The inaugural 2013 Lost Pines Wine Fest is Saturday, May 11, 2013 from noon – 6:00 p.m. at the Bastrop Brewhouse in Bastrop, Texas. All proceeds from this event will go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bastrop County.
The festival is partnering with the Bastrop Brewhouse to establish a great event they hope will turn into an annual event. The communities of both Bastrop and Smithville have been very supportive of the event and they are encouraging people in the area and from afar to enjoy a nice afternoon tasting good wine, music, and food.
Admission of $25 includes a wine tasting glass and tasting tickets. Additional tasting tickets will be available for $1 each. Wine by the glass or bottle will also be available for sale. Tickets are available online at www.LostPinesWineFest.com and at the entrance.
