Life On The Texas Hill Country Wine Trail at Havenwood

With Havenwood’s ideal location along the Texas Hill Country Wine Trail in New Braunfels, idyllic vineyards and wineries are right in the neighborhood’s backyard, with more only a short drive away. Wine lovers experience all the benefits of vineyard living, including the beauty for which the Hill Country is known and the relaxed, welcoming lifestyle it promotes.

Texas is the fifth largest wine producing state in the country and is most known for its own wine grape, the Blanc Du Bois. The Texas Hill Country Wine Trail draws countless visitors every year and features 32 wineries, vineyards and cellars that host weekend events including live music, art shows and classes on the art of wine tasting.

Plan a weekend or day trip to experience each winery’s own take on a taste of Texas. For tastings right around the community visit Dry Comal Creek Vineyards, Sister Creek Vineyards and Bending Branch Winery or plan your own wine trail day trip with the trail’s official list of suggested routes.

Investing in Land: Summer Value of a Second Home in New Braunfels

Many people choose to buy land as an investment for retirement years down the road, but building early can bring significant advantages in the meantime.

More so than any other time of year, summer instills in many the need to get away. Building a second home provides just the escape for a weekend away to take advantage of New Braunfels’ local, seasonal activities and the Havenwood at Hunter’s Crossing residential community amenities.

Available amenities at SouthStar’s Havenwood include a swimming complex, private park with walking trails and basketball, tennis and volleyball courts. The community’s Family Reunion Pavilion is aptly named for its space for friends and family gatherings. Local attractions also provide perfect summer activities for all ages, like New Braunfels’ Schlitterbahn and the nearby city of Gruene. Havenwood is located right off the Texas Wine Trail, with great Texas wines just a short drive away.

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), second-home sales account for around 4 out of 10 residential transactions. Nearly half of those buyers intend to use their newly acquired land to build a home for vacation purposes.

Benefits to owning a vacation home include the freedom to visit at a moment’s notice at an unlimited frequency, all while experiencing a personalized level of comfort stemming from the ability to leave belongings that minimize future packing. These years also provide an opportunity to settle into and tailor your new home to best prepare for the approaching retirement years.

Go Greune This St. Patrick’s Day

This Saturday, enjoy a Texas hill-country-style St. Patrick’s Day. Make it out to Gruene Hall, Texas’ oldest dance hall, for some drinks, dancing and live music. The Damn Quails will be performing from 1 – 5 p.m. and Roger Creager takes the stage at 9 p.m.


Havenwood’s First Annual Tour, Taste & Tunes Event a Success

Saturday, April 18 brought a cool breeze and warm sunshine to Havenwood, bringing families from all over to enjoy the sights and sounds of the local community. Guests were greeted at the outdoor pavilion with the bluesy-rock sounds of the Meagan Tubb and Shady People band, where they enjoyed delicious Texas-style barbecue and allowed their children to play at the nearby playground. The highlight of the day was certainly the trolley ride through the neighboring community of Gruene, where guests saw sites both popular and historic, and then returned to the community to explore the winding roads and majestic hills at Havenwood. We can’t wait to host our next Tour, Taste & Tunes to show the local community what the Texas Hill Country is all about!
