Bell Springs Winery
When Bell Springs Winery opened in July 2010, its mission was to add a fresh, new voice to winemaking in the Texas Hill Country. The 26-acre winery certainly accomplished that with wines like the Drippin' Sweet White, tempranillo, and sangiovese. Its varietals have proved popular enough to warrant releasing up to eight new wines every year and reaching an annual production capacity of 2,500 cases.
In the process, Bell Springs happened upon a separate mission: spreading the word about the region's great wines without pouring them directly into the local water supply. With that goal in mind, in 2015 it set up Sidecar Tasting Room on Old Fitzhugh Road, approximately 5 miles away from the vineyard itself. Here, as with the tasting room located at the vineyard proper, guests are invited to imbibe the winery's vino along with victuals such as cheese, meat, and olives.
