Start the day at Grapevine’s Delaney Vineyards at the Blessing of the Vines. Dignitaries and guests of all ages walk with a mariachi band through the beautiful Delaney Vineyards and experience a centuries-old European blessing performed by a priest. The priest will bless the vines, ensuring a bountiful harvest, as well as the new release wines. After the blessing, enjoy a complimentary wine tasting and live entertainment. The Blessing of the Vines event begins at 11 a.m. and is free for all ages.

If you would like to continue your day with a wine tasting at the various wineries in Grapevine, you may buy tickets for the The New Vintage Wine and Gallery Trail. For those that buy a wine trail ticket we will be providing a taste of Turnrow, Cloudburst, and our sweet Short Rows as well as some Dr. Sue’s chocolates.

This Saturday several of the Binghams will be around playing music for your enjoyment. We have our new Dirt Farmer red wine blend which is a blend of Tempranillo, Merlot, Dolcetto, and Cabernet Sauvignon We will also be releasing our 2014 Tempranillo varietal wine for our wine club members to purchase. As well as serving our dry and mixed flight wine tastings.

So come out and enjoy our wines and music as well as some cheese from Veldhuizen Cheese Shoppe and some Dr. Sue’s chocolates.
