We went on the recommendation of a friend. We were pleasantly surprised by the flavors of the distillates and then we had a tour with one of the distillers. The process is so interesting. The liquors are delicious. Put this one on your list!

Singing Water Vineyards

You will enjoy a visit to this scenic Hill Country vineyard and winery located up in the hills just south of Comfort on the banks of Bruins Creek. The tasting room, a rebuilt 100 year old Hill Country barn, greets you as you drive up to the winery. Park in the shade or tie your horse up to the old recycled wagon tailgate/sign out in front - and make yourself at home. A tour and tasting in this relaxed country atmosphere is sure to lower your stress level! Bring your picnic lunch and relax on the winery porch with a glass of award-winning Singing Water wine.

What an amazing way to spend a dreary afternoon at Singing Waters Vineyard. The wine is amazing ! Comparable to Sonoma! The view of the creeks is beautiful. The ambiance in the winery is so homey. The grounds impeccable. We cannot wait to host our rehearsal dinner here for our son. Plan a trip to Comfort. You won't be disappointed !

Bending Branch Winery

Reviewed By ckassotis - Durham, North Carolina

Stopped in here on a day of visiting wineries, and was thrilled by the experience. Staff was exceptional and made you feel welcomed from the moment you stepped through the door. A nice selection of wines, including a few not on the tasting sheet. The High Plains Rosé was quite good, lots of flavor. Several of the reds were really nice as well, and we got lots of details on the wines, grapes, and region as we tasted. Excellent experience all around, and highly recommend a trip in.

Treue Der Union Monument

Reviewed By Greenvilledan - Greenville, Texas

This monument tells a tale I had never heard, having been born and raised in Texas. I am a Civil War buff, and was totally ignorant of this historically significant event. Well worth the time to come to Comfort and learn this hidden Civil War history. The monument is not breath taking, but the event is breathtaking. Well with the visit to fully understand Texas history during the Civil War.

A beautiful spot, for reflection, exercise and to reflect on a young life sacrificed to war. Do be careful, however, if you leave the trail...there are water moccasins, etc., in the area

This is a beautiful, quiet space to walk or simply sit and reflect. But be careful when approaching the water...there are snakes in the area.

Newsom Vineyards

Reviewed By Wine_of_the_Moment - Georgetown, Texas

Just about every serious Texas wine drinker is probably familiar with Newsom Vineyards. Established in 1986, the vineyard has over 100 acres of vines in the Texas High Plains, one of the premier grape growing regions. There are many wineries that source their grapes there and every time you see “Newsom Vineyards” on a label as the source of the grapes, the expectations will typically rise. Neal and Janice Newsom’s son, Nolan, has taken on the venture of opening a tasting room in Comfort along with the help of his wife, Mei. They just opened this November. The house they have renovated for the tasting room used to be the tasting room of the former Comfort Cellars, however they have preserved this piece of history by retaining that old wineries sign inside the tasting room just above the entrance. Much of the renovation inside the tasting room involved repurposing the walls and floors back to their original wood which really looks terrific for a home originally built over 100 years ago. At the tasting bar, there are currently four wines available. Since the Newsoms have a long established working relationship with many different wineries, they have worked with different winemakers to help make their initial wine releases. This helps exemplify their fruit and the character of each winemaker’s techniques. Driftwood, Bending Branch, Calais Winery, Lewis Wines, Llano Estacado, Pedernales Cellars, and Flat Creek Estate are all lending their wine making skills for the initial wine releases. The first wine to taste is a dry Orange Muscat (2015). The citrus and honeysuckle notes might throw you off at first and make you expect a sweet wine, but it actually comes across has quite smooth and refreshing as it is dry. The 2015 Pinot Grigio is herbal with a tad bit of acidity. For the reds, the 2014 LaVerne’s Merlot, has fruit sourced from some of the oldest Merlot vines on the vineyard lot (1993). The garnet colored wine has notes of plums, berries, and pepper. Letting this bottle sit for another year or two will only improve its character. The other red is Inception and is a Tempranillo (58%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (42%) blend and is a good example of well-balanced high plains wine. These are all some great wines to help get this new winery off to a wonderful launch. There are at least five more wines coming out early next year and yet more on the horizon. For the near future, you can expect a 2015 Albarino, 2015 Sangiovese, 2015 Syrah, 2015 Malbec, and 2015 Cabernet Sauvginon. This is a great addition to Comfort and a good boost to the downtown shops and restaurants. You’ll have a good time tasting and chatting with Nolan and Mei who are very eager to showcase and share their latest wines and talk about their history and vision for their new winery. There is also a back porch where you can sit, relax, and sip down a bottle of Orange Muscat on those warm winter days in Texas. Come visit them and see why Comfort is worth the trip. Cheers!
