You could easily call it the most popular wine in Houston. Davis Family’s incredible Cabernet catapulted to fame after winning over palates and votes a couple of years ago at the Houston Stock Show and Rodeo to be named the Grand Champion – the highest rated wine in the competition.
This is truly history in the making for the historic Gruene, Texas. October 2011 marks the 25th anniversary of the annual Gruene Music & Wine Fest held right in our own backyard! Located just off the banks of the Guadalupe River, this rockin’ four-day celebration is a fantastic opportunity for you and your family to come and enjoy the sights and sounds of small town Texas culture, up close and personal.
