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.”

When you ask yourself where the grapes were grown in the wine that you are drinking, read the label to give you information. This video produced by High Plains Winegrowers has Bree Nelson explain to consumers how to read a wine label to see what percent of Texas grapes are in your wine. One way to tell is to look for “Texas High Plains” as the AVA (American Viticultural Area) on the label. That will let you know that at least 85% of the grapes in this bottle are grown in the High Plains of Texas.
If you want to make sure that 100% of the grapes in the bottle are Texas grown just buy Bingham Family Vineyards wines which proudly state on our label that they are 100% Texas grown.
So enjoy your wine, and enjoy knowing where the grapes were grown as you explore new wines and new varietal wines.
On the eve of the industry’s Texas Wine & Grape Growers Association Annual Conference – we’re eager to share this tid bit with you & the rest of the world.
Choosing Texas wine is a wonderful decision. Choosing a #TexasHighPlains grown wine is an intelligent one. #GenerationalFarmers #PremiumGrowingRegion
