1.    Caprock Winery

If you haven’t made it out to Caprock Winery, you are really missing out! It is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Lubbock. They have many events throughout the year including comedy nights, girls’ night out, live music, and holiday-themed evenings. If you want to keep it simple, head out to the tasting room Thursday-Saturday for a $10 wine tasting. If it is a nice day, they have a nice patio that faces the vineyards. It is a great place to take a date or to hang out with friends. Caprock also has a variety of wine accessories for purchase along with their amazing wines! Check out their Facebook Page. 

2.    McPherson Cellars

Enjoy this awesome winery in downtown Lubbock. The outside sitting area is so unique and a great place to visit with friends over a glass (or bottle!) of wine. It is colorful with couches, metal, art, and a nice water feature. They have special events throughout the year or you can just come out for a $5 wine tasting. Make sure to follow them on Facebook for the latest information on live music and events. Also, if you make it out to the First Friday Art Trail, McPherson will be open with wine, food trucks, art, and sometimes a mini peddler show. They have a variety of award winning wines that you do not want to miss out on!

3.    La Diosa Cellars

This has been mentioned on many lists and articles before and all for good reason. La Diosa has beautiful decor and a relaxing atmosphere. The interior is Spanish themed with paintings, fountains, wall hangings, and other neat décor. Enjoy tapas, salads, cheese platters, desserts and a variety of wine. The live music is great and provides an intimate setting. It is a great place for a date or just hanging out with friends. It is a must go to place for any visitors and all of you wonderful local folks. Follow their Facebook page to keep up with the live music schedule and drink specials.

What is there to say about The Funky Door besides it is the ideal wine and dine spot in Lubbock. Self-dispensing wines, fondue, desserts, live music, unique and delicious foods, full bar, great atmosphere, and more. Make it an upscale night out for special occasions and date nights.

    Love the local wine scene

    Do you know if Pheasant Ridge is planning on doing daily tastings soon?

    I agree with all of your choices but include Llano Estacado for tasting wine and atmosphere. However, The Funky Door should be number one choice hands down. Their new international eight course meal with wine pairings is outstanding although pricey.
