Comfort Cellars Winery is located in Comfort. Cathie Winmill is the owner and winemaker and the winery was opened in 1998. A vineyard was planted outside of Comfort in 1997.
Update: Apparently Comfort Cellars Winery is now closed. We do not have any other information as to why, but this is another case of Drink Local and please support your local winery.
When you enter the winery there is a large gift shop with soaps, clothing, wine accessories, unusual collectibles, and other items. As you make your way around the tasting room, which is located in a restored 1904 Hill Country home complete with a wood burning stove, the long tasting bar is to the right.
Tastings are done while standing at the tasting bar. There is a tasting fee for whatever wines are available and the tastings are poured from the uncorked bottles.
Comfort Cellars Winery makes unusual wines like a raisin wine, an orange wine, and a jalapeño wine. The jalapeño wine is great for cooking, marinating, or obviously drinking. You can also try what they call a Texas Hill Country Hottie. This is a blend of their jalapeño wine and Clamato Juice.
The winery was not really sure the percentage of their wines which use Texas grapes. They do produce 1,000 cases of wine a year.
Comfort Cellars Winery is on the Guadalupe Valley Wine Trail.
