WINE IN THE PINES    OCT 24, 25, 2014  FRI. 5-9PM SAT. 10AM-5PM
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 fourth 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 Naples 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.
