Flanigan's Texas Distillery and Winery
Guests of The Verandas Guest House often ask us about local attractions such as wineries and restaurants in and around Burnet, Texas. We found time to visit one of the newer places last week and were delighted! Flanigan's Distillery and Winery is located just a short 15 minute drive from here. The building was originally a lumberyard, that has been transformed to look like a hotel for the filming of the movie The Newton Boys. It has a nice courtyard for outside visits and dining.
The inside is truly spectacular, with a grand staircase and beautiful woodwork all around. The best part of the experience was at the bar, where tastings of wine and whiskey take place. Kevin, the owner, coached us on how to judge the look, smell, feel, and taste each of the wines or whiskey in the tasting. It is not just an average tasting, but an educational tutorial which makes you leave feeling like a wine / whiskey expert!
They have light fare available for pairings if you are hungry, but they also have a "Passport" for Sunday Dinners that feature foods from a different country or region each month.
We've added them to our "Wines Off 29" Trail map, and their hours are 12 to 6 pm on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday and from 12 - 7 pm on Friday and Saturday.
