FREDERICKSBURG, GILLESPIE COUNTY - A $1.2 million foundation pledge has been secured to buy three acres on Ufer St. for the construction of a $10 million wine and food center. A group is planning to construct the 30,000-sf facility that would feature a restaurant, wine-tasting room and events center, as well as instructional kitchens, a laboratory and classroom.

The foundation pledge is contingent on $6 million more being raised from other sources. Cooking classes, wine tastings and casual dining are envisioned at the center.

After a 2009 feasibility study, the facility is projected to create more than 100 jobs, generate $13.7 million in annual economic activity in the region and draw 85,000 visitors in its first year of operation.

The center is planned to be complete in 2015.
