Planning a trip out to the Hill Country? Reserve a William Chris Vineyards picnic lunch prepared by our culinary team to enjoy outdoors on our lawn where we have wine available for purchase and ample seating options. Each house-made lunch includes a gourmet sandwich, seasonal salad, fresh fruit, Rambler sparkling waters, and a little something sweet.
NOTE: Orders for picnic lunches must be placed at least 24 hours in advance of pick-up time. When reserving your pack, please select the day you wish to enjoy your picnic at Hye Estate.
For day-of food options, visit W.C. Provisions located on the property in the farmhouse. There you will find a variety of grab-n'go food options!
Reasons You’ll Love This Experience:
The moment you pull off Highway 290 onto the William Chris grounds, you can't help but be in awe of the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country. From the simple charm of our original farmhouse to the modern tasting room surrounded by an active vineyard - all elements of our property are beautifully suited to their terroir and expressive of our reverence for the past and vision for the future.
Orders for picnic lunches must be placed at least 1 hour in advance of pick-up time. Sandwich options are Meat, Vegetarian, or Gluten-Free: (no bread, substitute GF chips for pasta salad). You will have the chance to make your selections when we contact you via email to confirm your order. Picnic Packs are $20 per person, and you are more than welcome to consume the picnic on the property, where we have wine available for purchase by the glass and bottle!
