Fiesta Winery Tasting Room

Fiesta Winery Main Street Tasting RoomSummary: We visited the Fiesta Winery tasting room located in the quaint and delightful town of Fredericksburg, Texas. The Fiesta Winery facility with a tasting room is located about 85 miles north of Fredericksburg.

As one walks along the sidewalks of Fredericksburg, the numerous one-story buildings are reminiscent of days of old. Many plaques located throughout Main Street note the buildings ages.

Soon we found the colorful sign hanging over the sidewalk announcing the Fiesta Winery tasting room. A display showcasing a selection of wine-related gifts can be seen just inside the doorway. Located a few feet inside is a long tasting counter with bar stools.

Fiesta Winery Main Street Tasting RoomThe Fiesta tasting room in Fredericksburg receives a great deal of foot traffic. Common comments often heard have included, “There’s a tasting room. Let’s go have some wine.” Or “I’ve never had wine before; let’s try it here.”

The Fiesta Name

The owners tried to come up with a name for the winery. Every idea they had was already used in the wine industry. Eventually the name was chosen on the back porch as they were sipping wine. Since they make wines that are easy to drink and fun, they came up with the name Fiesta.

The winery facility with a tasting room is on the 6th generation owned Baxter Ranch in Lometa, Texas about 85 miles north of Fredericksburg. Another tasting room is located just outside Fredericksburg on Rt. 290. That tasting room has many visits by wine enthusiasts while the tasting room in the town Fredericksburg receives tourists.

Southern Sparkle was a carbonated wine with a pink color. The wine offered notes of cranberry and raspberry.

This yellow color wine was aromatic with lots of citrus and tangerine notes that lingered. The wine retails for $16.99. Skinny Dippin’ was sweet with a pale yellow color. The wine was very fruity with notes of apple and peach. This wine retails for $15.99.

Tempranillo 2012 was a translucent dark ruby color. The wine offered black cherry notes and medium-bold tannins. The wine with a medium-body had a medium/high acidity. The wine was 12% alcohol and retails for $29.95. Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 was a translucent dark ruby color. The wine offered notes of dark fruits and hints of leather and tobacco. This full-bodied wine had medium tannins and acidity. The 12.5% alcohol wine retails for $23.99.

Back Porch Sittin’ is the wine the owners were sipping on the back porch when they came up with the winery name. The wine was a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and blackberry. The translucent light ruby colored wine had blackberry notes. The wine offered very mild tannins with a medium-body and acidity. The wine had 10% alcohol and retails for $15.99. Pair this wine with a rocking chair on a porch.
