Grapevine Wine Tours

Pssst... Did you know that Texas is #4 in wine production within the States?! A few weeks ago we learned just how great Texas wine is at the Grapevine Wine Tours. 

For all the wine lovers out there, you will not want to miss this post! We're giving y'all an insiders' look at what the tours are all about.

Before arriving to the first winery, our guide mentioned to us that we would be accomplishing two things during our tour.

1. Figure out what we like
2. Figure out what we don't like

And surprisingly enough, we were able to cross both items off the list at the first stop.


Our tour began at the award-winning Homestead Winery Tasting Room, located in an 1890's Victorian house. Although based at the family farm in Ivanhoe, Texas, this winery has two tasting rooms, one of which (lucky for us) is in the heart of Grapevine.

Not only were their wines fantastic, but they had also arranged their wide selection of reds and whites in order from dry to sweet. And we were literally able to go down the endless row of wines to find our favorites!

Our top picks: Ivanhoe Knights, Chocolate Rose, and Desert Rose

At our second stop, we paid a visit to Winewood for lunch and another small wine tasting. (Both of which are included in the price of the tour.)

We were given a short menu with a few different options to chose from for a full three-course meal. It was overall a decent dining experience that was much needed to refuel for the last wine tasting!


The last winery of the day was Messina Hof, which is situated right off of Main Street, inside the replica of the Wallis Hotel from 1891.

The tasting was set up a little differently than our previous stops. We were each given four tokens to be used in exchange for a taste of a different wine. It was a little disappointing because we wanted to try everything, but we were still able to get a good idea of what their wines have to offer.

The bottom line:
We highly recommend the Grapevine Wine Tours. You're not only getting to try different Texas wines, but you also get to experience the culture in Downtown Grapevine. Maybe I'm just biased because I grew up in the town, but there's SO much to love. 

Whether you're just looking for something fun to do over the weekend or planning a Bachelorette Party, you definitely need to book a tour!

Something to keep in mind as you're planning your trip is that all tours will vary. There are 10 wineries in Grapevine, so your tour may not match exactly with ours. Regardless, you will surely have a blast!
