Not only that, purchasing a passport allows you to give back with $5 of every ticket sold donated to the Texas Hill Country Wine Industry Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is given to students working toward degrees in viticulture, enology and hospitality. More than $49,000 has been awarded to more than 30 Texas students.
