Grapefest's theme will make visitors feel as if they’ve stepped back to an era when planes, trains and automobiles reigned supreme; vintage luggage trunks matched and stacked; and mid-century travelers dressed elegantly in colorful, high fashion wares and tailored suits. Attendees can journey along the 45th parallel, sampling wines from the Piedmont Region of Italy and the Traverse Wine Coast of Michigan before returning home to Texas favorites. Jitterbug and shimmy to live music on two different stages, nosh on traditional festival food and gourmet gastronomy, shop artisan goods, and more.
