Safari Wine Tour at Grapetown Vineyard

Enjoy Award Winning Wines at Grapetown Vineyard on a working ranch deep in the Texas Outback. Come and visit Grapetown Vineyard and Farm in Fredericksburg Texas and get a behind-the scenes look at the complex operations and interactions of a working farm! The tour starts at the Historic Bankersmith Dance Hall and Saloon.

***This Wine Tour is NOT held at Safari Winery. Do NOT go to Safari Winery. As clearly printed elsewhere, this tour starts at Bankersmith Saloon at 7905 Old San Antonio Road, Fredericksburg Texas 78624 and our Safari Tram then takes you to Grapetown Vineyard and Farm for your Safari Wine Tour and tasting. Again, do NOT go to Safari Winery.

Before your wine tasting, and depending upon the size of the group a private driver will shuttle you from Bankersmith Saloon via our Brand New Zebra Tram to Grapetown Vineyard on a behind the scenes tour of our exotic wildlife and ranch operations.

You will see and possibly feed exotic animals like Kangaroos, Camels, Zebras, Alpacas, Bison and Longhorn! We also raise Boer Goats, Ponies, Nigerian Dwarf, African Pygmy and Saanen Dairy Goats, and even some Donkeys.

Please remember to tip your Tour Guide as they truly work very hard and appreciate knowing you enjoyed your tour.
