A new release for our monthly club members for April, 2017 Vermentino. This wine will also be included in our traditional club shipments that will go out in a few weeks. You don’t want to miss out on these new releases, so join the family today! You can do it at our tasting room, winery, or on-line HERE! Choose either our traditional shipments which are selected twice a year, or our monthly club where members enjoy wines every month.
While we are busy running our vineyard heater to protect the vines for this years harvest, you can sit back and enjoy some of our new wines. This month we will be releasing our 2017 Vermentino, 2017 Roussanne, and a new varietal for us our semi-sweet 2017 Gewürztraminer.
The signs of spring are upon us. Most of our later budding varieties of grapes are pruned and not budding out yet. But our early bud breaking Viognier is waking up. The Viognier buds below were photographed on March 31st, 2018. These buds are apical dominance buds which we are not as concerned about since they will be pruned in a few days.
But our friend Fritz is better at explaining pruning than I am. You can read more on his website here.
Because of the risk of a late spring freeze killing the buds, we do not encourage our vines to wake up early. If the buds are killed, no fruit will develop later in the summer.
It’s here, the new 2017 vintage of Fine ‘n Dandy, especially for our sweet wine lovers! This sweet red wine blend has the aroma of dark cherry and strawberry with a strong pomegranate flavor.
For those times that you are wanting a sweet red wine to sip on the patio or to enjoy with a rich chocolate dessert, we share with you our 2017 Fine ‘n Dandy.
Spring is almost here. We are working in the vineyards getting the vines ready to wake up to make more wonderful 100% Texas estate wines for our friends to enjoy. But we also have a few new plans coming your way that we will be telling you more about in the next few weeks. One new dream is our new barrel room at the winery in Meadow, Texas. Let’s start with those plans first.
Bingham Family Vineyards is so excited about new construction in Grapevine. The new TEXRail train, the plaza, and The Vin Hotel to come soon after. What fun it will be to jump on a train and visit Grapevine! And of course you will want to stop by Bingham Family Vineyards tasting room just a block or so from the new train station where you know that you will be tasting award winning 100% Texas grown wine all from the Bingham’s Vineyards. We invite you to enjoy our hospitality.
Something neat to look forward to in 2019!
“From its 150-foot observation tower to the five-story train station and 121-room hotel all tied together with 19th-century-style architecture, TEXRail passengers won’t need an announcement over the train’s speakers to know where they are.”
“TEXRail will be a 27-mile passenger train with stops in downtown Fort Worth, Richland Hills, Grapevine and Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. The train is now scheduled to start service the first week of 2019, said Paul Ballard, president and CEO of Trinity Metro and TEXRail. The Grapevine Main station and Hotel Vin are scheduled to open in late 2019.”
