Update: Su Vino Winery has closed
Su Vino Winery is located in Grapevine and opened in 2003. David and Chari Scott bought the winery in 2005.
If you want to walk to the different wineries in Grapevine, Su Vino Winery is the most northern winery within walking distance. The winery is located in a nice brick building next to other stores and has parking in the back of the winery.
When you enter the winery, a large gift shop is on the left and you can see the long tasting bar on the right wall. You can sit at the tasting bar to do a tasting where there is a tasting fee for four wines from all of their in stock wines or if you want to pay a higher tasting fee, the souvenir glass is included. Su Vino Winery uses corks and the tastings are poured with a measured pourer.
You can buy appetizers while at the winery like Sourdough bread and oil and vinegar, mixed nuts, hummus and pita chips, mixed olives, antipasto, and more.
At the time of my visit, the winery made one Texas wine with Texas grapes. The rest of the grapes come from California. Su Vino Winery’s wine consultant is Mark Pavlovich. The winery produces around 6,000 cases of wine a year.
As I mentioned before, there is a large gift shop so there is a nice selection of items to choose from such as wine gift baskets, wedding favors, gourmet food, wine accessories, home decorations, and clothing. A large number of the gift items are available on their website too for online ordering.
Su Vino Winery offers customers the ability to make you own wine along with a custom wine label. Besides the ability to choose the varietal of wine, you can also determine the level of oak and aging, make it sweeter or drier, and even create your own blend. Depending on the type of wine you decide to make, you will come back to the winery between two to five months later to bottle your wine.
There is a wine club available called Club Vino.
The tasting room can be used for corporate events, birthday parties, bridal showers, anniversaries, and other events. Catering is available or you can arrange your own catering. Educational classes are held to help consumers learn more about wine.
Su Vino Winery is on the Grapevine Wine Trail.
