How about a little California harvest weather right here in Texas? Join us this Saturday morning as we bring in the Cabernet Sauvignon. We’ll start the day in the 50’s and it won’t get much over 75 degrees… perfect weather to be outside. Lunch and wine for all participants!
If you want to try your hand at picking grapes, send us a message or give us a call at (214) 536-6330 and we’ll fill you in on all the details.Read More
The fall tour season is quickly approaching! Check our calendar for the available tour dates in October. Harvest season is stretching out this year a little longer than usual so the tours won’t start until mid-October. During harvest and crush, the winery is buzzing with activity. It should be fairly settled down by then and we’ll have just enough room to bring our guests in to see what’s happening.
Tours last about 1.5 hours and require reservations. You can use the reservation form on the Tasting Room & Tours page of our website.Read More
If you are a fan of sweet reds, then you will enjoy our latest vintage of Intermission. It is light-bodied and smooth, with flavors of raspberry, candied apple and sweet pepper. Production is very limited so it will not be available for very long.
Not only is the wine good, but label artwork by Julie Pitman makes these bottles collectible.Read More
How do you normally spend your Saturday mornings? If you’re not working, chances are you’re either juggling laundry and trying to get the kids’ attention away from the cartoons to the breakfast table, mowing the lawn or planning the day’s other chores and errands. How about something completely different, far enough from home for a change of scenery with some rural quietude but close enough to be home for dinner?
Grape Harvest 101 starts at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 5. If you’d like to be in the vineyard for the morning trying your hand at harvesting grapes, we’ll show you how. Just leave a comment below and we’ll send you the details. Our harvest parties include a great big buffet lunch with wine, fun door prizes and a souvenir Arché wine glass to take home.Read More

Check out this video from last year’s Chardonnay harvest.
The precursor of Memorial Day, Decorations Day, was first observed in 1868, as a day to honor and remember fallen soldiers of the Civil War. 147 years later, we carry on the tradition of remembering America’s fallen soldiers of every war. Whether we are at war or in a period of peace, we will always remember those heroes who sacrificed their lives for our freedom and way of life.
As a small token of our appreciation for the men and women who have served and who do so now, we will be serving a free BBQ plate this Saturday to all Active Military Personnel and honorable Veterans. All others may enjoy a hearty beef plate for just $5 (free for Club 228 members). Tack on a FREE tasting of our newest wine release, and you’ve got a great meal!
The food will be available from the time we open at noon until we run out so don’t take too long getting here!Read More
