(map) This year, the formerly three-day festival morphs into a series of smaller, more intimate gatherings to let you better get to know the participating wineries. “A Sunday Affair” took place this weekend at Driftwood Winery (for more on the winery, click here), and was a great mix of food, wine, music and fun. The next event is scheduled for September at Spicewood Vineyards. Cheers!
Eight Texas wineries share their stories and their wine with approximately 500 attendees. The limited crowd meant no long waits for tastes from Driftwood, Dry Comal Creek, Duchman, Pillar Bluff, Stone House, Flat Creek and more. Real Ale of Blanco provided beer tastings.
Driftwood is known for its spectacular views overlooking the vineyards far below. The winery has chairs, or you can set up your own. It’s a beautiful spot to enjoy a glass (or two) of wine!
Pizza from Fired Up, tacos and tamales from Sunrise Cafe and Texas Czech cuisine from The Zubik House were among the local food offerings.
The event also benefited a worthy cause: Operation Finally Home, a local group building (and donating) houses for wounded soldiers and their families. You could donate, write a message, and bid on silent auction items. See more info on that here. Below, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day team was on hand (literally!) with a hand-washing station and lots of free samples.
