Grapevine’s 26th Annual Grapefest

Grapefest 2012

It’s that time of year again! Four fun-filled days celebrating everyone’s favorite: grapes! Or wine! Celebrate the weekend with fellow wine-lovers and spend time in Historic Downtown Grapevine.

There are so many fun options to choose from at the festival. I’ll help narrow down a few.

If you are a noted “wine connoisseur” around your friends, you’ll want to participate in the People’s Choice Wine Tasting. There are actually 10 different sessions throughout the festival featuring 38 Texas wineries bringing 130 wines to choose from. Here are the session times.

Looking for a little competition to liven things up? Teams will compete in the fantastic GrapeStomp throughout the entire weekend. Two people per team will stomp 18 pounds of grapes for two minutes. A Grand Champion Stompoff will happen on Sunday. And the winners will win the “Purple Foot” award! Who doesn’t want a custom glass trophy of their own foot?

The kids will not want to miss the rides. That’s the reason they’ll tag along with you. This year you can purchase the Unlimited Ride Pass online for a discount of only $25 instead of $30. This offer is good until September 12.

Why not get really involved this year? Become a Grapefest Volunteer! Make friends and help out with the largest wine festival in the Southwest. Here’s the sign-up sheet to volunteer.

Ladies, don’t forget the shopping! Fun, food, wine and shopping! What more could a girl ask for?
