About this event
Safari Wine Tours in Fredericksburg Texas. A truly unique experience. Come and visit Grapetown Vineyard and Farm in Fredericksburg Texas and get a behind the scenes look at the operations and interactions of a working farm and animal sanctuary! A driver will shuttle you via tram as you meet and feed Kangaroos and Alpacas, possibly pet a Camel, feed goats, deer and maybe even a Zebra. These animals are our family and many have been rescued. You will also enjoy great wines and scenic views, plus beer and even cocktails at Grapetown Vineyard after (or even before) your tour. We are a Winery with a Full Bar! Remember, this is a working ranch deep in the Texas Outback. Dress appropriately (no open toed shoes) and apply caution as you enter the property. Drive slowly on property and stay in your vehicle until you are parked at the Grapetown Tasting Room. Loose livestock roam the property. The tour starts at the Tasting Room of Grapetown Vineyard (8142 Old San Antonio Road, Fredericksburg Texas 78624) and is across the street from the Historic Bankersmith Dance Hall and Saloon.
*** This Wine Tour is NOT held at Safari Winery. Do NOT go to Safari Winery. As clearly printed elsewhere, this tour starts at Grapetown Vineyard at 8142 Old San Antonio Road, Fredericksburg Texas 78624 (across the street from Bankersmith Saloon) and our Safari Tram will pick you up at Grapetown Vineyard and Farm for your Safari Wine Tour and tasting. Again, do NOT go to Safari Winery.
Before your wine tasting, a private driver and Animal Sanctuary Animal Specialist will shuttle you from the Grapetown Vineyard and Farm Tasting Room via our Brand New Zebra Tram on a behind the scenes tour of our exotic wildlife and ranch operations.
You will see and possibly feed exotic animals like Kangaroos, Camels, Zebras, Alpacas, Bison and Longhorn! We also raise Boer Goats, Ponies, Nigerian Dwarf, African Pygmy and Saanen Dairy Goats, and even some Donkeys.
Please remember to tip your Tour Guide as they truly work very hard and appreciate knowing you enjoyed your tour.

Please be on time, and by that we mean EARLY for your TOUR. We cannot wait on you, as it holds up the entire group!

The Safari Tour Team will meet you at Grapetown Vineyard and Farm where the Safari Tours are held. There are absolutely no refunds under any conditions.
Much of the tour is not wheelchair accessible, unfortunately as a farm/ranch our areas are gravel or grass so parts of the garden may be missed if the wheelchair can’t cross gravel. Email us and we can work to provide you with a private tour or make arrangements in advance.
There are absolutely no refunds for any reason. If you miss the tour we will not issue a refund. Instead we will issue you passes for a future tour.
