Raise a glass for the Blessing of the Vines and the New Vintage Wine and Gallery Trail!
Every April, everyone is invited to experience the 400-year old tradition and European blessing. In this tradition, a priest blesses the vines, praying for a bountiful harvest and successful vintage.
Once the Blessing of the Vines ceremony is over, the celebration continues on the New Vintage Wine and Gallery Trail. Enjoy a variety of wine, food and live entertainment at Grapevine’s wine tasting rooms. Each stop on the trail will treat guests to three wine tastings and a food item at each winery tasting room . Participants will also receive a souvenir wine glass.
In addition to the art galleries and fine art working studios throughout the city, special works of art will also be on display at the following locations.
* Palace Arts Center, 300 S. Main St.
* Grand Gallery and Tower Gallery at the Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau Headquarters, 636 S. Main St.
