Thinking of a trip to the Hill Country this Memorial Day? Consider Flat Creek Estate, a winery near Marble Falls. They are open Saturday, Sunday & Monday 11am – 5pm in the Tasting Room and 11am – 4pm in the Bistro (Reservations Required for the Bistro).

One reason you might want to go is that they just earned a 2013 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. Per the press release:

    Just heard from the folks at Pedernales Cellars that they received this award as well. Given their location in the Hill Country near Flat Creek you might want to fit in both on the same trip!
