Main Street Wine
Check out a few wine dives inside the Fredericksburg, Texas, city limits!
I can't say enough about how much we adore the Pontotoc Weingarten, which is located close to Hondo's on Main Street. Don't be shy - Order a picnic basket (add an extra brownie to it--Just trust me) and a bottle of sangria and hang out in their charming, relaxed courtyard. This is one of our favorite spots in town. The Money family has the coolest story! Tell them Abode Hill Country sent you!

290 Wine Trail Recommendations
Check out some of our favorite wineries, located outside of Fredericksburg along the 290 wine trail.
Are you looking for delicious Texas wine and quite possibly the best view in the Texas Hill Country? Pedernales Cellars is located off the beaten path in Stonewall, Texas, and offers both! Their reds are robust. Our favorite is the Kuhlken Reserve. Pack a snack and sit on their lawn for a relaxing afternoon!

Popular winery on the 290 wine trail! We love the Mouvedre, the Hunter, and the sparkling rosé! Great for a large group, but always try to make a reservation! We had a birthday lunch there. Ask me any questions!

The wine. It’s not a huge winery, but the winery makes a statement! Great patio if the weather is nice. There’s also indoor tasting.

So many recommendations on this one, and it’s just a quick jaunt from the Sunday Abode! First and foremost- It’s a place to park….yourself! Grab a picnic and have lunch at the picnic tables while the kids burn off energy at the playground! Head into town the first weekend of October for Octoberfest, arguably one of Fredericksburg’s most fun and notable annual events! Lighting of the Christmas Tree and carols occurs the first weekend of December!

Food scene
Calling all early birds! This place gets busy, especially during the weekends! However, if you arrive a little later, it's worth the wait! This dive is one of the "no-frills" original brunch spots in town. How do you feel about crostinis with baked brie, candied pecans and bacon jam? There's something called a "Big Ass Sandwich" that will knock your socks off. Honestly, we love everything on the menu. The omelets are incredible. I've heard the lunch menu is top-notch, but I have a hard time parting with my favorite meal of the day! You will leave needing a nap.

I'm certain there are other things on the menu, but I always get the pulled pork fries in the picture and chase them with the cheese curds. We call in and pick up at the window quite a bit! I. love. food.

Yes, please. Make a reservation or head next door and grab a taco at Tubby's while you wait for a table. Delectable. This is an upscale take on German food.

Affectionately referred to as the beer castle, this brewery is conveniently located in the 290 wine trail! It’s a great spot to enjoy a tasting and a German pretzel. You can always make a meal of it during brunch, lunch, or dinner!
