The year is winding down and wine festivals have now for the most part ceased. But what has now picked up, especially in December, are Sip and Strolls. What is a Sip and Stroll? Simply, it’s a downtown area usually in a small historic town that opens their shops for shopping along with wineries pouring their wines in the various shops. Visit one shop to see what shopping you can do and at the same time, taste some wine from a Texas winery. Finish there and repeat at the next shop. It’s a great time to spend an evening!
Here are the Sip and Strolls we know that are happening in December.
