Bell Mountain Winery - Located on the slopes of Bell Mountain and first identified on the U.S. Geological map of 1885. In 1986, the area was designated as the first winegrowing area in Texas by our Federal government. The Vineyards are set on sandy-loam soils replete with rich minerals and blessed with a moderate climate due to elevation, insuring superior fruit development, thus wines of distinctive character.
Enchanted Rock State Natural Area In the Texas Hill Country, a massive granite dome rises 325 feet above the surrounding terrain. Called Enchanted Rock by early settlers, this awe-inspiring formation is the tip of the second largest batholith in the United States. Long before European settlers came to the area, Native Americans believed the domes of Enchanted Rock were inhabited by spirits. On cool nights, as the rock contracts due the dropping temperature, eerie, creaking noises can be heard. These noises coupled with the majestic visual impact of this vast exposed mass of pink granite make it easy to imagine the source of the tales and legends surrounding this unique area. www.tpwd.state.tx.us/park/enchantd/
