2012 Texas Wine Month – Kicks Off With Gruene Music and Wine Festival

On the heels of the busiest time of year for Texas wineries comes the celebration…Texas Wine Month!  This month, we rejoice in the growth of the industry and the great wines produced in Texas vineyards and wineries.

Dates have been set for the 2012 Gruene Music & Wine Fest, and we can’t think of a better way to kick-off Texas Wine Month than visiting Historic Gruene and enjoying live Texas and Americana music, wine and beer tastings, haute food trucks and more!

The 26th annual festival will take place Thursday, October 4 through Sunday, October 7 in Gruene Historic District. Every year, this festival brings local and guest wineries and musicians to town, featuring talented artists like Clint Black, Pat Green, Asleep at the Wheel and Stoney LaRue, just to name a few.

Attending this festival also helps support a good cause. The benefiting organization of this event since its inception in 1987 has been the United Way of Comal County.  Last year’s festival brought in over $100,000 for the United Way of Comal County and we hope you will join us in our efforts to top that amount this year.

Keep up with our blog for more updates about the 26th Annual Gruene Music & Wine Festival and other “Fall into Gruene” happenings, but go ahead and call us at 830-629-5077 or visit www.gruenehall.com to secure your ticket! We are excited to have you out!
