Here is a little of what they had to say:
Fredericksburg Texas once again ranks as one of the best places to live!
” Texas may not be the first place you think of when it comes to wine, but the Lone Star State is doing its darnedest to create some of the best varietals in America outside of the west coast. Dozens of wineries sprinkle the aptly-named Hill Country, with Fredericksburg at the epicenter of the burgeoning scene. A ramble along the Wine Road 290 reveals a remarkable range of Malbecs, Cabernets and Tempranillos served up in state-of-the-art tasting rooms. Hill Country loves a hootenanny, and the year’s biggest events combine great wine with rockabilly beats and a side of brisket (you’re in Texas after all) ”
