It was nice. The atmosphere was laid back. When I took me and my friends for the wine tasting package for 4. It says that the wine is paired with snacks. We thought they were going to pair each wine we tasted with a snack it would go with. No. You pick 2 appetizers to go with your wine tasting. And they don’t pair it for you. I think they were new to the Groupon idea because they didn’t seem ready
Howdy Gabe! We had not visited this location before. I called ahead to see if it was ok to come that day with the Groupon. When we got there people there did not know anything about the Groupon, or a tasting class. They said they were not sure why the snacks were listed on the Groupon because they don't have any. They did give us some wines and a flight of beers though. We enjoyed the restaurant food. Liked the wines. Seemed like a lot more choices than 6 years ago in Ivanhoe. Had a flight of beers and Johnny showed us around the brewery side. Beer was ok. I recommend venting the steam outside and focus on sanitation. It is effecting product. The venue is really cool though. It was a nice place to just hang out. Why don't you still make the Liquid Pecan Pie? That delicious sherry was so yummy. The people there did not really know what I was talking about when I asked about it.
We had a great time! The wine and beer tasting was fun and informative and the snack was delicious. The prices were very reasonable if you wanted to get a bottle of wine to take home. The tour of the brewery was very detailed and everyone who helped/talked to us were very friendly. We will definitely be visiting them again.

About Homestead Winery
Gabe Parker's grandfather began farming in North Texas more than a century ago. Wanting to continue that tradition, Gabe and his wife, Barb, planted their own crops in the rich soil of Ivanhoe—only instead of corn and wheat, they cultivated grapes for chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon.
Gabe and Barb's Homestead Winery has since built a reputation for producing rich, full-bodied flavors and award-winning wines. Their main production facility still resides in Ivanhoe and is open for tours and other events, but additional locations in Denison and Grapevine invite guests to taste and purchase Homestead's wines inside historic and charming venues.
