Enchanted Rock

Enchanted Rock Wine Details

Description: The large impressions in the rock are - according to legend - footprints of an Indian Chief's spirit who angered the gods when (against tribal beliefs) he sacrificed his daughter. At night, spirit fires dance on the rock to warm phantom warriors of a forgotten tribe who made their last stand here - or, so the story is told. Enchanted Rock has been enchanted and held sacred since before written history. Enchanted Rock is the second largest batholith in the United States. The exposed portion is only a fraction of the batholith which covers about 90 square miles. A State Natural Area, the Park is located 18 miles north of Fredericksburg. The flora and fauna, geography, and view all add to the enchantment.
