It might be a bit early to enjoy North Texas foliage, but don?t let that stop you from harvesting your own scenic holiday this weekend with a road trip that promises mystery, fun and lots of wine.
The Cross Timbers Wine Trail stretches 71 miles, from Burleson (just south of Fort Worth) northwest to Alvord, and features six wineries: Sunset Winery, Lost Oak Winery, Times Ten Cellars, LightCatcher Winery and Bistro, La Buena Vida Vineyards at Springtown and Brushy Creek Vineyards.
With this year?s harvest over--and the crop expected to be better than average--what better time is there to explore the region?s grape offerings?
It just so happens that Cross Timbers has made it convenient with scavenger-hunt-style Murder Mystery weekends, which take place tomorrow, Sunday and next weekend. As you visit each winery, you?ll receive a clue and a piece of the plotline.
By the last stop (the tour can be split over two weekends), not only will you have sussed out the ?criminal? but you?ll also know more about these boutique wineries and the picturesque, tree-lined settings in which many are located.
Tickets are $30 per person or $50 per couple, and the price includes a Wine Trails logo glass and three wine samples paired with appetizers at each winery.
Exploring off-the-beaten-path wineries, enjoying worthy wine and food and solving a mystery? Sounds like a productive weekend we?d love to experience firsthand.
