Saturday evening was spent in Harleton, a little east Texas town (population 2,395) at Enoch’s Stomp Winery and Vineyard. A recommendation from a friend, Enoch’s is an adorable hidden gem in the middle of the 20-winery Piney Woods Wine Trail.
In the last decade or so, Texas wineries have boomed. The beautiful wine trails in the Texas Hill Country (located in the south and central parts of the state) have been dubbed the “next Napa,” but this was my first time visiting any of the wineries in the east.
Enoch’s was a delightful choice for a relaxing Saturday. Tyler and I hopped in the car with our friends, Zach and Jessie, and hit the road. The drive took less than an hour each way and the weather was our first cool taste of fall.
The winery was split between the Tasting Room and “pub fare” restaurant and a more formal restaurant (pictured above) in a lodge cabin.
We opted to sit outside and try their dry wine flights. We agreed that the Blanc Du Bots Off-Dry and Norton were our favorites!
Here we are, happy with our life decisions for the day.
We moved inside when the live music started. Enoch offers live music every Friday and Saturday night starting at 6:30 pm. Wine and live music makes for one happy girl!
…oh, and cheese. Wine, music, and cheese makes for one happy girl! So we ordered a meat and cheese plate, crab cakes, and a couple of pizzas for the table. Everything was delicious.
Enoch was a wonderful experience and would be highly recommended. It was a great day trip, the atmosphere was peaceful, our surroundings were beautiful, and I’m now looking forward to checking out the other wineries on this trail!
