WINE IN THE PINES    OCT 23, 24, 2015  FRI. 5-9PM SAT. 11AM-6PM
Wine in the Pines is a wine festival held on the picturesque downtown plaza in Mt. Vernon, TX on the fourth weekend in October.  This event is open to any Texas winery.  This will be the fifth year for Wine in the Pines.  We typically have 18 wineries attending from as far south as Houston, as far north as Paris, as far east as Texarkana and as far west as Wichita Falls.  Admission is $5 per person and tastings are $1 each.  Wine is available by the tasting, the glass, or the bottle.  Visit the art, crafts and food vendors.  Enjoy the live entertainment.  Friday evening is especially fun as we stroll among the lights to sip, savor, shop and walk around the square.

​Adam Grigsby has been a native of Mt. Vernon for the past 20 years, and began playing guitar about the age of 15.  He spent a few months taking lessons from Andrew Daniel, a virtuoso of classical guitar and a professor of music at Northeast Texas Community College, and learned to play the popular tunes at that time.  He enjoys playing a wide variety of styles on guitar from country, bluegrass, rock, metal, blues, funk, jazz, classical, folk and r&b.  He is currently the guitarist for Jordan Kingston and the Drifters, a red dirt/Texas country band out of Mt. Pleasant.

Enola Gay Mathews sings jazz and is accompanied by guitar player Kurt Bittner. Enola Gay is currently performing with the Reilly Springs Jamboree. She performed at a Franklin County Historical Association event at the Depot in late 2012. She is a disc jockey at KSST in Sulphur Springs.  

Mathew Tuttle started his musical career as lead guitarist/singer in various rock bands in the upper Midwest, performing in clubs throughout Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.  Eventually Mathew found his way to Austin, Texas. As a solo artist he performed at many of the coffee shops found in Austin, Round Rock and Georgetown, as well as private parties and wedding ceremonies. He also joined "The Blue Diamonds," an eight-piece band that covered everything from '60s Motown to the jazzy tunes of Steely Dan.  In 2013 Mathew moved from Austin to the Piney Woods of East Texas, and continues performing as a solo artist. ​

Keith Rea (pronounced “Ray”) is a singer/songwriter from Houston whose music will remind you of Jim Croce, Neil Young, and James Taylor. His lyrics tell the stories of people, places and situations that feel familiar. 

Gabe Clayton plays the hammered dulcimer and has performed at many Mt. Vernon wine festivals and farmers markets. He lives in Mineola. He is fun to watch and develops a good relationship with the audience.
