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.
Located on Main Street of Grapevine, Texas, Grape Vine Springs Winery 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.
30-minute tours educate guests on how Delaney’s wines go from grape to glass and end with a tasting of five of the in-house vintages. On Thursday nights, the winery also hosts a “Rhythm and Wine” event where couples can sip wine and tap their feet to the sound of live music.
Nestled among the wooden corrals and brick façades of the historic Fort Worth Stockyards district, Cowtown Winery pairs meats and cheeses with red, white, semisweet, and dessert wines handcrafted by an in-house vintner. Amid shelves stocked with emerald rows of bottles, the winery’s tasting bar hosts daily samplings of premium wines such as the tart Silver Spur red and a pinot grigio with subtle aromas of apple, pear, and aged stetson hat. Live acoustic music on the weekends helps to inspire first-time winemakers as they consult with vintners to design custom labels and concoct up to 29 bottles of their own signature wine.

Dan Gatlin is a bona fide pioneer in the field of Texas winemaking. His father owned a chain of convenience and wine and spirits stores, which meant Dan was closely attuned to the rise of winemaking in California in the 1970s. In 1981, Dan took a shot at spurring the same type of enterprise in Texas, opening a small vineyard that would one day grow into the successful Inwood Estates Vineyards. Today the winery produces red and white wines that take advantage of Texas's distinctive terroir, or soil, to produce complex flavors.
