We’re days away from the Piney Woods Wine Festival, so grab your tickets now


The Piney Woods Wine Festival is set for Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14 at Picker’s Pavilion in Downtown Lindale!

The festival will take place from 1 p.m. - 8 p.m. on Friday, and from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. on Saturday.

“It’s a two day festival, Friday and Saturday,” said Perry Wilson, President of the Piney Woods Wine Trail. “We’ll have live music, lots of good wine, plus a bunch of food, arts and crafts. So it’ll be a fun day for the whole family.”

The Piney Woods Wine Festival will feature wineries from across East Texas, all part of the Piney Woods Wine Trail. The event is free to attend, but a $15 wristband, per person per day, is required to enter the Wine Garden. Each wristband comes with a keepsake wine tasting glass and a wine tote (while supplies last). You can click here to purchase your wristbands.

“The Piney Woods Wine Trail is a group of over 20 wineries that are all small, all are family owned and here in Northeast Texas,” said Wilson. “It’s a great opportunity to taste wines from the different wineries because we’re somewhat scattered out. So ti’s the one time you can go to one place and taste wines from a wide variety of wineries all over our region.”
