Texas Hill Country Wineries Reviews (part 1)
Blue Lotus Winery
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.
Wine & Mead, A Family Business
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.
Weddings, Parties, & Special Events
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.
