The Spring Bluebonnet Wine and Cheese Trail is a wonderful way to enjoy the beauty of native Texas wildflowers and enjoy the blooming viticulture at some of Texas best wineries. This is the namesake event for the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail. For the THREE weekends, March 29-30, April 5-6 or April 12-13, 2014, the wineries along the trail will offer ticket holders a select pairing of two wines and a specially-crafted cheese dish. When you arrive at your first winery, you will receive a 12 oz. commemorative wine glass to use and keep for all of your tastings along with a special bluebonnet wine bag. As an added bonus, each ticket holder will receive a packet of Texas Wildflower seeds at each winery while supplies last. In addition, visit ALL SEVEN member wineries and each ticket holder will receive a commemorative Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail two-stage professional wine opener. Your trail tickets are good on March 29-30, April 5-6 or April 12-13, 2014, regardless of when you purchase them. Blaze your own trail and pick where you want to start and where you want to end. You have six days over three weekends to visit all 7 wineries. The official hours for this event are Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on and Sunday, Noon to 5:00 p.m. on for each trail weekend. All wineries are open during the official trail hours. Several wineries open earlier or close later than the official hours, so please check the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail website for specific winery hours.
