Discover the charm and ambiance of the Texas Hill Country within just a short drive Northwest of Houston. Set atop a rise overlooking rolling hills and valleys, Bernhardt Winery takes pride in offering guests a relaxing Houston Hill Country experience. The winery, vineyard and event grounds are at the heart of a 20-acre estate and vineyard where you will experience the beauty of Texas sunsets, wine, and music.

Classic Wine Tasting

This tasting is truly unique to each guest’s taste! Step up to our tasting bar where your experience begins with an educational description of ten selected wines from our always evolving catalog–half of them dry and half of them sweet. Each guest can choose five wines that match perfectly with their personal palate. Try five dry wines, sweet wines, or explore a mix of both!

This experience lasts approximately 45 minutes, and we ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to your reservation time so we can greet you.
