Like Mike Tyson, wine is usually robust, is often boxed, and should never influence tattooing decisions. Imbibe the spirit of a champion with today's Groupon: for $29, you get one ticket to a Texas Hill Country & Winery Tour from Historic Texas Tours in San Antonio (up to a $65 value). The price of the tour does not cover wine-tasting fees, which range from $3 to $10, depending on the winery. Click here for a schedule of upcoming tour dates.

With the majestic curves of Texas Hill Country as a backdrop, the knowledgeable guides of Historic Texas Tours escort guests through the well-aged avenues of several towns and up to three different wineries. Each seven-hour trek begins with a jaunt through Smittyville, allowing tour takers to corral muffins and coffee while grazing shops for gifts and souvenirs. Next, the historic High Street directs explorers through the bustling borough of Comfort, where strategically placed signs illuminate the town’s origins and make it nigh impossible for water balloons to travel more than three miles without interference. After refueling with lunch at one of Comfort’s grub hubs, groups head to the first of up to three different wineries.

Although tours may differ based on the availability of certain wineries, each vino-centered stop promises to offer visitors the opportunity to sip some of the area’s top juices. As an added bonus, some wineries provide taste testers with a tour, clarifying guests' understandings of how baby grapes are made.

Historic Texas Tours

As a San Antonio native, Shelly Reynolds has been exploring the city all her life. Luckily, she doesn't miss out on a global perspective: While sharing her lifetime of knowledge through Historic Texas Tours, she and her staff get to meet and befriend travelers from all over the world. The company's tours focus as much on forming new friendships as discovering the local sights as they expose visitors and locals alike to area wineries, restaurants, and landmarks at the direction of friendly guides. Food tours unearth local eateries with a tour itinerary that varies often to reward visitors who go on repeat trips, and journeys into the Texas Hill Country offer complex tastes of locally made wines. Mission Trail tours explore edifices that date back to the 1700s, including the oldest unrestored stone church in the United States and a used-horse dealership.

Was a lot of fun. I learned a little more about Texas, and just had a real good time.

Lovely, relaxed pace, and great to have a driver so that you could do wine tastings without worrying about driving immediately afterward.

ARC provided a 1st rate experience! The Texas Hill Country wine tour was a fun, informative peek into the art of winemaking, and more importantly, wine TASTING! My girlfriend and I both enjoyed the day, and would definitely consider doing it again. Thanks Alicia!
