Cellar Rat Wine Tour Guides


Led by Experience

All of our tours are led by Wine Guides who have experience in the actual wine industry. We are the only tour company with this experience and qualifications.

Anyone can hold the door for you, but we can open doors to the best the Texas Hill Country has to offer.

Our passenger vans create a comfortable environment with easy access in and out at each stop.

For the transportation portion of our tours, we have Ford Transit Passenger vans in our fleet. Onboard we provide bottled water, phone chargers, umbrellas, bluetooth for music control and cargo space for purchases. During hotter months, we keep the vans running to ensure a cool ride and during the cooler times, we’ll keep them warm.
