Y’all know how much I love the Texas Hill Country, mainly because of all the tastings in the area. Recently, I had an amazing time on my tasting weekend in Bee Cave. Bee Cave is located in the hill country of central Texas. This puts it a short driving distance to several wineries, distilleries, and breweries in the area. It is about 30 minutes north west of Austin, Dripping Springs and Driftwood.

I was recently invited to spend a tasting weekend in Bee Cave and absolutely loved it’s central location. I will share some tips on how to spend a tasting weekend in Bee Cave, from where to stay, what to do, and where to eat.

Where to Stay in Bee Cave

I was hosted by Sonesta Bee Cave Austin Hotel located at the Hill Country Galleria. This was my first time staying at a Sonesta and I have to say I really enjoyed it. First of all, due to the holidays, they had this beautiful Christmas tree in the lobby. Second, the service was incredible, she knew it was my first time at a Sonesta so she tried to get me a room with the best view! Third, the beds were SO comfortable, and the rooms were so spacious.

To top it off, there is a rooftop lounge called Meridian 98 on the 6th floor of the hotel with amazing views. We went up there for drinks and of course I had to try the “Buzz”, made with Dripping Springs Vodka, fresh strawberries and lemon. My friend tried the “West Pole Margarita” made with bee friendly honey and both were delicious! We really enjoyed the view sitting up here with the city lights. I can’t even imagine how beautiful it must be at sunset. Once you get hungry, there’s also a food menu with appetizers, salads, sliders, tacos and flatbreads.
