Free Admission - The Blessing of the Vines will continue rain or shine.
Take part in a tradition enjoyed by true wine aficionados for centuries.
The Blessing of the Vines is a centuries-old European blessing performed by a priest to ensuring a bountiful harvest, robust vines and savory grapes. The ceremony begins with a colorful procession through Delaney Vineyards, the largest vineyard in North Texas, and is followed by a complimentary wine tasting and live entertainment. The priest will bless the vines for the this year's harvest, as well as bless the new release wines from crops from previous years.
After the Blessing of the Vines, the celebration continues on the New Vintage Wine and Gallery Trail. Taste a variety of wines at Grapevine's winery tasting rooms and enjoy beautiful works of art throughout the city. Special works of art can be viewed at Grapevine's Palace Arts Center at 300 S. Main St. in Historic Downtown Grapevine; the Grand Gallery and Tower Gallery at the Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau Headquarters, 636 S. Main Street, and at galleries and fine art working studios throughout the city.
