Overview

Leave busy Austin for a 4.5-hour wine and barbecue tour in the Texas Hill Country. Your driver takes you to the outskirts of Austin to visit your choice of three venues: The Salt Lick, Fall Creek Vineyards, and Duchman Family Winery. Linger at one or two of the stops, or visit all three — it's up to you.
  • 4.5-hour wine and barbecue shuttle from Austin
  • Stops include The Salt Lick, Fall Creek Vineyards, and Duchman Family Winery
  • Learn about wine production in the Texas Hill Country
  • Sink your teeth into some classic Texas barbecue dishes at the Salt Lick (own expense)
  • Leave the driving to the professionals while tasting Texas wines and barbecue
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.

Nice tour- a shuttle takes you to the Salt lick BBQ restaurant FIRST- so make sure you go hungry bc we ate lunch at around 11:30. In this tour only transportation is provided, so all your food and beverage is your responsibility. Salt lick was a really cool family owned BBQ spot. Service was fast and food was good. We then went to 2 wineries, both were nice, cute family owned and got to do tastings. Overall the tour was good and you get to see a part outside of the city- but i wouldn't recommend this tour if its your first trip to austin and you only have a few days. Tour guide Elisa was great and friendly.

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!
