Meet the Makers of Texas’ Wines and Beers

redwine1On the third Thursday of each month, The Grapevine in Gruene invites visitors to meet the people who are responsible for making some of the finest wines in Texas.

Now you have the chance to meet the folks behind the growing craft beer movement in the state as well.

The dual tastings will be featured in the Grapevine, 1612 Hunter Road, New Braunfels.

Each event will be held on The Grapevine’s outdoor patio and garden and will be uniquely designed around the featured winery and brewery, providing an intimate setting for each representative to tell about how they craft their wines and make their beers. Complementary tastings will be offered of the craft beer and three of the winery’s latest releases, top-selling and hardest to find wines. You can also sample the food that is for sale.

This a great opportunity to learn direct from these craftsmen, engage with other visitors interested in wine and beer and enjoy the natural surroundings and all the other offerings of Gruene Historic District.

Each event features Ryan Waguespack’s Classical & Spanish guitar duo or French bistro music by Rumbullion, both local artists. Giveaways include wine, Grapevine merchandise and possibly gift certificates for wine tours, resort accommodations or winery merchandise.
