Wine, Live Music Take Center Stage at Weekend La Viña Spring Wine Fest
Wine and live music will take center stage at La Viña Winery this weekend.
The El Paso-area winery is celebrating the mostly awesome weather this time of the year offers with the aptly-named Spring Wine Festival.
This Saturday, April 30, and Sunday, May 1, you'll be able to taste the fruits of their labor -- literally and figuratively. Reward yourself after a long work week with a hard-earned glass or three of what the fancy people call vino at the La Viña Spring Wine Festival.
Sip and Swirl
Soak in the sun and spend the day at the oldest winemaker in New Mexico sipping, swilling, and tasting over 20 of the vineyard's most popular wines.
The Jesus Juice event, which will run from noon to 7 p.m. both days, will also feature food and crafts vendors, and live music from El Paso-area jazz and blues bands.
Adult admission to the festival is $20 and includes a souvenir glass and a choice of 6 tastes or a full glass, according to the event post. The not-legally-allowed-to-drink 12-20 years of age crowd pay $10, and guests 11 and under are admitted free of charge.
