Friday April 14th 

We have selected four preferred wine-tasting locations for your enjoyment. They are strategically located on the north and south ends and east and west sides of main street. This will give you ample opportunity to visit each venue and browse several of the local businesses. Wine tastings generally consist of five wines and are $14 to $16 before discounts. This will be a pay as you go tour, but please register so we can inform the wineries on how many participants they might expect. Please check out their websites for more information.

Transportation will be by personal vehicle, Uber, cab, and possible by courtesy van provided by the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce. The later is a courtesy shuttle that runs to all the local hotels so it will be a public transit. The schedule for 2023 has not yet been distributed.
