Mom’s Day Out- Exploring Driftwood Wineries
May 11, 2019
After watching the fun that many of our farmhouse guests enjoy on wine tours in the area, I had an epiphany. Why not pull some of my girlfriends together and pretend that we are Texas Hill Country tourists for a day? After all, we are hard working moms and this could be a Mother's Day treat to ourselves. So one Sunday afternoon we gathered at the farmhouse to await our chariot--the Texas Tipsy Tours Mercedes Sprinter.
The van was absolutely perfect! Clean, cool, roomy... and it came with a pretty cute driver who waited on us hand and foot. (Sorry ladies, he's taken...)
We proved that middle aged moms can take a wine tour selfie too!
Our first stop was Fall Creek Vineyards right in the heart of Driftwood, TX, just minutes from the farmhouse. We entered the property through a beautiful vine covered archway to the tasting areas which are in the different rooms of what was the former residence of a physician.
The tastings at Fall Creek were already lined up for us with a nice descriptive menu, along with pricing for full bottle options.
