Sample the Blends at Wineries around Richmond

Relax With a Glass of Vino at Richmond Wineries

In ancient Greek mythology, wine was often called "the gods' nectar." It dates back to about 4000 BCE and maybe even before the Middle East. Today, winemakers apply time-honored methods for producing the most delicious varieties. To sample some wine and find new favorites, head to wineries near our Richmond apartments. They include:

Braman Winery

The family behind Braman Winery is as Texan as it gets. The winery combines their hardworking ancestry roots as Irish immigrants and local tenacity. This winemaker takes the best Texas grapes and ages them in French Oak barrels. What's more, they dub themselves Texas' first combination winery and brewery.

Head to the spacious taproom and sample treats like the Sweet Red, Blanc DuBois, Black Spanish Rose, or Riesling, depending on what's available. You can bring in outside food to enjoy with your wine for bites. There are also food trucks, live entertainment, and fun trivia nights.

Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery & Kitchen

Since 1977, Messina Hof Winery has produced exceptional wines. Back then, it was just the fourth winery in all of Texas. Paul Vincent and Merrill Bonarrigo built the company to statewide and international acclaim.

Today when you visit the tasting room and restaurant, enjoy delicious pairings as you wine and dine. Sip fun bubbly Peach Moscato or classic varieties like the rich red Bonarrigo Heritage Reserve. Order shareable appetizers like locally sourced baked goat cheese or entrees like the Land & Sea Burger.

Waters Edge Winery & Bistro

The Waters Edge Winery & Bistro crafts eco-conscious, international wines right here at home. The selection varies when you stop at the winery, so come with an open mind. The flight options bring three selected-for-you wines to enjoy. Try the Social Distance. It's a toasty, oaky white with buttery tones and a customer favorite. Meal options include savory charcuterie boards, flatbreads, and bistro entrees.
