You gotta hand it to Fall Creek; they’re not content just to produce one of Texas’s better portfolios of wines. For the rest of June, on Saturday, they are offering afternoons of wine tasting, lunch and music on “the mist-cooled patio” of the winery on LakeBuchanan near Tow. For the under-age element, there’s also a new kids’ area with playhouse, bocce court and “other yard games.” Lunch is simple: sandwiches, pasta salad and a cookie—with wine tasting for adults. From 11-2, there’s also a free sampling of their Rosé Ritas. (They often put on programs with more ambitious food, it should be noted.) Prices are $15 for adults, $10 for children, and reservations should be made for this outing in the atmospheric Hill Country by calling the winery at 325-3739-5361.
Other upcoming events are Burgers and Blues on July 3 and the annual grape stomp on August 21 and 28. Get down or get purple. Or both. For more information log on to www.fcv.com.
