west texas events in late april

TAPAS member Newsom Vineyards announces three events for late April 2012:

First, Newsom Grape Day is scheduled for the 27th of April and will be held at Neal Newsom’s barn. This year the slate of speakers will be highlighted by Dr. Andy Walker. Dr. Walker is considered to be one of the foremost experts on rootstocks and has developed a line of nematode resistant rootstocks. Dr. Walker will be touring several vineyards in the region prior to Newsom Grape Day as well. Other speakers at this year’s event include Dr. Richard Becker, Roy Mitchell, Lou Bright and Mike Sipowicz.

Second, don’t forget the star party on Friday night, April 27 as well! This is always a great event and this year is possibly one of the best Neal has ever put together!
If you are interested in renting a booth please contact Neal at 806-456-7885 or and don’t forget to bring your checkbook for the silent auction. As always the proceeds will go to the Hoss Newsom Scholarship.

Third, the High Plains Vineyard Tour. One change from past years is that the tour that has typically been on the day before Newsom’s event will be held on the day after it this year. The tour will be on the 28th of April and will start at the Mallet Center in Levelland, TX. This year the tour will include a box lunch and a post tour Gala! The Gala is set to include a wine tasting, live music, a three course meal and a silent auction. It is going to be something that you will not want to miss! This year you will need to have a ticket (FREE) for the Gala. To reserve your ticket you can contact Steve Newsom at 806-638-6962 or email
