San Martino Winery was established just outside Rockwall, Texas in 2003. Using equipment shipped directly from Italy, this winery has grown to produce about 5,000 cases of wine each year. Bring a picnic lunch with you and enjoy time in nature at San Martino. A schedule of guided tours is available online.
In 2018, the 25-acre Double D Ranch became Rosini Vineyards when new owners Greg and Carol Rosini purchased the property. After renovating, the Rosinis planted their first vineyard of Blanc du Bois. Just a year after planting, their Blanc du Bois dry won silver in the Lone Star International Wine Competition. The Rosinis have also installed an apiary with a dozen beehives. Their honey is available for sale at the winery as well. If you enjoy your visit to Rosini Vineyards, consider a staycation. The ranch house on the property is available for vacation rental.
Transitioned from what was once cotton farms, Delaney Vineyards is now the largest vineyard in North Texas. The vineyard began production in Grapevine in 1990. The Delaneys soon added to the winery, built in the style of an 18th century French château. Stop by the vineyard Tuesday through Saturday and enjoy the wine and beautiful architecture and scenery.
