Thanks to local Dallas and Fort Worth Metroplex residents and out of town visitors, Grapevine’s wine tour runneth over with popularity. Grapevine Wine Tours has become so popular in fact that the company has added a Sunday brunch time tour and the addition of a new tour bus for 2011.
Lunch or Dinner tours begin with a scheduled pick-up from one of the local hotels. Tour goers are carted through downtown Grapevine and to three of Grapevine, Texas’ wineries. Since there are so many wineries in the area the schedule of which one gets on the tour is rotated. So if you already know you have a favorite Grapevine winery call ahead to be sure it’s on the tour you schedule.
Not only do you get to tour and taste at three award-winning wineries the cost of the tour includes lunch or dinner to boot. Lunch tours run $59.50 and dinner tours $79.50.
Tour busses hold 21 passengers so the tour is a great group outing whether it’s a corporate event or a bridal luncheon.
At the end of the tour you’ll get to cast your vote for Grapevine’s“Most Outstanding Winery” and “Most Outstanding Wine.” Winners will be announced quarterly and annually.
If you didn’t get in a Grapevine Wine Tour in 2010 then make it happen in 2011. Owner, Ladd Brio says, “we’re expecting a big week during Super Bowl and we are projecting to continue our month-to-month growth.”
Dallasites can hop over to Grapevine in nothing flat, but may want to book a participating hotel and make a weekend of it. The city of Grapevine has a lot to offer. If you’re a B&B fan, contact Garden Manor B&B in Grapevine for their one night stay package deal.
Hotel stops for the tour bus: (If you’re not staying at one of the hotels choose one for your pick-up and drop off destination.)
