Fredericksburg – Wildseed Farms and Wine Tasting
Thursday, April 14 from 8:15am-5:30pm
Let’s take a trip to the Hill Country and visit the Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg. The farm originally opened in 1983 in Eagle Lake near Columbus as a seed producer and initially only allowed the public to visit in April of every year. The farm is a working wildflower farm with fields of flowers in various stages and is the nation’s largest working wildflower farm with over 200 acres. It has been growing fields of wildflowers for the production of seed for over 35 years.
Next, we will visit the William Chris Vineyards in Hye, Texas for lunch and wine tasting. On arrival we will have a farmhouse tour and proceed to a screened pavilion where we will have a picnic lunch and wine tasting. There will be speakers during the wine tasting, sharing stories of the winery and a discussion about Texas climate and geography and how this compares to the world of wine.
Next, we will drive back to Fredericksburg for free time and shopping. Cost includes motor coach transportation, lunch, wine tasting and tips. Register for Class #336. Fee: $95
