Their weekly wine tastings are terrifiic. How terrific? I drive over an hour to taste at Farpointe rather than the numerous much closer veneus.

Honestly, the store has a broad range of prices and wine styles, and they will track down that obscure bottle your friend told you about. The wine bar is staffed with knowledgeable people who can help you choose what you might like to explore, recommend a tasting flight, or give you some privacy if you prefer. After a couple of visits they remember your name as well as your wine preferences. There may be a better wine bar - but I haven't found one.

I've been going to Farpointe for a couple of years now, and it has rarely disappointed. The store has a wide selection of wines, many of which you won't find at other wine specialty stores. The staff is a knowledgeable collection of people who truly enjoy wines and are happy to listen to what your tastes are and point you to some treasures you might have otherwise overlooked.

The bistro has a solid list of menu wines available throughout the week, along with snack sized dishes of cheeses, meats and other selections. The real fun is on the weekends, though. Every weekend they offer three different flights: two flights of five wines, and one "bonus" flight of higher end wines, usually all following a weekly theme. Wineries and winemakers regularly visit the bistro during the week when they feature flights of their wines and special prices, and on Thursday nights they have "BYOP", bring your own pizza night with bottle discounts. It's worth getting on their email list to find out what special events are coming up. Their patio area is a popular spot to enjoy nice weather and some good wines. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, managed by a certified sommelier.

My husband and I love Farpointe. The wine selection is amazing, the staff is like family, and the food portions for the price are out of this world. You really get the feeling of "Cheers" when you walk into Farpointe. The staff knows you by name and always remembers your favorite glass of wine, and are always more than helpful and willing to go out of their way to make each and every experience more wonderful than the last. We recommend Farpointe to all of our friends and family.

I'm not sure what wine bistro some of these reviewers were at, but it certainly isn't the Farpointe I have enjoyed for over two years. The flights are generous. The staff if young, friendly and knowledgable. A single women can come in alone and feel safe and welcome. This is, and will continue to be, why first choice when I think of a wine experience.

I read both reviews and thought maybe this place had gotten its act together and improved from the review in 2007. I was wrong. Staff was very unfriendly and wine on their flights were bad. The two of us each chose a different flight so we could try twice the wine. Out of the 10 SMALL samples we were given for $20. none were worth a second full glass even if it were free. With so many good wineries in Grapevine area it is no wonder this place was almost empty. Will not be on my list to every go back or suggest anyone else to go there.
