Wine and music go hand-in-hand, and now they're coming to Levelland.
The High Plains Wine Growers Association has announced that the first ever High Plains Winegrowers Wine & Music Festival will be held at the Mallet Event Center in Levelland, TX on June 14th & 15th.
The Wine & Music Festival will include wine tastings, a trade show, wine appreciation classes, Texas Country Music, and more.
"We've got a BBQ cook-off, we've got a trade show, we got wineries from all over the state, just got a lot of fun stuff for the whole family," said Steve Newsom, President of the High Plains Winegrowers Association.
Newsom says will have 50 vendors signed up for the event and he's hoping a couple thousand people will attend.
"If you're involved in agriculture at all, you should come out and see some of the latest and greatest equipment we have here," Newsom said.
But Newsom says the fun-filled event is for the whole family to enjoy.
"We have everything from ladies fashion accessories…there's also something for the kids, Bodyworks is bringing out a rock wall for everyone to play around and have fun with," he said.
Newsom says there will be wine education classes, ranging from beginner lessons to more advanced food pairing lessons, as well.
"Everything we do is to really bring awareness to the fact that wines made from the grapes here on the High Plains are superior."
He also says the concerts will be one of the highlights of the two-day event.
"Tomorrow night we got Mark McKinney and Charlie Robison, and if you know Texas country at all, you know Charlie Robertson. That will be a great concert."
