Downtown Brenham is the place to come for fun in the new year!   What Better way to kick it  than to experience the excitement and fun of an afternoon and evening of wine tasting in quaint stores around Brenham’s historic downtown district!   It is called the Uptown Swirl (wine walk) and this Brenham annual event is coming up!!!!

It was loads of fun last year and is sure to be even better this year. I was able to procure some really fantastic champagne, a couple of reds and a white that I thought were extraordinary!  This is the way to sample wine without all the expense of buying the bottle until you find the one or more that perfectly suits your palate!

Mark your calendars for January 18, 2014 (3-7 P.M.), book your room and purchase your ticket in advance!   The Uptown Swirl this year includes 27 shops offering  different wines to taste.  That’s a lot of tasting and shopping!  Part of the fun (beside tasting some really great wine) is getting to see all the great wares offered in each shop and looking for that special keepsake to take home with you.  A preview of some of the stops for tasting and shopping with a really cool vibe that we recommend you not miss are Nellies, Book Nook, Tres Chic, Antique Gypsy, Brenham Heritage Museum, American Man Cave,  and Hermanns Furniture.   As you taste while perusing each stores wares, you can mark on your map the wines you like most and start your list of those you want to purchase and take home with you to enjoy with friends and family.  To make it really simple so you don’t lug those bottles from location to location, all wines are available for purchase at  a central location that makes it effortless!

January 18, 2014, from 3-7pm

Beautifully boxed, keepsake wine glasses are available at participating merchants and at the Downtown Brenham Visitor Center (located in the historic Simon Theatre) for just $25 by December 31.  On January 1 until sold-out, glasses are $30.  To make it easier if you can’t get to Downtown Brenham before the big day,  you can simply pay online and pick up your glass on the day of the Swirl! Glasses ordered online can be picked up at the gazebo, on the square, in Downtown Brenham where you will also be able to pick up the map of the spots to stop in for each tasting.  Each tasting spot will also showcase the wines being samples along with their origin/vintner.

As the photo above shows, this is the absolutely most perfect way to have fun with a group of friends or your significant other!  It is also the place to catch up with people you have not seen for a while due to the hustle and bustle of the holidays and is a sure fire way to wind down and to restart! With all that Downtown Brenham and Washington County have to offer, you will definitely need to stay the weekend to enjoy just a sliver of it………….. We will be there and we look forward to seeing you there!
