Kiepersol Winery of Tyler held its annual Waking of the Vines event Saturday.

The winery and distillery were open to the public all day, with festivities including a performance by a Mariachi band, a crawfish boil and an exclusive white wine release for wine club members.

“Waking” the vines is a term assigned by late winery owner Pierre de Wet to mark the vines’ spring budding time. A similar event is held in the fall, when the vines are “put to rest” for winter.
