If you’re a wine lover in Texas, you have to make a pilgrimage to Spicewood and visit Stone House Vineyard. From downtown Austin it’s only about an hour drive, and you’ll feel completely transported.
This winery sits on the banks of Lake Travis and—now that it is actually a lake again—there are fantastic views. This little oasis is the kind of place where you can spend an entire afternoon: It’s serene, relaxing, and oh hey, there’s wine! There’s also a great patio where you can do tastings or share a bottle of Tempranillo. While they offer a very respectable cheese board, it’s best to bring your own picnic to enjoy on the lawn.
