Springtime in Texas brings evenings that are calm and beautiful. When paired with a Texas wine, that evening becomes spectacular. The Annual Granbury Wine Walk is your chance to sip wine, while enjoying lovely Granbury—all for a great cause. The Wine Walk has grown into one of the great wine events in Texas, and will feature more than twenty different wineries. Thousands of dollars will be raised and donated to Granbury area charities.
The Wine Walk takes place on historic Granbury Square. Fifteen wineries will have booths set up, where you can sample their offerings. You will be able to stroll the Historic Granbury Town Square with a glass of your favorite wine in hand, nibbling on your favorite foods. You can also purchase world-class art—all while listening to live music. Tickets can be purchased here, starting at $25.
By enjoying the Wine Walk, you will be supporting some great local charities and scholarship programs! The Boys and Girls Club of Hood County, Tarleton State, the Granbury Arts Alliance, and Mission Granbury are just some of the beneficiaries of the funds generated from the event. Last year, the Wine Walk raised more than $40,000 for local charities! Cheers to that!
The weekend kicks off with a VIP Sip and Savor event. The Sip and Savor event features hors d’oeuvres and live jazz music under the stars, at a gorgeous private estate overlooking Lake Granbury. Patrons will enjoy both classic and contemporary cuisine pairings with Texas wines, featuring dishes from North Texas’ most talented chefs. A VIP reservation includes a ticket to the Wine Walk on Friday and Saturday. Some of the featured chefs at the VIP event include Jon Bonnell, Megan Potts, Eric Hunter, and Kevin Martinez. Tickets for the VIP event are $125, and can be purchased here.
