Fiesta Winery whose main location is in Bend, Texas is still expanding. They first opened a tasting room on Main Street in Fredericksburg in September 2012. Now they have opened another tasting room down the road in the heart of US Highway 290 among other wineries.
I stopped in to visit the tasting room which is in the same plaza as Six Shooter Cellars. From outside the building, the sign for Fiesta Winery indicated to me the tasting room was going to be similar in size to the tasting room in Fredericksburg. How wrong I was after I walked in. The tasting room is very large, painted in the same Fiesta Winery colors, and offered a very large tasting counter.
I was the only one in the tasting room and had a nice conversation with the tasting guide present. I told her I was surprised when I first heard there was going to be another location in Fredericksburg for Fiesta Winery since they really aren’t that distant from each other. She brought up a very good point that the Main Street location attracts shoppers walking in Fredericksburg while the new location attracts winery visitors who are out in search of wine on the wine trail.
The wine and tastings for Fiesta Winery 290 are the same as the Main Street location where there is a tasting fee for five tastings which includes a Fiesta Winery glass. The new tasting room has live bands on the patio every Saturday evening and with Six Shooter Cellars nearby, it makes a great double combination to visit.
Make a point to stop at Fiesta Winery 290 the next time you are in the Fredericksburg area.
