Wine Events for your Spring Enjoyment

The weather has been awesome in our part of Texas with wild flowers erupting across our greening environment. Spring is also a great time for Strawberries with Bernhardt Winery hosting its Fifth Annual Chocolate, Strawberry and Wine Festival this Saturday, April 9th from noon to 6 pm. Enjoy the perfumed smell of wild flowers in the rolling hillside of Bernhardt Winery. The festival features a stroll through five local chocolatier’s booths tasting an assortment of delicate white chocolates, creamy milk chocolates, along with the bold tones of dark chocolates. These chocolates pair very exquisitely with Bernhardt’s award-winning wines. For your dipping pleasure, an indulgent chocolate fountain with fresh strawberries, fruits, and other delights is available. “Train rides” through the vineyards along with vineyard tours and special Port Tastings are scheduled through the festival. The local vendor fair will spotlight locally grown produce including loads of strawberries and artisan products with vendors providing furniture, jewelry, paintings, specialty soaps/natural beauty products, cheeses, honey, Texas olive oils and more. Also, food trucks will be on hand with plenty of choices to satisfy your snack, lunch, and dinner needs! The live music, vendor fair and food trucks will be open to the public at no cost. Tickets for some parts of winery events will be required.
Tickets are still available for the Wine and Wildflower Journey in the Texas Hill Country for the month of April.
