Blue Line Winery opened its tasting room location at 136 E. Hill St. in the Old Town Keller area. The new tasting room had its grand opening Jan. 1, according to a post to the winery’s Facebook page, after a soft opening in December. Hours posted to the Facebook page show Blue Line Winery is open from 3-9 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays, 3-10 p.m. on Saturdays and 3-9 p.m. on Sundays. The winery is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Blue Line Winery was founded in 2017 by Chris and Lyn Gilliam, who use grapes from Texas, California and Arkansas to make their wines, according to the winery’s website. A goal of Blue Line Winery is to raise funds for charities supporting first responders. According to its website, profits from Hofer Red, a merlot and cabernet sauvignon blend, will go to support the families of fallen police officers. The company also operates wine bars available for events.


In a Facebook message to Community Impact Newspaper, a representative for Blue Line Winery said the team is hoping to host an event toward the end of January, possibly Jan. 28 or Jan. 29, that would include food trucks and live music. More information about that event will be posted to the winery's Facebook page. 817-562-8659. www.bluelinewinery.com
