Harvesting time for local winery

Driving to Della Terra Farm’s winery in Rains County can be a tricky prospect but winery owners David and Deborah Walker have made it easy to find by putting out roads signs on Saturdays. The signs guide drivers down the winding roads with beautiful scenery until they reach Della Terra Farm, an approximately 15-minute drive from Emory, going north on Hwy. 19.

Every Saturday from 1:00-6:00 p.m., the Walkers open their winery to the public. Visits are also available by appointment. Guests can taste samples of wine and order hors d’oeuvres such as spinach artichoke dip or an antipasti platter.

Driving up to the winery, there is a breath-taking backdrop of the Walkers’ Tuscan home and rows and rows of vines. Visitors pull into an area near the front of the property and are led into a cool, comfortable, inviting room with a long table and chairs.

    I had a superb time picking the grapes! I didn’t feel like I was in Texas. It was if we were transported to another place and time. Thank you Deborah and David for a great experience. I look forward to helping again!

    Very good vineyard development. While I’m just starting grape growing and suffering the issues found in woody, wet and hot East Texas, the results at Della Terra are inspiring. And a very large harvest. Congratulations.
