Each year over Labor Day Weekend wine lovers and music enthusiasts gather at the Quiet Valley Ranch (9 miles south of Kerrville on TX Hwy 16) to celebrate the art of songwriting and winemaking. This Texas Hill Country setting is perfect for introducing our audiences to the newest and best wines that Texas has to offer in addition to performances by dozens of the world?s best songwriters.

The Kerrville Wine & Music Festival features three, 6-hour evening concerts and two, 2-hour afternoon concerts by two dozen singer-songwriters.
