Enoch's Stomp

Northeast Texas

The wine industry is literally growing in east Texas; several vineyards lie within an hour's drive of Jefferson. Locals favor Enoch's Stomp for its beautiful 35-acre grounds with grassy hills great for picnicking, an orchard and two ponds. The winery holds frequent events and the restaurant is top-notch. A casual menu is available during tastings. It's 18 miles southwest via FM 2208.
