Fun place, sweet wines
Aug 2021 • Couples
Went her for a tasting. Combined this one with the sister winery next door (the garage). Fat Ass is for the people that like sweet fruity wines. There was a good band on the patio this Friday. The owner was an interesting guy. Good conversation with him. The tram takes visitors to the sister winery. The Garage has better dry wines, not fruity. There’s an interesting car collection and tour included in price. Would go atmosphere and music, not the fruity wines. The other wines were better.

Love it!

They do not take reservations, so I recommend arriving within 15-30 minutes of them opening. It gets crazy packed quick! On Saturdays, they have a food truck.

Their wine is extremely sweet- Im not a fan HOWEVER, their random things are GREAT!! They have: 1) peach wine, 2) prickly pear raspberry jalapeño, 3) the 4 seltzer’s they have, 4) Sangrio blanco. They also have wine slushees for purchase at the winery. They have a tasting room downtown also.

We joined their wine club and you have the freedom to customize your quarterly shipment!!

Girls just want to have FUN!

It was a fun atmosphere and change of scenery from the traditional wine tasting! It’s an open, shaded outdoor area with a dance floor and live band. The band offered a diverse, fun mix of songs from the 50s, 70s, 90s and a line dance. The frozen Sangria was yummy, especially on a hot TX afternoon. Stop here!!!

Fun Place

Probably our least favorite wine tasting of our trip but worth the visit. Such a fun place and friendly staff. The wine was not to our liking but we bought T-shirts, how could we not....

Love their shirts
May 2021
We had a great time visiting Fat Ass Ranch and Winery. My aunts and sister came to visit from Dallas, Houston, Florida and Alabama so I wanted to show them one of the many wineries in Fredericksburg. We were on our way from Kerrville to Austin and had an hour or so available. They are not really wine drinkers so I thought Fat Ass would be a fun place. We enjoyed the $10 tasting and we all bought Fat Ass shirts. The shirts are clever and fun. We visited in the 3:00 hour on Friday and it was not too busy, which was great. I typically like dry red wine but the tastings we had were sweet wine. My non-wine drinkers liked most of them. It was a fun time.

A lot of fun

This was one of the quickest once you got through the line for your tasting. There wine is unique and fun. It was pouring rain so that put a damper but would definitely return it was a lot of fun.

Don't Waste Your Time! Rude / Poor Service! Visit ANY other winery in the area.
Apr 2021
VERY disappointing! Stopped in recently for a glass of wine and/or a tasting. The server was too busy to offer a friendly greeting and when I stopped to look at the only bottles of wine on the bar, she rudely directed me to the display in the corner and said, "This is THEIR wine (referring to another couple). The display is over there." There were no other customers inside, but the other couple; however, apparently one more person in the store wasn't worth the time or friendly attention of that server. I had already picked up some merchandise to purchase, but I put it all back. I had intended on purchasing at least a case or more of wine to bring home with me to Minnesota, but not after the rude treatment I received. Fortunately for me and my friends and family back home, there were PLENTY of other vineyards to visit in the area. That lack of a simple friendly "welcome" or "hello" proved beneficial to the neighboring wineries, as I came home with numerous cases of wine from them.

Don’t stop to buy a shirt.

We tried to buy merchandise before we tried the wine but the staff didn’t seem to care about anything but pouring wine. Other people abandoned their merchandise attempts too. 20 minutes I can’t have back and never did try the wine.

Fun, great for girls trip
Apr 2021 • Friends
Fat Ass is a fun place. This is a place you go for fun, girls trip, Bachelorette party, etc. This isn't "serious" wine, though it's good. It's mostly sweet, very sweet wine. The atmosphere is great and you're guaranteed to have a blast!

Fat or Dumb?
Mar 2021 • Friends
The name indicates a casual and easy-going atmosphere, but it is anything but easy-going! We were “herded” to wait by the doors to wait for a hostess to find us a place to sit. We had a friend in our group that wanted a frozen drink, but when we finally got to the tasting room, our friend was told she wasn’t allowed to drink her frozen drink in the tasting room. So, I guess they wanted us to separate? This made no sense, especially since they were selling the frozen drinks from the tasting room! Too many rules! We will not be back!
