  • Good atmosphere. Our pourer could not have been kinder. We had a great time. The outside seating area could use more shade, fans or something. $20 tasting is refunded if you buy 3 or more bottles.
  • I first visited Hilmy with a group of about 20. As we were taking in the views in the back with a couple bottles of wine. The owners wife came out and brought us a fresh baked loaf of sourdough bread. Then later on she came back around to ask for some feedback on the bread as they were looking to possibly make it available for the customers. She then sat down with us and talked to us about Hilmy and how they came about starting the winery. It was such an awesome experience that my girlfriend and I stopped in on our drive back to Houston to get a few bottles which came with a free wine tasting and more info about the wines. Easily my favorite winery on both wine and experience.
  • My first wine tasting experience was here and it was amazing. Beautiful vineyard, amazing wines and overall a wonderful time. I will definitely be going back to visit.
  • We have visited a handful of wineries in the area and we so happy when we found Hilmy. From whites to reds, the wines are fantastic (not the typical sweeter TX wine) and the staff is fantastic. Sam walked us through all the wines in a friendly and inviting manner and gave us time to enjoy our time there. We will most certainly be back!
  • After hearing rave reviews from two VERY knowledgeable wino friends whose cellars are impressive, we finally came here with another couple recently. The exterior of this sleepy-appearing winery won't win any awards; however, the sleepiness ends at the door. Literally. The entry door is centrally hinged and about a foot thick of solid wood. Sounds weird, but that attention to details raised my antennae. The receptionist at the welcome desk warmly greeted us and steered to a super-cool and very knowledgeable staffer. He tended to us in a very laid back manner: no pressure. He knew every flippin' detail about the vineyards, fruit, the process, and the taste of each wine. Oh, and the wines. They're serious contenders. The white wines are THE BEST that I've had in Texas Hill Country: velvety smooth bursting with gorgeous fruit and spice notes. The reds were just a step behind. At at time when esposa and I are trying to reel in our wine club memberships, Hilmy's wines were just too damned good to ignore, so we piggybacked on our friends for a membership. If you're looking for high-quality, cellar-worthy wines at a reasonable price, look no further. So, you ask: why not 5 stars? Because the reds weren't quite there.
