  • Stopped her a while back. Great, friendly service. Nice sample of red and white wines. Bought a bottle of red and white. Nice tasting room decor. Good parking. Not a big winery, but nice. 
  • One of the best wineries in the area in my opinion. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Excellent wine especially if you enjoy unique red blends. The tasting room is very inviting and they have a g...  read more »
  • We went by Hilmy Cellars on a wine tasting weekend. The staff was very nice. We did not care for their wine. I would not go back again. 
  • A relaxing winery with an expansive view of the vineyards under a very welcomed covered patio. Their wine were either a hit or miss with me during my flight tasting, but I remember leaving here thoroughly enjoying the experience despite our server's lack of knowledge on their wine (it was only her 2nd day on the job). There was another thing I'll remember about this tasting room and that's the very noticeable pair of great white Pyrenees that roam around seeking petting from guests and AC from the heat. Bella and Simon are two of the most gentle dogs you'll ever meet and I may have spent way more time with them than the wine so sorry if my review can't shed a light on their wine.
  • A very neat winery with a different feel than a lot of the bigger places on 290. You might not love all their wine, but I promise you'll find it interesting. The covered porch area is a fantastic place to hang out and enjoy a glass while you talk, read, or play a board game.
  • The staff was nice, the outdoor seating was cooled by a misting system that cut the Texas heat & the wine was good.
  • Yesterday was my first Hilmy Wine p/u and it was great! The Wines were great the music and employees were top notch. I enjoyed the event. I can't wait till the next one. The barrel tasting was excellent and I think the members should vote on the label for the bottle.
  • Hilmy is a welcome break from some of the larger, more crowded wineries on the 290 Wine Trail. It boasts a nice shaded patio area (with misting fans!) overlooking a field of grape vines. The winery is a working farm, so if you sit and stay for a while you may see dogs, guinea fowl, sheep and goats. I love to bring snacks and enjoy a glass of wine outdoors (but if you have food, don't be surprised if one of the farm friends pays you a visit!). The wine here is fantastic--they use as many grapes grown on-site as possible, and anything additional they have to buy comes from Texas. The wine pourers are friendly and attentive no matter how crowded the tasting room is. I always feel welcome and at ease here (plus I usually end up bringing a bottle home for later). Whether you're hitting the trail for the first time or the twentieth, be sure to stop in!
