Expected Much More
Nov 2021
This is absolutely a beautiful destination with a wonderful view, but our experience was quite deceiving. When we arrived, we were greeted by an exceptional hostess originally from South Africa. Unfortunately, she and our tasting expert Harvey were the highlights of our experience. We were asked if we were members, which meant come in now and enjoy. Since we are not, and won't be, we were told it would be another hour of waiting for no reason before we could sample. After the unneccessary wait, we were then informed that we could sample at a high $35 but could not purchase any since we were not members. Are you kidding? If we had been informed of this when we arrived, we would have left. After vigorous complaining to the sweet lady from South Africa, an exception to their ridiculous rule was extended. So, I cancelled mine and allowed my wife to partake and enjoy in the wonderful sparkling wine and delicious paired samplings, after which we purchased a bottle of her favorite. As I said earlier, Harvey was exceptional in his tutorials about each selection.

Fun tasting experience

What a beautiful tasting room and fun experience. I’m not a fan of sparkling wines, but Harvey definitely changed my mind with his knowledge and enthusiasm. We purchased several bottles and even became a member. Thank you Harvey for a great tasting experience.

Do not go to Heath.
Nov 2021 • Couples
We will not be back and will not ever purchase wine from Heath…ever. This breaks my heart because I LOVE sparkling wine and was ready to join the wine club and purchase all of the wine.

Our tasting group of three couples was made up of a white couple, Hubs and I, and another interaccial couple. No sooner than we started our tasting Chuck, the employee that took us through the tasting,turned to the white couple and says ”Let’s go Brandon, right?”. This is far-right speak for “F*ck, Joe Biden”. Why would Chuck feel the need to say that during our tasting?! What is the purpose of saying that AND directing that comment to the white couple. That was a dog whistle to let us know we were not welcome there.

We ran into the other interaccial couple on the way out and they asked if we had heard what Chuck said, expressing that they had wanted to leave as soon as they heard it.

If you’re operating an establishment that is open to the general public, it’s your responsibility to make everyone feel comfortable, NOT go out of your way to make sure your guests feel uncomfortable after we have made a reservation and paid for a tasting.

Do not go to Heath Sparkling Wines.

Fantastic Experience
Nov 2021 • Friends
My son and I went for a sparkling wine tasting and had a fabulous time with our tasting ambassador, Kathy Myers. We were lucky enough to have a private tasting and really learned a lot! The good pairings they had with the wine were delicious and really brought out the taste of the wine. I would highly recommend Heath Sparkling Wine tastings and wines!

Excellent sparkling wines
Nov 2021
This was one of the best wine tastings we have experienced. We were greeted warmly by John when we arrived, and Kathy provided a friendly, informative tasting of four sparkling wines. Each wine was accompanied by a different, paired small bite that enhanced the experience. We are generally against winery memberships, but we were eager to sign up here. Do not miss this specialized wine tasting!

Worst tasting in Fredericksburg
Oct 2021 • Friends
The staff is extremely rude. Throughout our entire experience at Heath we were treated poorly, spoken down to, and it was not an enjoyable experience. The grounds are not relaxing or beautiful as a chain link fence encircled it. Over all I’d never go back or recommend Heath to anyone I liked.

We are sorry to hear that you felt the staff was rude. The fencing surrounding the construction project is temporary and will be removed within the next few weeks once the patio is complete.

Pretentious. Mass Confusion. Unappreciative of their customers.
Oct 2021 • Friends
Our party of 3 visited here recently. Two of us are members, and I am sad to say that that they really pulled a bait and switch. Three people told us 3 different things when we came in. We wanted to purchase a bottle of sparkling wine to enjoy on the patio. Nope. So we inquired about the member free glass of sparkling. Nope- we were told this isn’t part of the membership. The best they could do Is charge us over $13 a glass. What? They can charge by the glass, but not let us buy a bottle? They sent us over to Grape Creek, their sister property, where our family had a poor experience before. We ended up obliging just to buy a bottle of bubbly and enjoy on the patio. Same crummy experience. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Membership will be canceled post haste. Too many other great choices in FBG area. They seem too busy trying to establish a high end showy gallery instead of focusing on their customers and service.

At this time we do not offer the option to purchase an open bottle on the veranda. Members may purchase wine by the glass or may enjoy a complimentary glass of still wine next door on the Grape Creek Wine Club patio. We apologize for any confusion.

Tasting with Sheri!
Oct 2021
This place is so, so good. Beautiful ambiance and amazing wine. Very well done. Sheri in the tasting room was fantastic, friendly, and very knowledgeable. If you like sparkling wines at all, this is a must visit.

Harvey took us on a journey of Sparkling wines. Very knowledgeable, funny, and a true gentleman. The wine and food paring was phenomenal! It’s a must visit while in the Texas Wine country.
