Nestled in the Hill Country, off the beaten path, rests Blue Lotus Winery.  This gorgeous winery lies just beyond the outskirts of Seguin on FM 20. If you’re looking to escape for a day, walking the beautiful vineyards filled with grape vines, roses, and lavender plants while sipping exquisite wine, is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

Hill Country Wineries Reviews

Blue Lotus Winery offers a great selection of house-brewed wines and meads.

Blue Lotus Winery is owned and operated by Michael and Melissa Poole (and unofficially run by their two little daughters).  Michael began brewing beers when he got out of the Navy which turned into a deep love and passion for wine and mead.  Though the Pooles offer a variety of wines at Blue Lotus Winery, they grow and craft most of the wines offered here themselves onsite.  The tasting room is open Thursday – Sunday from 12 pm – 5 pm (a perfect ending to a morning spent at Polmedia Polish Pottery and Stoneware.  In addition to a wonderful afternoon spent in the Hill Country, Blue Lotus Winery offers a Wine Club and monthly events including dinners and festivals.  Details can be found on their website.

The Gallery at Blue Lotus Winery

Blue Lotus Winery offers event hosting in their gorgeous Gallery, Tasting Room, & Vineyard.  Tucked between rows of stunning grape vines is a gazebo that would make a gorgeous place to say I do.  Inside the winery is the Tasting Room, offering seating for 50, this gorgeous room is filled with floor to ceiling windows looking out into the beautiful gardens.  The Gallery is a beautiful surprise, it has elegant seating available for 80 around banquet style tables, but the really fascinating aspect to this room is the artwork adorning the walls.  Michael’s grandfather painted these stunning works of art.  They are absolutely incredible and painted with exceptional skill.  He actually painted with Norman Rockwell (yes you read that right, the Norman Rockwell).  There aren’t any pictures of the paintings in this post, to see those beauties you are going to have to make the trip for yourself.

Visiting Starcke Park in Seguin, Texas

I have spent the last few weeks looking for things to do in Seguin.  To be honest, I was a bit skeptical when I began my quest, but Seguin has proven to be a little known treasure.  The best part about finding this diamond of a small town in the middle of nowhere, you guessed it, no tourists!  It seems as though this truly is the best kept secret of the Texas Hill Country.

Starke Park Golf Course

Golf course at Starcke Park

Last week, as I was leaving Polmedia Polish Pottery, I decided to stop by Starcke Park on my way home.  I saw the pictures online and I wasn’t entirely impressed by their description of the park, but I’m really grateful I stopped by for myself. When you pull into the park you are met at the entrance by the stunning golf course.  Aside form being a picturesque course to play on, this golf course is nice because you don’t have to be a member or even a resident to play here, it’s around $20 for a game.  You can go to their website for details.

The Power Plant

The old power plant.

In addition to the gorgeous golf course, there’s a phenomenal view of the old power plant.  It originally powered a cotton gin and then then the entire city until Seguin outgrew the plants capacity.  Now it is a destination restaurant with a gorgeous view.

Guadalupe River

The beautiful Guadalupe River

Parallel to the golf course is the Guadalupe River.  It is the definition of tranquility and serenity.  All along the banks are picnic tables and opportunities to sit and feel at one with the beauty of this place.  The park also offers a boat launch for kayakers.  The Kayaking trail on this river is supposed to be one of the best in the state.  If you look REALLY closely at this picture, you can see some kayakers in the water.

Kayaking the Guadalupe

Hello tiny kayakers! 🙂

Starcke Park really does make a trip to Seguin worth it (of course coming to Seguin just to visit Polmedia Polish Pottery would be worth it too, lol).  Bring the golf clubs and a picnic, Starcke Park is the perfect place to be!
