The Hill Country is Wine Country!

In the past two decades or so, the wine industry in the Hill Country has exploded with growth. That’s easy to see, with new wineries opening at a rapid pace...but we, and some of our readers, have questions. How are productive wine regions discovered? Are there official wine producing areas, and if so, how are they designated as such? This article will dig a little deeper into these questions and more.

A Handy Hill Country Q & A

At Backroads Reservations, we’re especially aware that the Texas Hill Country is reliant in a big way on tourism. We’re proud to welcome people here, and to introduce them to our own little corner of heaven. With that said, we’re also aware that everyone can’t be from here; we have a tongue-in-cheeksaying that “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.”

A Park By Any Other Name: Hill Country WMAs

Visitors to the Texas Hill Country are generally aware of the state, county, and city parks available to them for recreation and relaxation. From the sprawling 12,000-plus acres of the Government Canyon State Natural Area to the modest but still impressive 16 acres of Old Tunnel State Park, there’s plenty of space and natural diversity to explore, not to mention parks of wildly varying sizes!

What guests are saying...

The Tabasco Ranch and its cabins are so beautiful. As soon as we got there we saw deer and horses, and it was easy to find. It’s a good place to go when you want to get away from the city life, it’s so peaceful at night and it’s such a memorable place. It was really clean when we got to our cabin and it came stocked with everything! Definitely will be coming back!
entertained, but if your going to rely on TV be forewarned that there is a DISH tv, but the package is basic. There's some channels but not very many for kids. There is WiFi, and the signal was strong and fast for our needs. We had a small issue with what to do with trash, but that was quickly resolved with a message. I would add that if you have children, they will love the animals. Also, if you bring children, remember to bring something for them to sleep on unless you plan on them sleeping with you on the bed, or on the couch. We used pretty much everything in the kitchen, there is a keurig, an electric stove, and oven, and a smaller fridge and freezer. Like I said we used everything, and it was perfect for our needs. The bathroom and shower were perfectly clean. Cleanliness is important especially during these times. At no point were we ever worried about the level of cleanliness of the cabin. We very much recommend this place, and will be making another visit in the near future for sure. Thank you for everything
The location is set inside the property of a ranch so you feel very comfortable about the area. You need a code to enter the gate. It is very quiet at night and the blanket of billions of stars are worth spending time to appreciate after dark. The ranch is not far from 87 and I-10 so you can get most places with those two freeways. There's plenty of closet space. And the bathroom is wonderful. Awesome shower. Be sure to bring food and snacks.
Comfy and cozy, we enjoyed our stay! Best parts were being able to see the beautiful horses so up close. The night stars are also amazing. Very central to Boerne, SA, Fredericksburg and other unique hill country towns. Would definitely recommend.
Nice place to get away for a few days! My husband and I, and our puppy, enjoyed our weekend getaway at Tabasco Ranch a lot. The cabin is very sweet; well maintained and has everything needed for a short stay. The hosts were friendly and quick to respond to questions. read less
This was a great stay just outside of San Antonio letting us "get away from it all" for the weekend. The property is a decent size but not huge, and your within sight of the neighboring cabins but we never heard our neighbors so it was still very private. Great views of the night sky with minimal light pollution (we even got to see Comet Neowise both nights we were there!). Easy driving distance to Fredericksburg, Kerrville, and of course Comfort :) The owners were very friendly as well and wanted anytime they drive past, never felt like it was an inconvenience to be there. Over all it was a great weekend and a much needed getaway for us, we would happily stay here again in the future! r
