2016 Oktoberfest Celebration & Concert
There are currently over two million residents of the Lone Star State claiming German heritage, and many of these will be celebrating that heritage at an Oktoberfest this year. Often beer comes to mind when you think of Oktoberfest; however, Germany is also very proud of the many fine wines made there. Actually the grapes from some of the sweet white wines now made in many countries originated in Germany, the most well-known of these being Gewurztraminer (which means spice grapes) and Riesling.
So in celebration of our German heritage, and to pay tribute to the German wine industry, we host an annual Oktoberfest Party at Peach Creek. Our Oktoberfest parties come with a bit of a Texas twist, as we serve up a heaping helping of country music instead of oom-pah music. This year, we will be enjoying the music of Darwin Macon.
But in keeping with German tradition and to lend a little authenticity to the party, there will be bratwurst, yummy handcrafted sauerkraut, special German bread, and homemade Peach Kuchen. Although we are not allowed to serve German beer on the premises (due to TABC permit rules), there will be some delicious Peach Creek wines and Wine Slushies available to enjoy with the music and the food!
So make plans to join us on Friday, October 28th, from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM as we salute Texas Wine Month and Oktoberfest.
$5.00 Music Cover; and food will be Available for purchase While supplies last. More information available here.
Blessing of the Vineyard, June 18, 2016
Our annual event to give thanks for the health of the vineyard and for the upcoming harvest. This year, the event will be at 6:30 pm on Saturday, June 18 and will be officiated by Craig Borchardt, Ph.D., President and CEO of Hospice Brazos Valley.
Craig is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Hospice Brazos Valley, a non-profit based community hospice serving 17 counties. He also is the Chairman of the Texas Non Profit Hospice Alliance. He previously served for 20 years as the Senior Pastor of Peace Lutheran Church in College Station, Pastor of Grace Lutheran Church, New Orleans, and Special Assistant to the President of Lutheran Social Services of the South, a social service agency of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Craig is an ordained pastor on the clergy roster of the ELCA.
You’re also invited to join us for fun and entertainment from 5:00 until 8:00 pm. Music will be provided by a nationally acclaimed local jazz musician, Greg Tivis.
Take the Great American Songbook and combine it with a great jazz pianist and you’ve got Greg Tivis. In the tradition of Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick, Jr., Michael Buble, and Diana Krall, Tivis is a renaissance man in his own right. Crisp flowing articulation and a distinctive swing style have elevated this jazz artist to another level. In musician’s terms, Greg Tivis is a veteran who knows the trenches. From show bands to circus bands, dance orchestras to blues bands, jazz bands to rock bands, he’s been there, done that. He’s paid his dues, and earned the respect of musicians and fans all over the country. He does it for one reason, he loves to entertain people!
If you like drinking out of a wine glass, feel free to bring one with you; we serve in plastic cups at events for safety. However, no outside food or drinks can be brought in.

2015 Vineyard Blessing
On the Sunday of the final Harvest Trail weekend, July 19th, you’re invited to join us at Peach Creek immediately after the Trail activities (about 5:15 PM) for our annual Blessing of the Vineyard.
The Reverend Rodney Calvert will perform the short ceremony of thanksgiving around 5:30 pm. After the ceremony, music and snacks will be available until 8:00 pm. There will be a $5.00 cover charge for the music. Mike Gallo will be providing music for the event.
Mike Gallo is a solo artist who has made a specialty out of playing small to medium size venues. His acoustic guitar work is like none you’ve ever heard. Even his gentle love songs are laid on a foundation of complex rhythms. Perhaps guitar work is what he is most proud of, and you can hear it in his music. His faster songs rush like water flowing down a rocky creek. His acoustic guitar sound is exceptional with bass and synthesizer pads adding to the fullness. On the other hand, he makes his Les Paul cry as he plays over tracks he previously recorded in his studio. Drums, bass, keyboard, and other guitars lay a groove for him to navigate his way through the songs. It is all him though, all of the programming of the drum machine and keyboards, playing bass guitar and rhythm guitar, and laying background vocals. Mike doesn’t hide behind the tracks, but uses them as a tool to fill a room with a full band sound.
The music in Mike’s set is mostly original, sprinkled with songs from some of his favorite artists, you’ll hear some of Mike’s original music that you’ll be impressed with, plus some other songs that you’ll recognize. Mike has played at many venues all around Texas, and we’re very excited to have him perform at our Vineyard Blessing!
