“Family owned and operated”
The Fredericksburg Winery is owned and operated by the Switzer Family. My Name is Cord Switzer - I am the guy who will be writing the information. Like Everything else at our winery we do it all, this is our personal website no one else is writing this information for me. What is contained on this site reflects our approach - our opinions - our attitude. Everyone is entitled to how they approach winemaking - how they approach lite - we have ours and for us it is right.
The Traveling Winers on Texas Wine Trail
An interesting experience, for sure! Fredericksburg Winery is located in the heart of downtown Fredericksburg, Texas in a sort of strip mall area. At first, we didn’t know what to expect and had in our minds a liquor store…but no! This truly is a winery. They even make their wine right on sight.
The thing that was most intriguing about this visit was the learning experience. Now, as you will see below, this is one of the very few wineries that us “winers” held all sorts of opinions! Whew! It gets a little heated sometimes! Anyway, back to the education. Our tour guide was Cord, one of the co-owners, and he was full of information – from the history of their winery, to the legislative processes behind the wine industry, to how to tell, through taste, the sweetness level of the wine. Again, even among our small group, we have three of us that found this somewhat interesting and 1 of us that…well….let’s just say, didn’t care for the approach. That is the beauty of being the owner of a business. You get to choose how, when, why and where you deliver your message, regardless of other’s opinions. This is taken to heart at Fredericksburg Winery and at The Vineyard Trail.
So, although our opinions vary greatly on whether this is a good stop on your trail, we will sum it up for you and say that we gave it three clusters and therefore would, overall, recommend it for the educational nature it offers.
