In addition to the six homes, the historic Winters-Wimberley Housewill be open to visitors. A gift shop, homemade baked goods, a free wine tasting, and a delicious lunch by the Leaning Pear will be available. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at a cost of $12.00 per person.

Tickets for the tour are $20.00 and may be purchased beginning October 24 and on both tour days at the Wimberley Visitors' Center at 14090 Ranch Road 12 in Wimberley.
