In May of this year Austin Americana had the opportunity to photograph another beautiful vineyard wedding in the Texas Hill Country. The wedding photography was for Jen & David at Driftwood Estate Winery & Vineyard near Driftwood, Texas. Luckily, the bride and groom selected a fortuitous time of year, before temperatures began getting into the hot, triple-digit range.
Visiting Driftwood Estate Winery & Vineyard feels a little like being 1,000 miles from Austin, and not quite in Texas. It has wonderful hill country views, quiet country feel and 1st class wine appeal. The venue is large enough to accommodate medium to large weddings, but still has a small town appeal. The staff were friendly and helpful during the wedding and the food was some of the best looking and tasting that I’ve had in a long time.
Some other facts about Driftwood Vineyard:
- Grapes were planted in 1998 on 20 acre farm;
- Tasting room is open from 10-6 every day of the week;
- First commercial wine was bottled in 2003;
- Driftwood vineyard produces more than 5 different kinds of wine, totaling more than 4,500 cases per year.
