Wonderland Winery is located in College Station and is inside Santa’s Wonderland. Wonderland Winery is owned by Karla Nash, former owner of Cork This! Winery, and it opened for the holiday season of 2013.
We had not heard of Santa’s Wonderland even though we later discovered we had driven by it many times during the non-holiday season. Wonderland Winery is in Santa’s Town and is in the building you first enter.
The rest of the building where the winery is located contains shopping, so it makes sense the winery’s tasting room is up a few stairs to differentiate it from the rest of the building. The actual location in the building was expanded in 2013 to accommodate the winery.
Tastings are done while standing at the rectangular bar. There is a tasting fee for a selection of four wines which includes the souvenir wine glass.
Glasses of wine cannot be purchased which again makes sense since people may be apt to take their wine out into the rest of Santa’s Town. You can buy the wine by the bottle.
Karla Nash made three special wines especially for Santa’s Wonderland:
- Santa’s Wonderland Cabernet Sauvignon
- Prancer’s Punch Pomegranate Zinfandel
- Santa’s Summer Sipper Peach Chardonnay
There are seven other wines which are available for tasting and purchase at the winery. Also available are plenty of holiday gifts.
Our first visit to Santa’s Wonderland was fun and we can see how it is especially a great place to take your children. While they are enjoying Santa, the reindeer, or a show, you can enjoy some wine at the Wonderland Winery. Be sure to check Santa’s Wonderland website or Facebook page for days and hours.
