As the fifth-highest wine-producing state with the fifth-highest number of wineries, it stands to reason that taking a tour of the 290 Wine Trail will get you up close and personal to some of the best vineyards around. Whether you are throwing a bachelorette party or booking a romantic getaway with your partner, there’s no better way to experience Texas Hill Country than on a hop on, hop off shuttle.

Why take your own tour when you can have someone drive you everywhere you need to go on a revolving schedule? This way, you can sample all the finest wines the region has to offer without worrying about getting behind the wheel or being constrained by someone else’s timetable. Plus, when you sign up for one of our hop on, hop off shuttles, you get to hit a bunch of wineries in one day for one low price – all along US Hwy 290.

Freedom: The Best Thing About Our Shuttles

You don’t get too much leeway or freedom with a private tour. You have to go where they say, on their timetable. Our shuttle, on the other hand, offers access to 18 wineries and breweries in Texas Hill Country with pickups every 15 minutes. With no long, drawn-out visits waiting for everyone else to finish, you can maximize your time at each winery.

Visit as many, or as few, as you want — on your own schedule. Forget about a tour guide, tight schedules, and dawdling guests. You can choose the shuttle option that gives you the most flexibility.

We offer three options when it comes to our shuttle tours. Here’s a look at all of them. Keep in mind, we are the only wine shuttle service in all of Fredericksburg, Texas.

Saturday Hop On, Hop Off Shuttle

This is our primary shuttle service and our most affordably priced at $39.99. This service operates every Saturday from 10am until 6pm between Fredericksburg, TX and all the wineries located along HWY 290 East. You can join the shuttle at any time, as they leave every 15 minutes from our pickup location at the Inn on Barons Creek Hotel (308 S. Washington St.).

This means you can make a full day of it or just visit a few of your favorite wineries and then get back to town for shopping and lunch. Here’s a glimpse of the route:


  1. Barons Creek Vineyards
  2. Barrelle
  3. Blumenthal Farms
  4. Fat Ranch Winery & Brewery
  5. Fiesta Winery
  6. Grape Creek Vineyards
  7. Heath Sparkling Wines
  8. Longhorn Cellars
  9. Safari Winery
  10. Six Shooter Cellars

How Does it Work?

You can book your Saturday hop on, hop off shuttle pass in three easy steps:

1. Book

Reserve your shuttle passes online before you arrive. Got eight or more people with you? Don’t forget to arrange tasting reservations in advance with the wineries, as many require them. Pro tip: make your winery reservations in route order.

2. Board

Board a shuttle at the pickup site at the Inn on Barons Creek. Upon arrival, you will get a wristband and information about each of the wineries and distilleries you can visit. Choose a few or choose them all. The shuttles take off every 15 minutes starting at 10am every Saturday, so if you miss one, just wait for the next one!

3. Enjoy

You will arrive at each winery every 15 minutes so you can hop on, and hop off as many times as you want for the duration of the day. Shop and taste for as long as you like at each one, then hop back on the shuttle when you’re ready to move on. Be sure to catch the last shuttle before it leaves at 6pm, and budget your time wisely so you can hit all the wineries on your list.

Fun Friday and Sippin’ Sunday

If you can’t make our Saturday shuttle, come have fun with us on Fridays and Sundays. Choose from 12 wineries for just $49.99 per person, departing from downtown Fredericksburg, Texas, at Inn on Barons Creek. While the Saturday hop on, hop off shuttle has pickups every 15 minutes, the Fun Friday shuttle has only one pickup at 11am and Sippin’ Sunday only has one pickup at noon. The upside to this is that you can beat the weekend crowds.
