My husband, Chuck, and I first came to the Texas Hill Country in the early 1980s. Back then, only a few wineries existed. The town of Fredericksburg was quaint with small family-owned shops and restaurants. It pretty much rolled up the streets at six o’clock. That was fine with us because we had discovered what many other folks had, that the real draw to the area known as the Texas Hill Country is the land. Our greatest pleasure was driving through the hills and taking in the extraordinary scenery of one of the most unique geographical and topological areas in the world.
