Celebrate wine and the golden age of travel at the 33rd Annual GrapeFest – A Texas Wine Experience, presented by Bank of the West, September 12, 13, 14 and 15. The festival’s theme is going to make you feel as if you’ve stepped back to an era when “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” reigned supreme; vintage luggage trunks matched and stacked; and mid-century travelers dressed elegantly in colorful, high fashion wares and tailored suits. Attendees can journey along the 45th parallel, sampling wines from the Piedmont Region of Italy and the Traverse Wine Coast of Michigan before returning home to Texas favorites. Jitterbug and shimmy to live music on two different stages; nosh on traditional festival food and gourmet gastronomy; shop artisan goods; and so much more! Get your tickets now to experience these exciting wines, many of which are not normally available in Texas.
