What You Can Expect

Austin's Salt Lick and Winery Shuttle

Texas Hill Country

After making your own way to the Austin Visitors Center or the JW Marriott Austin hotel to meet your shuttle.

Travel about 30 minutes to Driftwood in Texas Hill Country. You'll have at least 45 minutes at each stop, giving you time to try some authentic Texas barbecue and go wine tasting without worrying about your transportation.

The Salt Lick opened in 1967, and became nationally famous after its barbecue was heralded on the Travel Channel in 2008. Salt Lick Cellars planted its vines in 2006 and served up its first bottles of wine in 2008.

Fall Creek Vineyards was founded on a cattle ranch in 1975 and has become a leader in making the Texas Hill Country known as a wine region. The Duchman Family Winery opened in 2004 and has become known for its award-winning wine made from various grape varietals grown in Texas.

Drinks and food are at your own expense. Expect the tastings to cost between $6 to $25; the Salt Lick is cash only, but they do have an on-site ATM. Your tour ends with return to Austin in the mid-afternoon.

This was great to see some areas outside of Downtown Austin. Our tour guide, Dustin, was friendly and knowledgeable! Don’t fill up on breakfast, as this tour gets you to the Salt Lick early to beat the crowd, and you want to try their food! The wineries were beautiful, with a great wine selection.

Very good, stopped at Salt LIck first for BBQ, and I was able to go to the winery for 5 minutes at that stop, next two stops were good, the scenery at the last stop was very nice, and good champagne/prosecco!

This tour is so great! My girlfriends and I went as a part of my bachelorette party weekend, and it was the perfect way to wind down our trip. The wineries were beautiful, the barbeque was awesome, and our tour guide Joe was so knowledgeable and funny! Definitely would recommend this tour to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Austin!
