Coming up this Saturday, April 26, is the 5th Annual Hill Country Wine and Music Festival at Wildseed Farms, which plans to spotlight some of the state’s best “libations and vibrations.”
The Almost Patsy Cline Band will be among the live performers entertaining on the outdoor stage as visitors sample products from at least a dozen different wineries all gathered for the fest at Wildseed Farms, located along U.S. Highway 290 (about seven miles east of Fredericksburg.)
Tasting and dancing will start at 11 a.m. and last until 7 p.m. Admission price is $25 per person, plus tax, and includes a souvenir wine glass and seven wine tasting tickets. (Teenager passes are $10 each.)
