Del Rio: Val Verde Winery

Val Verde Winery is the oldest continuously running winery in Texas. Italian immigrant Frank Qualia, who found Lenoir grapes flourishing in the Del Rio sun when he arrived in 1883, established the vineyards. Today, the winery is operated by third-generation vintner Thomas Qualia, whose wines — particularly the Don Luis Tawny Port — have won medals from Texas to New York. Complimentary tours and wine tastings are offered Monday through Saturday.
