It’s Time for Wine

Aug 26, 2015 04:31PM, Published by Dia, Categories: Eat+Drink, In Print, Life+Leisure



Maybe you’re a wine connoisseur who swirls and sips like a pro. Or perhaps you’re a novice. Whether you’re a wine lover, simply enjoy a glass on occasion, or (gasp!) don’t even like wine, there’s something for all palettes at the largest wine festival in the Southwest. Historic Downtown Grapevine will play host to the 29th Annual GrapeFest, September 17-20. 

Sample sips from across Texas, premium Oregon wines and even high-end premium Argentina wines. Take part in the People’s Choice Wine Tasting Class, or sink your toes into the action at GrapeStomp, where you’ll have the chance to stomp approximately 18 pounds of grapes for two minutes — with the teams that stomp the most juice gaining eligibility in the Grand Championship StompOff. Tennis lovers can head to the courts throughout Grapevine and Colleyville for the GrapeFest Tennis Classic, featuring multiple events for both junior-level and adult players. And for those with an affinity for bubbly, the Champagne Terrace offers the perfect shaded escape to enjoy your favorite sips, while the Champagne Cork Shoot-Off is just plain fun. 

Not just a 21 and older event, there’s plenty of entertainment for the entire family, including delicious festival foods like snow cones, cotton candy and root beer floats, four stages of live music, and a KidCave featuring everything from aquatic creatures to a LEGO- building playground. All restaurants on Grapevine’s Historic Main Street will also be open throughout the festival. Come early for free admission all day Thursday or until 5 p.m. Friday, and children age five and under are free anytime. We’ll raise a glass to that!
