About Four Point Cellars (4.0 Cellars)
Say it with me “when I sip, you sip, we sip.” There was way too much to cover in my Original Weekend Wine Tour In Fredericksburg post, Four Point Cellars was the second stop that we made on our wine tour adventure, and as soon as I walked in I was instantly impressed. For starters, they have this cute little sign letting you know which way to go once you’re in (pictured below) giving customers a warm welcome.
Four Point Cellars was created in 2009, by three Texas winemakers – Pat Brennan of Brennan Vineyards, Gene Estes of Lost Oak Winery, and Kim McPherson of McPherson Cellars. They began exploring the idea of opening a winery in Fredericksburg, the heart of Texas wine country, and as a result of their collaboration, 4.0 Cellars opened its doors in April 2012. They have this really cool outdoor patio where local artist perform live music, making it the perfect location to chit chat with friends and drink some wine.
One thing that stood out to me compared to the other wineries, was that Four Point Cellars had a huge guestbook for all visitors to sign and even shows visitors how to download the TX Wine Passport App. This app allows you to find wineries by showing directions and routes, share your experiences via Facebook with your friends, and collect stamps when you visit wineries earning $10 for every 10 stamps at participating wineries!
Four Point Cellars offers three different types of wine tastings. The selections consist of a choice between dry, red, and sweet from three combined wineries. It’ll run you about $15.00 for six wines samples. If you read my last post then you probably know which wine tasting I went with. It was the sweet tasting! (listed on the purple sheet.) We opted to do the first available wine tasting outside since it was a nice day, but if you make a reservation ahead of time you can get a spot inside. They have a big tasting rooms, with lots of space and available staff.
