[Grapevine, Texas: 1993 Grape Fest]

Description: This film is unedited television footage regarding events and sites in Grapevine, Texas. The film covers the 7th Annual Grape Fest wine festival held on September 10th, 11th, & 12th, 1993. At the festival the camera crew films the festival grounds, vendors’ booths, craftspeople, musicians, children and adults eating fair food, a classic car show, a grape stamping contest, and Grape Fest’s black-tie gala. Festival visitors sample wines from the Texan wineries of Schoppaul Hill, Piny Hill Country, Ste. Genevieve, and Preston Trail. The film crew interviews Alfred Fleece, owner of Piny Hill Country Wines, who talks about the winery’s muscadine and fruit wines. Vendors sell pewter, ceramics, local honey, children’s toys, and jewelry; craftspeople are filmed at length while in the process of bootmaking, quilting, forming clay busts, spinning pots on a clay wheel, tooling leather, and whittling; tapdancers and squaredancers perform; and a musical group plays on a stage using a zither, acoustic guitar, and tall floor drum. The camera crew tells a man from a Texas NBC affiliate that the footage in this film is intended for a national CNBC show called "Discover America.” The last scene of the film includes footage of Lake Grapevine, sailboats, and bicyclists.
