Offered on Curb Side Purchases Only
For curb side service at any of our locations, you may use our web site or call the individual tasting room to make your order. When calling our tasting room, our staff can walk you through the steps. If you prefer to use our web site, when you “proceed to checkout” you will see your shipping address. At that point click on the “I prefer to pick up my order”. This will allow you to fill in the name of the person who will be picking up your wine. Please make sure that this person is over 21 years of age and has a valid driver’s license with them for identification. Once you proceed to the payment method, it may tell you that the wine you have selected is not in stock at the location you have chosen. This will mean that the wine you have chosen may be available for shipping or for pick up at another location. Please note in your order an estimate of the date and time that you plan to pick up your wine. If you choose the curb side service please call the tasting room when you are on site.
We are now offering home delivery, usually same day. We will be delivering to a 10 mile radius of Grapevine, Texas and a 15 mile radius around Fredericksburg. The charge will be $10 delivery charge. Club benefit pricing will apply. This fee will be waived for purchases over $50.
Very Important: When we make an appointment for this home deliver, please make sure that there will be a person over 21 years of age that has a valid driver’s license with them for identification to accept the delivery.
As always, tips are not necessary, our servers are paid a fair hourly wage as well as a bonus on the amount of wine sales and wine club member signups. If you would like to show appreciation to our servers as well as our whole team, please buy more wine!
We are sure that this is a trying time for you. Thank you for remembering our team members as well. Our vineyard crew, winery team, tasting room team, and our family all thank you. We hope that you will consider purchasing wine in any or all of these ways available to you during this time.
You can rest assured when drinking Bingham wine, because you will know where 100% of the grapes were grown as well as who crafted 100% of the wine.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement.
Thank you, Jerry, for attending the media day and for helping to promote great Texas Wine.
You can read his whole article on the Texas Wine Lover web site. But here are a few quotes…
“Among those top awards are the Top Texas Wine title that went to the aforementioned Bingham Family Dugout Red, along with the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation Award.
The Top Texas Wine Company, and recipient of the Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner’s Award, was Becker Vineyards.”
Jerry attended the 2020 Rodeo Uncorked! Media Day
You can rest assured with Bingham wine knowing where 100% of the grapes were grown and 100% of the wine was produced.
Some Ideas for Social Isolation During a Pandemic
You probably all have heard that Texas has joined other states across the country in ordering the closure of all schools, gyms, and restaurants. Restaurants as well as tasting rooms such as ours are still allowed to serve take-out food or curbside service.
Gov. Greg Abbott has asked us to avoid social gathering of more than ten people. These times are hard to for most of us to become accustomed to.
Best Texas Wine – 2020 Houston Rodeo Uncorked! Wine Competition, 2017 Dugout
We were excited to let you know the good news when we heard last November that we were humbled to learn that we had won Best Texas Wine in the 2020 Houston Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition. You can read the post here where we listed all of our winners including two double gold medals, four gold medals, ten silver medals, and two bronze medals. Of those there were three Class Champions, one Reserve Class Champion, four Texas Class Champions, and four Texas Reserve Class Champions.
We are so proud of the hard work that our vineyard workers and winery staff had done with these wines. With Bingham Family Vineyards wines you always know that 100% of the grapes were grown and the wine produced by us for your enjoyment.
Wine of the Week: Estate 2018 Fine ‘n Dandy
and Happy Valentine’s Day!
Enjoy a glass with your Sweetheart this Valentine’s Day!
Our estate 2018 Fine ‘n Dandy is a nouveau style wine, oaked for just a couple of months to give the wine a fresh and fruit forward taste. It is a sweet wine great for sipping with barbecue chicken and cookout fare of hot dogs and hamburgers. Enjoy it with your chocolate desserts as well. Serve slightly chilled.
Eddie Bingham, the grandfather of the family, was dearly loved and respected by all. His favorite wine was a sweet red like this wine. We dedicate this wine to “Dandy”.read more…
