arche syrah harvestHere’s one you can kick off your bucket list: grape harvesting. Pick grapes, eat food, drink wine! That’s pretty much all there is to it. There are some rules, though:

 

  • RSVP required. Call or text (214) 536-6330.
  • Must be at least 18 years old to participate.
  • We start at 7:30am but late arrivals are still welcome!
  • Must wear gloves.
  • Wear closed-toe shoes (no sandals).
  • Bring your hat and sunscreen. Also, white or light-colored long sleeves and pants really can keep you cooler in the sun than exposed skin.
  • Stay hydrated! We supply water. Just keep drinking! (water, that is)
  • Have fun! If you get out here and find the heat is too much, you’re just not enjoying yourself or you simply need a break, feel free to hang out in the tasting room or in the shade outside. We want you to have a great experience.
  • Stay for lunch. We will have a big spread for you to choose from along with Arché wines and non-alcoholic beverages, all FREE for participating harvesters!
  • Come home with an elegant Arché wine glass!
  • Door prizes!

arche_chardonnayAre you an ABC (Anything But Chardonnay) wine drinker? We might be able to change your mind with our estate grown 2015 Chardonnay. It just received the Texas Class Champion award for “Chardonnay aged all or part in barrels, $25 – $34” at the Houston Rodeo Uncorked International Wine Competition. We planted our first Chardonnay vine in 1999 and have grown the cultivar to well over a thousand producing vines. This Chardonnay has aromas of melon, apple, mandarin orange, pineapple and wet stone, with undertones of honey and caramel present on the palate. It has a subtle creaminess and full, rounded mouth-feel. It is not heavy on the oak, so is very appealing to many who insist they do not like Chardonnay. Try it for free this weekend in the tasting room and let us know what you think.
