church is listed at one of the Painted Churches of Texas, but it also notable for its stained glass work.
From there we will head up to what makes Fredericksburg a top tourist stop: Main Street, with shopping, wine and food. Lunch we be on our own at The Fredericksburg Brewing Company. Here you may choose to taste 6 of the beers brewed on site or simply enjoy German or American inspired fare. After that, we will visit both Grape Creek and Becker Vineyards Wine Tasting Rooms on Main Street. There will be some time to take in some of the other shops - fancy some Chocolates? We can go by Quintessential Chocolates, a chocolatier in FBG that creates Liquor and Wine (yes, more wine) filled chocolates using a process over 200 years old that the Swiss developed called Starch Casting.
From Main Street we will head out to Bingham Family Vineyards to enjoy a tasting of their wines. Here we can also see up close and personal a bar top designed by our very own Stanton Studios. We will then head out for a quick photo op at Luckenbach, TX - Population 3… Don’t make us sing the song. Just think Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Finally, we will return to San Antonio where you will have the option to meet up with the other tour group at Pearl Brewery for dinner or be dropped off at the hotel.
This tour is stand alone and is not included in any packages.
