Wikipedia: Grapevine, Texas
Grapevine is a city in northeast Tarrant County, Texas, United States located within the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. As of the 2010 census the city population was 46,334. The city’s moniker is derived from the native grapes prevalent in the area. In recent years several wineries have opened in Grapevine, and the city has been very active in maintaining its historic downtown corridor. The city is adjacent to Grapevine Lake, a large reservoir impounded by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1952 and serves as both a source of water and recreational area. Part of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is located within Grapevine city limits, the largest portion of any municipality bordering the facility. In 2007 CNNMoney.com rated Grapevine as one of “America’s Best Places to Live.”

Grapevine Texas - So Sad to read about the Tragedy in Grapevine Texas to-day ! 7 people found dead ! My thoughts are with the family of the dead and all our Special friends in Grapevine Texas.
Grapevine Texas is home of Dallas Fort Worth Airport and is a Twinned Area of West Lothian.
Grapeviners have enjoyed hospitality at Kingsfield GC and their band played at the Marches a few years ago ! Our Friend PW MacCallum of Grapevine was a Guest of the Fraternity of Dyers in Riding the Marches recently.
So , so sad for the City !
