  • The view is very nice but Hawks Shadow still has a better view. There was a foul odor in the tasting room on the day we visited. We also noticed that they had a wood fire pizza oven truck on site but ...  more »
  • We went here on a spur of the moment trip from Wimberley. We loved the place. The wine was good and the setting was great. We liked it so much we joined their wine club. This will give us free tasting...  more »
  • Visited on our anniversary weekend - it was a rainy day, so the place wasn't too crowded. Everyone at the winery was so nice and had a nice chat with the woman leading our tasting. Wine was delicious ...  more »

  • This winery has the most beautiful grounds of any winery I have visited in Texas. You wind into the property on a small road and you are thinking what am I getting into here. You climd a steep hill to find a nice large parking lot leading to several very nice structures and a gorgeous outside seating area with an awesome view off the hill. I plan to come back when I have more time to just sit, enjoy some of the excellent wine and hang out and enjoy the location. They are also dog friendly which is always appreciated.
  • I'm disappointed in the service we received at Driftwood Estate Winery - absolutely pathetic. There were 6 of us females and we had a designated driver in a black Mercedes van. They kept saying we were a bus. I had already called ahead to confirm we could arrive in our larger vehicle after reading other bad reviews, and a female told me absolutely as long as we were a private group with a designated driver. We showed up and an incredibly rude OFF DUTY constable named Ray said to "get out." I told him he was being rude and he said "turn your car around and get out" and then told our driver "get 'me out of here!" This would be acceptable if we were drunk and behaving poorly but he was rude and disrespectful off the bat. Nothing disgusts me more than a chauvinistic man. He should be spoken to immediately. I then called the Driftwood Estate Winery and a male manager said "yep sorry bout it" and fed me a line about how they don't accept groups after a certain hour. We were not on a tour or part of a "group." I'm sorry, last I checked most people don't go to a winery to drink alone? 6 people seems like a small number of friends to me...and I double confirmed that when I called. The worst part was that he put the phone down and let me sit on hold while he proceeded to laugh and make fun of us with people in the background. I waited for 5 minutes when I finally realized he too was a disrespectful man who didn't seem to think he needed our business. He purposely left me hanging - what kind of customer service is that? Unwelcoming to out of town visitors - horrible experience. After reading reviews I'm seeing this is apparently (in their eyes) an acceptable way to run their business. I'm all about local businesses but these people don't deserve anyone's money. They prefer drunk drivers and don't like women. We all have families, husbands and kids to go home to and we had a driver simply because we were trying to avoid driving under the influence. We will take our money elsewhere. I hope the Dripping Springs police department sees these reviews throughout this page and see that this establishment is promoting DRUNK DRIVING. I will be reporting this to the TABC.
  • Bad experience!! Called for reservation. Was told to come on in. We arrived in a Limo. The goofy Constable said the owner would fire any employee allowing us in. If we had arrived in a Suburban, we could go in. But because we used a driver for safety we were told to leave. Stupid policy. No cars there. We were the only customers. But we were told to leave because of the transportation we chose. We will never buy their wine. We will tell everyone how we were treated at this place. Now on to a friendly winery!! Salude
  • Always have a good time when we go to the club member parties and the knowledgeable staff are pleasant to to talk with. I am newer to the wine scene and learning quite a bit from everyone there. Wines are wonderful and priced reasonably!
  • Will never visit again! Similar to other recent posts, we were turned away for arriving in a limo (there were 5 of us celebrating my mom and mother-in-law's 60th birthdays, not a rowdy bacholerette party) and then had an officer (Ray) cock his gun at us when we didn't turn around immediately. Tried asking if we could walk up the hill ourselves or quickly buy a bottle of wine and leave and the officer continued talking to us as if we had criminal backgrounds and were violating a million different offenses by just trying to understand why were were being turned away. Will never visit Driftwood again and will be reporting them to the TABC for promoting drinking and driving and reporting Ray for clearly not having watched the news he past two years and realizing there's no room for unjustified abuse and violence from sheriffs/police officers
