Bell Springs Winery Serves Austin Pride by the Glassful
published on September 24, 2011
Nestled beside acres of lush oak and cedar trees, Bell Springs Winery in Dripping Springs is a short jaunt just minutes from Austin, Texas. Owners Nate and Angie Pruitt have created a winery that perfectly pairs Texas "friendly" and modern casual, hand-crafting a variety of unique, easy-drinking wines, from a fruity and light Malvasia Bianca to a bold and rich Cabernet Franc. The winery’s popular Drippin’ Sweet (White) and Drippin’ Sweet (Red) hit the right notes for Texas barbeques, and being a stone’s throw from the Live Music Capital of the World sets the stage for live music, cook-outs, and perfectly paired wines.
Bell Springs Winery takes full advantage of the wealth of talent in the area with terrific live music almost every weekend. The winery’s “Calendar of Events” page lets fans know about all upcoming shows. Nate Pruitt, co-owner and winemaker says, “Being close to Austin and its welcoming attitude, we want young and old to enjoy what we have created. The winery and tasting room offer great views of the hundreds of well-groomed oak and cedar trees. You can roam around the grounds or relax the afternoon away on our covered deck or stone patio. We encourage you to bring a picnic along, and if your dogs are well behaved and get along with people and other dogs, go ahead and bring them as well!”
The winery features a cool and comfortable tasting room where visitors can sample a luscious, tropical Chardonnay, a jammy Nebbiolo, and much more. The tasting room’s attached breezy, wood-planked patio invites relaxing with glasses or bottles of wine, available for purchase at the winery. The patio regularly plays host to live music and the groomed winery grounds provide a picture-perfect location for picnics and games.
Bell Springs Winery is located at 3700 Bell Springs Road in Dripping Springs. The tasting room is open Thursdays from noon to 5:00pm, Fridays from noon to 6:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.
