With October rapidly coming to a close, the chance to really get out there and enjoy the fall season is dwindling more and more with each passing day. Back in September, we featured 10 of the hottest fall festivals taking place in the DFW area this year, but now that many of those events have come and gone, many locals might be left wondering how best to spend the remainder of this year's autumn season.
If you happen to live in Dallas, or don't mind making the trip from your DFW suburb, one great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon is to tour all of the awesome, and in some cases award-winning wineries that call Dallas home. To date, three very prominent wineries are located around downtown Dallas, with each offering something special and unique to wine connoisseurs and causal drinkers alike. So if you're scrambling for something to do this weekend, or sometime over the next few weeks, there's no better time to explore Dallas' best and most recognized wineries than in the fall!
If you're unfamiliar with the three major wineries in Dallas, here's a quick profile on each:
Having been in business over 30 years, its easy to see why Inwood Winery is among the best when it comes to wine in Texas. Offering an extensive selection of red and whites, Inwood will impress even the most experienced and knowledgeable wine drinkers. Located in the heart of the Design District, Inwood Estates offers weekly tasting and is open every Friday for happy hour, and every Saturday from 12-5 p.m. Check out the company website here>>>
