Some of the fun activities during the wine trail will include a murder mystery where participants can receive clues at each tasting room from which they can use to solve the mystery. There will also be a costume contest with prizes for the best costumes.
Participating wineries include: Su Vino Winery, Cross Timbers Winery, Homestead Winery, La Buena Vida Vineyards, La Bodega Winery, D’Vine Winery, Farina’s Winery, and Inwood Estates. The wine trail will take place in historic downtown Grapevine, where most of the tasting rooms are within walking distance of each other. The wine trail will run from 11 am to 5 pm.
