COVID-19 UPDATE: Bernhardt Winery is announcing that we are closing due to a staff member testing positive for Covid-19.

On Tuesday of this week we posted a notice that we had been informed that a staff member of the food truck, Mary Jane’s Kitchen had been diagnosed with Covid-19. As a result, we had all staff members that had been on duty this past weekend tested. We have just found now that a crucial member of our staff has tested positive.

We are now closing the winery for at least one week and will have staff members retested next week to determine when we can reopen safely.

This means that this weekend’s Saturday Houston Hill Country Artisan Market and the Sunday Lawn Concert featuring the Already Gone Eagles Tribute band is also canceled. The Already Gone band has been tentatively rescheduled for November 29th, the Sunday after Thanksgiving, weather permitting.

We kindly ask that Sunday Lawn Concert reservation holders who would like a refund for your table or lawn seating ticket, please wait until we have time to directly contact you to submit your request for refund.

The winery will be closed beginning Friday, October 9th through Wednesday, October 14th. We will send out a post on our website and Facebook pages with further updates.

As you can imagine, we are all learning day-by-day what and how to deal with this health situation.

We want you, our wonderful customers to be safe and treated with dignity and respect. We will do everything to make sure you receive your refund.

We ask that you please be patient with us as we figure the best way to process the refunds and to reopen our grounds again safely.

Thank you,

Jerry and Jerri Bernhardt



Bernhardt Winery invites you to experience their open-air Houston Hill Country Artisan Markets during the month of October. On Saturday, October 10th and 24th from Noon till 6pm, visitors can feel the ambiance of Texas wine country, just a pleasant country drive northwest of Houston.

Guests can relax while taking in the spectacular rolling hillside view on the winery lawn under the shade of century-old native Pecan trees. The grounds will be open for wine flights and bottle sales of their award-winning wines.  Browse handcrafted goods from local artisan vendors on the spacious lawns, then kick back with live music, fresh local eats, and handcrafted wine. Be sure to take a stroll in the pumpkin patch for those fun family fall photo ops!

Houston Hill Country Artisan Markets are free for Bernhardt Winery customers, NO RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Table seating is limited and is available first come, first serve only. Visitors are also welcome to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets to find a socially distanced space on the lawn.

Picnics are always welcome, or pair your favorite Bernhardt wine with a gourmet cheese and charcuterie board, available to purchase from the winery. Guests can also choose from a variety of menu selections from Mary Jane’s Kitchen food truck.  No outside alcohol is allowed to be brought onto the property per TABC law.

While you sip, shop exclusive, handcrafted goods from local artisans while soaking in the country air. Farm fresh produce, delicious artisan specialties and handcrafted products will be offered by quality local vendors.
