Surprisingly, Texas is the fifth largest wine-producing state in the nation, and Austin County is home to several growing vineyards. Our fertile soil has been found to be very favorable in growing grapes as well as regular crops. And Texas wine growers are finding Cat Spring a great place to hold annual meetings concerning Texas wines. Visit Yellow Brick Road Winery that offers a wide variety of Texas wines as well as their own in a relaxing setting, owned by a true wine¬†aficionado and an¬†Academy Award-winning composer, and Cast Iron Winery just on the other side of Sealy. If wine isn’t your thing, try the taproom of Huff Brewing Company, who crafts beers with a respectful nod toward tradition, yet with a worthy amount of creativity & adventure.
