The most popular wine region in Texas is the Texas Hill Country, and the largest association of wineries in that region is Texas Hill Country Wineries. The association of over 50 wineries hosts multiple wine events where consumers can taste at up to four wineries per day over the course of each event as well as receive exclusive discounts on bottle purchases. The next event is the Wine & Wildflower Journey.
Texas is known for its wildflowers in the spring, so what better way to enjoy the beauty than to sip Texas wine at the same time! The Wine & Wildflower Journey is from March 22nd to April 16th. You can enjoy all twenty-six days on the wine trail or just go one day.
The cost of a Digital Wine & Wildflower Journey Passport ticket is $100 per couple or $65 per individual. The average winery tasting fee is $25 per person making the total value of your passport over $950. If you visit four wineries on the first day, you would have paid for the cost of your passport.
There is a limit to four winery tastings a day with your ticket which allows you to be responsible with your drinking and be safe during the event. There will be 43 wineries participating in the event, so you will have plenty of time in the beautiful Texas Hill Country tasting your favorite wines and getting exclusive discounts.

The passport events are great. Especially for someone like me, a wine writer, coming from California’s wine country wanting to try and wrap my brain and pallet around Texas wines. The problem is the haphazard continuity between the winery’s schedule of times and days of availability. It’s unfortunately more difficult, because of COVID-19, to plan a day, especially with some also requiring reservations. The Wine Road Barrel Tasting Passport in Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County, Behind the Cellar Door Passport in Amador County, and others provide an easy opportunity to explore the wineries with all of them open the same days and same times. The event really needs to be refined with all the wineries being on the same page when it comes to their availability.

I agree that things these days are much more difficult to plan during COVID. I usually resort to the winery’s Facebook page followed by their website in order to get the hours and plan. Enjoy your trip to Texas!
