We had a lovely time staying at Tara Winery. We spent a relaxing weekend hiking, star gazing, oh, and drinking wine.

There are several dogs on the property that roam free. I am glad I knew this ahead of time and chose not to bring my dog aggressive dog. This is just something to be aware if if you travel with your dogs like we normaly do. Their dogs are not aggressive, just my idiot dog when he encounters other dogs.

The property is spacious with lots of camp areas to chose from. This is also a Harvest Host site so the big campers were relagated to a more limited area than the tent campers. There is power available for a price, but water and a restroom is available in your fee.

I would stay here again. Thanks!

WARNING: DISCRIMINATORY WINERY
To start off, my group arrived at the winery to check In for the campsite around 2:45. We sat at a table for over 45 minutes also called the owner of the hipcamp twice and he did not answer the phone call either time. I tried to leave a voicemail but his voicemail box was full. We finally got tired out waiting to check in so after that 45 minutes we left.
After settling down our group decides to go back up to winery. This is where it really goes downhill fast. We sit down for about 10 minutes and no one comes to greet us. I walk in to the building where the hostess is and politely let her know that we had just sat down and wasn’t sure if she had seen us. She notified me that they were printing off more menus for us and she would be there shortly. Once she arrived to the table about 20 minutes after that conversation, she lets our table know that the winery is not ready for us yet and that they serve a different style then most restaurants. That they like to serve “slow and steady” so it might take a long time for them to be ready for our table. Mind you there were only 4 other tables there and each table only had three-five people and the staff couldn’t even bring us menus! I was very shocked but I tell her okay and ask for menus once again. She tells me she will bring them shortly.
Finally after another 30 minutes goes by, I look online at the menu and tell her to just bring me a bottle of the blueberry blanc. Again she tells me it may take a while but I agree and let her know I want it anyways. No more than one minute after I asked for my bottle, the table next to me asks for the SAME bottle of wine. They receive their bottle in under two minutes. Way BEFORE us! Even though we had asked her for the bottle first. At last, we realized some type of discrimination was happening against us.
My friend in our group approached our waitress Carly with a question. “What style of serving do you guys use because if I understood that, maybe I could understand why that table right next to us got the bottle of wine before us even though we had asked first.” The waitress Carly snapped back at her and told her that her question “was only prolonging the process”. How RUDE! We were all shocked about how rude she was.
Over an hour goes by since we sat down and we finally get our first bottle of wine. We still don’t have menus but started noticing that the 3 tables that arrived after us had all been greeted within 5 minutes; MUCH quicker then we had been greeted! They even got menus (which we still did not have).
Again Carly comes by and I ask her for charcuterie board (that I had to look online at the menu for) and another bottle of the same wine; I then asked her if I could book a reservation for a wine tour. I had messaged the owner of the hipcamp several days beforehand and after three day’s of asking, he finally advised me to talk to Terri about booking a tour. Again the owner was no help and didn’t seem to care about us wanting a tour or our satisfaction with our camping experience. Anyways, Carly lets me know that she will send Terri over to schedule it but that they weren’t doing anymore tours for Saturday and that they would be available on Sunday. Once again, thirty minutes rolls by and Terri never shows up. Once again, I completely get ignored about my inquiry.
At this point I’m so frustrated with the service, the discrimination, the bad attitude, and the lack of help, that we ask to cancel our order so we can just leave.
The only difference between our table and the rest was that we were the only people of color in the entire place. I hate to even imagine that happening in this day and age but I witnessed it happen to my friends in my group.
We talked to the campers next to us about their experience at the winery and they said it was completely different and that they got served right away.
Never in my life would I imagine going to a restaurant, let alone a winery, and being the last served, getting no menus, being disrespected by our waitress, and having every other table served ahead of us. To watch my friend cry at night because the the waitress was so obviously rude and discriminatory, was heartbreaking to witness. I will NEVER spend another dime at this discriminatory place and I advise everyone else who reads this to do the same.

Everyone was very nice. The sunset was beautiful. The casita had AC and I watched a lightning storm roll through. The farm was lovely to walk around. The moon was so bright I could see everything when I walked back from the common room.

Sip on your morning coffee while walking among the vines, have dinner at the on site restaurant or cozy up next to one of the fire pits.

The really amazing part of this property is the historic home that now operates as an BnB. The campsite back behind the home and into the woods--AWD recommend when wet, but not necessary.

The campsites are secluded and a work in progress. The host is working to get water and electricity out to the sites but I would recommend bringing your own water just in case.

There are dogs on the property, so I would caution that if you are afraid of dogs this is NOT the camp for you. They bark aggressively but never seemed physically aggressive (although one did run off with my shoe in the middle of the night!).

I visited in the winter time, but I can only imagine how gorgeous and green the property is in the summer!

The onsite restaurant and bar.We were able to take a peek at the barrels during our stay. So cool!wineryThe road leading towards the campsite.

We had a great time at Tara Winery over Labor Day weekend. Beautiful East Texas sunsets, plus great wine & the hosts came by each day to check in and see if we needed anything. We were the only campers over the weekend, so we had the place to ourselves.
