We found a gem of a place in Lubbock, Texas called Caprock Winery. This is a great place to stop as you are making your way across Texas or are stopping in at Texas Tech. Their beautiful facilities include an open wine-tasting room, an outdoor patio, and a banquet hall. They offer tours of the winery and delicious wine tastings. My personal favorite was their Blush wine. Our personal wine tasting hostess and crew were truly some of the most friendly people we met on our wine journey. As an added bonus, we each received an adorable commemorative wine glass to take home that was included with the tasting and they say it is shatterproof.
This place is a must for those traveling through Lubbock or actually a great destination stop. Looking at their schedule, the winery hosts really fun events as well such as live band performances, movies in the courtyard, a wine festival, and BBQs. These events they host sound great on their own, but paired with some of their lovely local wine, you can't go wrong!
Visiting regional wineries is a great way to experience a town, socialize with the people, and try locally-made wine. Stop in a few on your way across the lone star state and let us know which ones you enjoyed as well.
