Two miles from the Paniolo is the historic town of Sisterdale (population 25). Don't let the size of our town fool you. It boasts the home of Sister Creek vineyards, where an 1885 cotton gin has been restored to house the winery. Their wine is aged in French and American oak barrels so indulging in wine tasting is quite a treat.
The Texas Hill Country Wine Trail offers numerous wineries to visit. There are special Trail Events planned throughout the year or just stop by for a tasting. A few, just minutes away are Becker Vineyards, Comfort Cellars, Fredericksburg Winery, and Grape Creek Vineyards.
