Running the Wine Trail

The next installment of the Dallas Wine Trail trek starts at Times Ten Cellars.

The neighborhood winery and Fuqua Winery near Mockingbird Lane and Inwood Road serve as the check-in points for wine aficionados who take the tour, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., July 23, at four locations.

The wine tasting and food pairings tour also includes Inwood Estates Vineyards and Calais Winery, and the overall event benefits the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas.

Tickets to the tour cost $55 per person and must be procured by July 21.

Tour-takers — tourists? — receive a Riedel glass, three tastings at each winery, hors d’oeuvres, and a bottle of wine from one of the participating wineries.

According to the tour press release, the event offers the chance to “[d]iscover the diversity, complexity and extraordinary quality of the locally made wines that call Dallas home.”

Hors d’oeuvres at each location include fare from Rex’s Seafood, Mozzarella Company, Kathleen’s Sky Diner, among others.

The Greyhound Adoption League, or GALT, is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, all-volunteer group dedicated to placing all greyhounds, primarily those that competed and trained for racing, into loving homes.

GALT facilitates the adoption of greyhounds by providing kennel services and foster homes along with their medical needs, including spay and neuter, assisting them in the transition from track-life to home-life, and educating the public about why the greyhound has been a favored companion dog for more than 4,000 years.

None of the dogs available for adoption is that old, not even in dog years.

    I have been to the Wine Trail three times and it is one of the greatest weekend activities we have in Dallas. I already have my tickets for this one.
