Our 2020 Fiesta medals have arrived! Fiesta San Antonio is a tradition that many would be celebrating right now with numerous parties, events, and parades, but the festivities have been moved to November because of COVID-19. Despite this, many Fiesta diehards are still celebrating at home this April. #FiestaAtHome
Fiesta originated in 1891 with a Battle of Flowers parade to salute the heroes of the Alamo and battle of San Jacinto. Fiesta has taken place every year except for 1918 during World War I, and 1942 through 1945 during the Second World War.
This is Bending Branch Winery’s third year to create a Fiesta medal, and all proceeds go to a local charity. As in 2019, this year’s recipient will be the Boys & Girls Club of Comfort. Their mission is to empower all young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as responsible, caring, and productive citizens.
Fiesta medals are $10 each and available online or for curbside pick-up at Bending Branch Winery and Ursa at Branch on High. Shipping is available. Get yours today, and help support the mission of this important local nonprofit organization. ¡Viva Fiesta!

It’s been nearly a month since COVID-19 changed our lives and our operations here at Bending Branch Winery. A pandemic of this magnitude is like nothing in our lifetime.
We remain diligent in increasing our precautionary measures for the safety of our employees, members, and customers. We’re using our ozone machine to sanitize work areas. Production continues with ample distance and limiting the number of our people in work areas. We’ve ordered protective masks for our team to wear, and we will use face shields and gloves when bottling resumes. We will also be using UV surface sterilizers with safety glasses throughout our operations.
Our tasting rooms remain closed except for touchless curbside pick-up, which has been expanded to 7 days a week. You can also order online and have wine shipped directly to you in 30+ states.
We urge all of you to continue to be diligent in social distancing, hand washing, and wearing masks if you have to leave your house. These are necessary measures to slow the spread.
Stay safe, and thank you all for supporting Bending Branch Winery.
Through the end of April, take advantage of wine delivery by our tasting room team and receive a bottle of Thinkers Red Blend ($20 value) or Thinkers Blanc ($15 value) for only $1.
