Newsom Grape Day is on Fri., May 9, 2014, at the Newsom Vineyards in Plains, Texas.
Newsom Grape day is an educational event for grape growers and wine makers. It all began in 1986, on the border of Texas and New Mexico. Neal Newsom and his wife, Janice, along with his mother, Laverne, planted 5,000 Cabernet Sauvignon plants on five acres. Today, the family has 92 bearing acres which produce nearly 400 tons of grapes annually. Grape Day is a time to celebrate wine, friends, and community.
