Blue Mule Winery Wins at GrapeFest

From Sept. 12 through 15 in Historic Downtown Grapevine, droves of festival-goers celebrated the 33rd Annual GrapeFest, a Texas Wine Experience. Visitors from all over the state gathered to sample Texas wines in addition to unique wines from visiting winers located along the 45th parallel. Home to more than 400 wineries and 4,400 acres of vineyards producing nearly three million gallons of Texas wine each year, Texas is the fifth-largest wine producing state in the United States.

One of GrapeFest’s signature events, the People’s Choice Wine Tasting Classic, is the largest consumer-judged wine competition in the nation. Guests had the opportunity to sample 162 Texas wines from 44 Texas wineries. After sampling the wines, guests then voted on their favorites in ten categories, submitting a record number of ballots.
