Grape Creek Vineyards is a very popular winery location in Fredericksburg and to help fans of their wines get more access to the wines, Grape Creek Vineyards has two tasting room locations. One is in nearby Fredericksburg on Main Street and the other is in the town of Georgetown. I visited both locations recently.
The Georgetown location is in a renovated building on the town square across the street from the courthouse. It was easy to find among the other stores surrounding the courthouse. The location opened March 2, 2013.
General manager Christy showed me around the large tasting room. There are stainless steel tanks ready to house some wine being produced. If you are a Grape Creek wine club member, there is an exclusive and wonderful lounge upstairs with views of the square and all the facilities you could need to enjoy Grape Creek wine. Since Grape Creek has approximately 5,000 wine club members, this is wonderful for those who live in the area.
There is a tasting fee for six wines and you get to keep the glass. The tasting fee is refunded with a three bottle purchase. Tastings are done while standing at the tasting bar. The tastings are poured from the bottle and oyster crackers are available for cleansing your palate. Cheese, crackers, and meat are also available for purchase to enjoy. All Grape Creek wines are available at the tasting room.
A gift shop is also available with wine accessories and more. A large outdoor patio has seating available and live music is held on the weekends. The Georgetown square is very active with events and of course people take advantage of the Grape Creek Vineyards tasting room during those times.
Main Street – Fredericksburg
The tasting room on Main Street in Fredericksburg is located among the many shops available in Fredericksburg. The location was originally the Henke Meat Market and the old meat lockers are still inside the location.
The same wines and tastings are available as is in Georgetown so I will not repeat them. The gift shop has grapeseed oils, dessert sauces, mustards, and dipping sauces available.
I did confirm what Christy had told me. Grape Creek Vineyards produces around 30,000 cases of wine a year.
Now when you are shopping in Fredericksburg, you can stop in for a break and enjoy some Grape Creek wine.
