Homestead Winery is the oldest continually operating winery in the Red River Valley of North Texas. Barb and Gabe Parker started Homestead desiring to continue the Parker family farming tradition begun in North Texas by Gabe's grandfather more than 100 years ago. When the vineyard was planted, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes replaced the traditional wheat and corn in the rich, fertile soils of Ivanhoe. Today, grapes are brought in from various growers to create a wide variety of wines. Wine making is under the experienced direction of Dr. Roy Mitchell.

In addition to our Ivanhoe facility, our winery in historic downtown Denison, bottles Sherry, Port and Red Wine. The Denison tasting room offers visitors an opportunity to sample and purchase our wines. Denison enjoys a rich history in wine making. In 1880, Denison's T.V. Munson helped save France's vineyards by sending thousands of bundles of North Texas grape rootstocks to the Charante Region of France. French scientists and grape growers grafted their native grape varieties to our disease-resistant rootstocks. To this day, Denison enjoys a special Sister City relationship with Cognac, France.

While both the Ivanhoe and Denison facilities are located about an hour North of Dallas, visitors to the Dallas and Fort Worth area can also sample and purchase our wines at our tasting room in Grapevine, Texas. It is situated in a 1890s Victorian home just off historic Main Street.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
