Winnsboro is centrally located in the East Texas wine country. This makes Oaklea Mansion a fantastic place to stay while you explore the vineyards, pick grapes or taste the incredible variety of wines homegrown in the area.
Winnsboro and the surrounding areas are home to not less than seven of these vineyards. Some vineyards are" pick your own" style, while others have wines to taste while you are there. Many have both. Some wineries carry local wines from these vineyards, and I will also include them on the map.
If you are coming from Dallas via Interstate 30, you can stop at Phinesse Farms Winery. They have their own vineyard, a family-owned operation In Sulphur Springs. Its 35 acres of Muscadine grapes, Berries, and fruit trees. They also have a winery downtown that hosts their delicious wines.
