Texans love a good festival, and especially one that might offer a little buzz! This might be a good idea for a girls' weekend away, or a day-long date. In 10 days, we’ll have the chance to see what the fuss is all about over East Texas wines, and do a little shopping and sampling, too.

The Pineywoods Wine Festival is set for May 19, and if you go, you’ll not only be able to sample some East Texas wines, you’ll also get some pointers on putting together a road trip to all of the best East Texas wineries. How fun would that be?

You might need a designated driver if you’re going to make an entire road trip of the wine sampling. But it would be a great way to see how Texans get creative with grapes.

The Pineywoods Wine Festival is right off Interstate 30 in Mount Vernon, and they’ll be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. with vendors on hand like Scentsy, The Spicewood Food Company, and Silverleaf Resorts – Texas Travel and Tyler indoor park.

The Festival says The Piney Woods Wine Trail is the second largest in Texas and growing.

We’re happy to provide ideas for road trips, dates, and time away from the routine. Have fun!
