BBQ and Wine Touring Event, Belton and Valley Mills, TX, Saturday, July
Join us for a Texas BBQ and wine-tasting tour. From Fort Worth, we will drive to Belton on scenic roads less traveled. Our first destination will be Miller's Smokehouse for lunch. Texas Monthly says this is one of the best BBQ joints in the world (but surely they mean Texas?) They do not take reservations, so we need to have an early start so we can arrive before they open for lunch and line up. After lunch, we will proceed to the beautiful Valley Mills Vineyard for wine tasting. This tasting is an optional activity - you may proceed home after lunch. The winery will require you to navigate a steep flight of stairs - please keep that in mind if you opt to join us for the wine-tasting. Please note that the drive will be a bit longer than our usual day trips, hence the early start, but we think it'll be worth it. Pay for your own lunch and wine tasting ($20 for a flight of 4 wines.)
Note: While Covid infections appear to be declining, we are not out of the woods yet. We will be applying the Covid precautions below as we have done in the past.
