WINE IN THE PINES OCT 23, 24, 2015 FRI. 5-9PM / SAT. 12noon - 7pm
Wine in the Pines is a wine festival held on the picturesque downtown plaza in Mt. Vernon, TX on the fourth weekend in October. We are celebrating our 6th year of Wine in the Pines which welcomes any Texas winery. We typically have 20 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 only $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 while enjoying live music. Friday evening is especially magical as we stroll among the lights to sip, savor, and shop around the square.

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.
