October is Texas Wine Month so it is the perfect time for a wine festival! Ours is October 19th and it revolves around the family fun of grape stomping. Historically, rather than using a wine press or other mechanized method, grapes were crushed by foot in vats to release their juices and begin fermentation. Luckily all our grapes that are to be made into wine have already gone into the tanks for fermentation, but we do keep some for the festival stomping - more of a tradition and back to the earth thing than a necessary part of the process. People arrive at the stomping vat with different perceptions from timid interest to enthusiastic abandon. But you definitely need to experience it at least once - get back to nature, squish it around, enjoy!
We believe in enjoying time with family and friends to fullest and engaging all our senses. Bushman's is the perfect place to create joyful memories where you can hear great music from state-of-the-art sound system (the best in East Texas) and relax in big cushioned comfy chairs.
Tables are big enough for your whole party. There is even plenty of room to dance! It is a place to bring friends and make new ones, where everyone gets a chance to engage in the universal language that is music!
There is a nice variety of food and beverages ranging from wine and cheese to Shiner Bock paired with King Ranch chicken. Come be our guest and entertain all your senses!
Collin Raye will be here this Friday!
