Fall Creek Vineyards is centrally located on the northwest shores of Lake Buchanan at Tow, Texas, in the Hill Country and is open to the public every day. Visitors enter the spectacular winery property down an allée of cyprus trees and are greeted by an inviting courtyard ensconced by classical architecture. It's a peaceful setting, and visitors enjoy dawdling while enjoying views of ripening grapes in the vineyards.
In the tasting room and gift shop with gourmet food bar, staff cordially invite guests to tour, taste and relax on the courtyard savoring the many acclaimed wines: Chardonnay, Caché, Viognier, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, MERITUS, newly released Tempranillo, and others.
Fall Creek Vineyards, owned by Ed and Susan Auler, is located at 1820 C R 2241/222 off Hwy 29 in Tow, Texas. http://www.fcv.com/
