Last weekend, my best friend Lindsey and I decided to plan a much-needed weekend away. We tossed around several ideas, but nothing seemed to stick until someone suggested visiting wineries. After a bit of research, we found the perfect destination: Burnet, Texas, just north of Marble Falls. Known for its scenic beauty and warm hospitality, Burnet also boasts some of the best wineries in the hill country. Here, we share our favorite vineyards and experiences with you.

7 Best Wineries Near Burnet, Texas

Torr Na Lochs VineyardTorr Na Lochs Winery

This family-owned winery sits on top of a hill with breathtaking views of the Texas Hill Country. Proudly offering a wide selection of award-winning wines, it’s no wonder Torr Na Lochs is quickly becoming a must-visit destination for wine lovers.  They even have longhorns on the property you can see and live music. 

From their crisp white wines to their bold reds, the tasting options are endless. I highly recommend visiting this charming winery at lunch to experience the warmth and hospitality of the staff, while sipping on delicious wines and enjoying a charcuterie board, salad, paninis, or pizza (on the weekends). My favorite wine was their 2021 Picpoul Blanc white and my second favorite was a blend, the 2019 Henry’s Red Wine. Lindsey’s favorite was the 2019 Sweet Sunset. Located at 7055 TX-29, Burnet, TX 78611.

Perissos Vineyard & WineryPerissos Winery

This winery at 7214 Park Rd 4 W, Burnet, TX 78611 is undoubtedly one of the highlights of our trip. The vineyard has a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere that immediately puts you at ease. We enjoyed sampling several of their award-winning wines, including their Syrah and Aglianico. Lindsey’s favorite was a sweet wine called Serendipity. My favorite variety was the 2022 Picpoul Blanc followed by the 2022 Viognier. (I never realized I was such a fan of Picpoul wine!)

They offer charcuterie board and cheese plates. Don’t miss the chance to take a guided tour of the vineyard with Craig, where you’ll learn about their sustainable practices and the winemaking process.

Texas Legato WineryTexas Legato Winery

The Texas Legato Winery at 2935 FM 1478, Lampasas, TX 76550 was another gem. This family-owned and operated vineyard has been around for over a decade, and they sure know how to make a good fruit wine like their blueberry wine. Their tasting room was cozy and welcoming, and the wine experts there were knowledgeable and friendly.

Located at 316 E Wallace St, San Saba, TX 76877. Don’t let the name of this winery fool you – it’s open to everyone, not just those planning weddings.

The quaint, intimate tasting room made it feel like a one-of-a-kind experience.
