A small fact that even some locals tend to forget is that the city of Grapevine is home to a throng of vineyards and independent wineries, lending itself to an impressive collection of wine experiences. A favorite is La Buena Vida Vineyards, which blends beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces with ornate, Spanish tile fountains and a modern but rustic elegance. The vineyard features award-winning wines and often updates its featured selections to showcase their offerings.
Another must-see winery in Grapevine is Delaney Vineyards & Winery. The 20-year old business is privately owned by its original founder, Jerry Delaney, who operates two vineyards in Texas. Delaney proudly sells his house wines and tours of the winery are available. On Thursday nights this summer, be sure to check out Rhythm and Wine to enjoy the wine and live music while overlooking the vines.
