Great Taste

Oct 24, 2014 10:05AM, Published by Dia, Categories: Eat+Drink, Today



Texas, the 5th largest wine producing state, has more than 300 wineries. Hyper-locally, Grapevine is home to an amazing urban wine trail. With a tourism culture built right into the city, there are many ways to enjoy wineries within the town. Wine events and festivals take place throughout the year including one of the biggest in the nation, Grapefest. But there is also enjoyment to be had during the down times – when all is quiet on the festival front. With several wineries in close proximity, Grapevine is the perfect place for a wine tour company to set up shop.

  Exploring the Grapevine winery scene is as easy as booking a jaunt with Grapevine Wine Tours. Guests can enjoy a great four-hour experience eating, tasting wines and exploring Historic Downtown Grapevine. Each tour package features; a stop at three local wineries, lunch or dinner and climate-controlled transportation. More specifically, you’ll have a tour bus and guide, and generous wine tastings at two wineries and a three-course meal with wine at the third wine establishment. Each tasting lasts approximately 45 minutes with longer time allotted for the meal at the third stop.

There are seven wineries that participate with Grapevine Wine Tours, Cross Timbers, D*Vine Wine, Farinas Winery, Homestead Winery, Su Vino Winery, Winewood Grill and Delaney Vineyards. And since there’s only time to visit three locations on each tour, itineraries rotate daily. Take a tour on a Saturday afternoon and evening – you’ll be exploring different libation locations on each trip.

That gives you the perfect opportunity to make a weekend of it! As a local there may not be a need for you to lodge at one of the hotels on the pickup route, but why not make it a romantic staycation with your significant other or a girl’s weekend? These wine tours are perfect for bachelorette gatherings. Whatever circumstances bring you to Grapevine, taking a stroll – or bus ride – along the urban wine trail is a must.
