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: Comfort Cellars Winery is now closed.
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.
