Do you have a love for running and a passion for wine? The 2014 Texas Wine Series is hosting half marathon and 5K that will not only have you running in the heart of the Texas Wine Country but will also provide you the chance to enjoy amazing, award-winning wine and delectable local food.
Mark your calendars for April 27, 2014 as Becker Vineyards in Stonewall, TX hosts this fantastic event. If you have never visited the Texas Hill Country, you are in for a treat! Winding roads, wooded canyons, spring-fed rivers, fields of bluebonnets and visually stunning wineries dotting the road – each with their own unique style and flavor. On race day, the half marathon will take you through beautiful scenery and four breathtaking vineyards. An exclusive Food & Wine Event will follow as you are treated to wines from around our region and tasty dishes from our finest local restaurants. Beginners and experienced runners are also invited to try the shorter 5K, which also takes you through some of Texas’ best wine regions. Finally, the best way to end a day like this is to put up your feet and relax in one of the elegant and cozy bed and breakfasts of The All Seasons Collection in Fredericksburg, TX.
