Look, I don't claim to be a wine connoisseur, but I love wine and have hit up a winery or two in my lifetime. When you think of premiere wineries in our great state of Texas, you may feel the 'best' ones are only located in Fredericksburg, which is a trek for those of us here in the 432, you're looking at about a 5-hour drive, or better yet, you may hit up Hill Country for the 'good stuff.'

But I am here to say that is not necessarily true. I've hit up a coupleof really good places just about an hour and a half up the road in Lubbock. CapRock Winery (English Newsom Cellar) is one. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the grounds are beautiful! Definitely the perfect setting for a wedding. Otherwise pay it a visit and stay awhile for a tasting that will set you back less than 20 bucks for a glass or tasting of whatever your flavor of wine is. CapRock Winery is located at 408 E Woodrow Rd.


I also recently visited the Llano Estacado Winery. Love it here! I'm a sucker for a charcuterie board and their's was pretty good. Great location, lovely atmosphere. You can check them out at 3426 F M 1585.

If you would like to make a weekend of hitting up wineries in Lubbock, be sure to visit these as well:

  • Pheasant Ridge Winery-3507 E. County Rd. 5700
  • McPherson Cellars Winery-1615 Texas Ave.
  • Burklee Hill Vineyards-1109 Broadway St.

In case you were not aware of all of this fabulousness now you know!

Well, the folks at Road Snacks think they've figured it out. Again, they've claimed to figure out which cities are the snobbiest in The Lone Star State, not me.
