Alcohol tourism has become very popular in Denison. The city will host its second wine tasting event within two months this weekend.


Denison’s Wine Festival will be held from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Saturday in Heritage Park in downtown Denison. Tickets were sold online through Wednesday. Event tickets will be available at the event, but Denison Chamber of Commerce members expect the event to sell out earlier.


Tickets are $30 and include a souvenir wine glass and six wine and food tasting tickets. VIP tickets offer unlimited wine tastings. Individuals must be 21 or over to taste the wines available.


There will be six wineries on site and many wines will be available. Food will be provided by Bon Appetit Y’all.


Entertainment will be provided by Dallas-based gypsy jazz band La Pompe. Also, a local artist will be on site displaying art.


There will also be booths presented by local businesses and galleries.
