What is the difference between Dripping Springs and Fredericksburg Tours?

Dripping Springs is about 45 minutes from downtown Austin. Here you will find fewer wineries but also a great mixture of breweries and distilleries. The drive distance between the locations is longer, as they are not all on a row as in Fredericksburg. The wineries are generally more boutique and casual. The Dripping Springs area is great for those looking to mix up their wine tour, include a stop for lunch (there are some great restaurant options), and want a shorter drive from Austin. 

Fredericksburg is about 1.5 hours from downtown Austin. Fredericksburg has 50+ wineries, vineyards, and tasting rooms, so it is bound to have what your group is looking for in terms of wine preference. Texas Tipsy Tours works with several preferred wineries, and we can also offer custom itineraries if you are looking for something special or unique. The Fredericksburg wineries range from boutique wineries to large Estate wineries, as you would see in Napa. However, there are fewer options to mix in breweries, distilleries, and food on the wine trail.

How many wineries/venues do you go to on your private tours?

Our full-day tours visit three wineries and include your tastings at those three wineries. Our half-day tours visit two locations and include your drinks at those locations. See specific item details for more information. 

How far is Dripping Springs/Fredericksburg from Austin?

Dripping Springs is about 45 minutes from downtown Austin. Fredericksburg is about 1.5 hours from downtown Austin. Fredericksburg offers a large selection of wineries so that serious wine drinkers will love the choices in this area. Dripping Springs is closer to Austin and offers not only wineries but breweries and distilleries, as well.
