we understand that booking a bus then scheduling out places to go during your rental time can be tough. Especially if you are not originally from Austin or Texas in general. So Red Star Party Bus is here to help try and make your life and planning a little easier. We want you to be able to utilize your time in the best way possible. We have been doing this for 6 years now so we know a thing or two about the wine vineyards, places to stop for lunch, and even brew tour spots to hit up. These are just a few places listed there are many more options to choose from.
Here are a few of our picks for wine vineyards:
Fredericksburg Wine Road 290: This is the place to be when it comes to wine tasting and visiting multiple places. Though it can become to much for some of the vineyards when having large groups to accommodate. So, to help you plan your trip here are a few tips. Because Road 290 becomes so packed they are unable to accommodate groups larger than 12 passengers during their peak seasons on weekends. Though at times if you reserve a spot with them in advance they may accommodate up to 14 -16 guest. Just make sure to call in advance and give all the details to the vineyards down 290 you would like to visit.
Trattoria Lisina: They offer food, a beautiful scenery, outdoor seating, and even a playground for kids if you decide to go out with the family.
Driftwood Estate Vineyards: They are a great place to relax and take in the day while enjoying and experiencing the many flavors of wine they have to offer. Though we do ask that you read through their larger group policies here: LIMO/BUS
Fall Creek Vineyards: And last but not least Fall Creek Vineyards with an amazing out door patio, customer service, and selection of wine. They are also located right across from the famous Salt Lick BBQ. If attending on a busy Friday, Saturday, or Sunday and looking to visit Salt Lick afterwords we recommend stopping by and picking up a buzzer from Salt Lick first. We have been informed the buzzer will work at the vineyard and still notify you when your table is ready. What a way to utilize your rental time with us!
Twisted X Brewing Company: Our go to Brew Tour company in Driftwood, TX. They have always worked great with our customers. We always receive great feedback from clients on their experience with Twisted X. Give them a call in advance to let them know that you are coming if you have a larger group. This way they will be ready.
A little Salt Lick BBQ info for the road: Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays this place can get packed! So be prepared for wait times between 30 minutes and 2.5 hours. If you have larger groups and not sparing time at Fall Creek Vineyard make a reservation. You are able to make reservations up to a week in advance. Salt Lick allows you to bring your own beverages and their wine tasting room next door sells beer by the bucket as well.
Just remember when visiting the vineyards and brew companies they have a calm, laid back environment. These are places to inform guest on the many different wines, beers, their distinct taste, and best ways to pair them. They would like for us as a limo and party bus company to inform customers before arrival to please be respectful of their property, smaller grouped guest, and relaxing atmosphere. If guest are not courteous during their visit they will be asked nicely to please leave. We love our relationships with the vineyards and brew companies and ask that everyone please respect and honor their wishes.
If you have any questions please feel free to call we are here to help as much as we can.
