Guided group tours reveal the family vineyard's process for producing its handcrafted, award-winning wines. Winemakers and tour guests will also stop by the winery's barrel room. After the educational tour, guests will be able to sample the wine they have been learning all about out on the deck or in the winery, depending on the weather, and enjoy a light meal of pizza and sweets. The experience includes a group photograph that is then put on a personalized wine label, which can be placed on select wine bottles. A bottle to put it on may be purchased for an additional cost, and guests will have an opportunity to purchase any other wines that catch their interest. Tours are available by appointment only.
When Birgit and Bruce Anderson first purchased their 2-acre property in Burleson, Texas, the new surroundings where they grew vegetables and raised farm animals reminded them of the then-popular television show Little House on the Prairie. The couple—who originally trained as a tax agent and sociology professor—and their daughters farmed the land for several years before a 1995 trip to Napa Valley seduced them into the vineyard lifestyle. After 10 years of studying grape-growing and winemaking, the Andersons opened Sunset Winery, which they've nicknamed and trademarked "The Best Little Wine House in Texas."
Since opening, the late-blooming winemakers have established themselves by winning multiple prizes for their wines and drawing a steady stream of visitors each year. Sunset's lauded bottles include Moon Glow merlot and Twilight Tango malbec, the latter of which won top accolades at the 2009 GrapeFest People's Choice Wine Tasting Classic, edging out other malbecs and a chagrined Susan Lucci.
