Our Vision is to increase the awareness of the many local wineries & vineyards in the North & North East counties of Texas. Everyone knows about the Hill Country of Texas but few have enjoyed the many wineries located close to your daily travels.
Starplex Cinemas Forney Stadium 12 adds a little extra shine to every screening with modern technology and screening rooms. Viewers are thrust right into the action of the film by 3-D projectors. Plush chairs—stacked stadium style—envelope audience members in comfort while also providing them with the unobstructed sightline required to see every production assistant’s name in the credits. Other welcome amenities include wall-to-wall screens, digital surround sound and projectors, and a concession stand that serves the theater’s signature $1 hot dogs.
Dance & Arts Connection owner Vicky Clark-Staton doesn’t just want her students to master the proper techniques and steps of ballet, jazz, hip-hop, and the other styles taught at her studio. She strives to motivate her students to unlock a passion for movement, developing their own personal style and cultivating friendships along the way, as she did throughout more than 25 years of dance experience. When they’re not teaching kids to tap or leading patrons of all ages in cardio dance-fitness workouts, the instructors coach competitive dance companies. Their creative choreography and the dancers’ razor-sharp moves strike awe in audiences, judges, and even the most flexible golden figurines atop trophies.
Bob Landon has been making wine for decades, but he didn't always have French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks at his disposal. His first forays into small-batch winemaking took place in his basement, but like Batman's love of justice, his hobby was soon elevated to a profession. Today, he and the Landon Winery staff cultivate Texas–grown viognier and tempranillo grapes into a rotating selection of house varietals.
At either location, oenophiles can deepen their knowledge of wines or simply explore the facilities. The McKinney location features an old well that dates back more than 150 years, and the 15,000 square foot Greenville location boasts more than 100 oak barrels filled with grapey blends and one batch of orange juice just pretending. Landon Winery also hosts events and classes that allow visitors to pair wines with food, sample sips, and make their own custom wines.
Located on Main Street of Grapevine, Texas, D'Vine Wine treats visitors to countless varieties of wine paired with savory cheese and charcuterie plates. In the tasting and dining area, honeycombed wine racks and wooden barrels line the earth-toned walls, allowing visitors to imagine they've been swept away to the rustic cottage of a Tuscan vintner or the panic room of a billionaire. Guests sip house-made sauvignon blanc, malbec, and fruit-infused wine, while customers consult with wine representatives on creating a personalized label for any occasion.
