Homestead Winery wins most outstanding winery in Grapevine

For the fifth consecutive year, guests of the Grapevine Wine Tours have chosen Homestead Winery as the city’s “Most Outstanding Winery.”

And for the fourth time in five years, one of Homestead’s wines was voted Grapevine’s “Most Outstanding Wine.” For 2015, Orange Muscat took home the award.

As it has since its inception in July 2010, Grapevine Wine Tours asks every guest to vote on his or her favorite wine and winery at the conclusion of each tour. This year’s results reflect votes cast between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31.

"We are always honored to be singled out by our friends at the Grapevine Wine Tours, but this year’s awards are even more meaningful because of all the excellent new wineries that have come to town," said Gabe Parker, owner of Homestead Winery. "With the increased competition we knew our wines and our service would be put to the test. I guess this means we passed.”

Grapevine Wine Tours are available daily year-round and rotate among each of the wine-tasting venues in the city, including Cross Timbers Winery, Delaney Vineyards, Grape Vine Springs Winery, Homestead, Messina Hof Winery, Sloan & Williams Winery, Su Vino Winery and Wine Fusion Winery.

Every four-hour excursion includes tastings at two wineries, a meal with wine at either Farina’s Winery & Cafe or Winewood Grill, a tour of Historic Grapevine led by a professional guide, and transportation to and from local hotels on one of the company’s three tour buses.

“Over the past two years, Grapevine has added several outstanding new wineries—including Sloan & Williams, Messina Hof and Wine Fusion—which we believe have raised the bar for every wine venue in the city,” said Nancy Childs, co-owner of Grapevine Wine Tours and its sister operation, Dallas Wine Tours. “Homestead has been a popular stop on our tours from the very beginning thanks to their exceptional customer service, generous pours and charming atmosphere. But our guests love the variety that our tours offer, which is why we experienced a record number of repeat visitors last year.”
