3 The Lavender Fields at Becker Vineyards are located on a three-acre field behind the winery. Richard and Bunny Becker’s trip to Provence, France influenced the creation of the lavender field. “It was beautiful to see the lavender fields in France. The scent of lavender was everywhere and the color was extraordinary,” Richard Becker said. In June of 1998, the Beckers planted the 10,000 lavender plants. The varieties include Lavandula x intermedia grosso, Lavandula x intermedia provence, lavandula angustifolia, and Lavandula stoechas. The blooming season for the lavender is typically in May and June. The plants can be viewed year round, and guests are encouraged to experience the field with their visit to the winery. In 2006 the Beckers planted red poppies and bluebonnets in the surrounding fields. These plants will bloom April through May. This farm is just outside of Fredericksburg, Texas. Located in the Texas Hill Country
