We are very excited to announce Jester King will be the home of Wild World, a two-day natural wine festival on May 18th and 19th. This festival brings over 40 producers from all over the world sharing tastings and chatting about their craft. While this festival is mostly natural winemakers, it will also include several breweries, cideries, meaderies, as well as local food vendors.
We began offering wines in our tasting room several years ago intending to simply expand our beverage offerings. Since then, the wine program lead by Wine Coordinator Traci Walker has focused on providing an array of naturally fermented wines that mirror our ethics as a brewery and farm. Interest in natural wine has grown among our staff and our guests more than we could imagine. The Jester King wine program has led to us planting our own vineyard for future winemaking, connected us with natural winemakers around the world who inspire us, and brought this festival to our farm.
The lineup for Wild World includes some Jester King wine list regulars like Brendan Tracey, Eric Texier, La Clarine Farm, and Broc Cellars. There will also be a handful of breweries, cideries, and meaderies in attendance. The full list of producers can be found HERE.
Tickets for Wild World are $85 for a single day pass or $135 for a two day pass. A very limited number of round-trip shuttle tickets are available to purchase at $20 per day. The shuttle runs from Carpenter Hall in South Austin.
We hope you will join us in what will be a very exciting event filled with several inspirational winemakers at the Jester King Hall and Farm!
