Boston Entertainment District has been “officially” around only since late last year. However, these 4 couples have been friends for years. When the Chamber was concerned about all the time involved with the planning and execution of the Pioneer Days, this group of people volunteered to handle it for the Chamber. And handle it they did!! It was an outstanding 9 day event and everything went according to plan.
Heard a great comment from one of the members – “Many times we’re just hanging out in someone’s living room, and an idea will come up and we’ll discuss it in a great casual atmosphere. From that informal discussion, we can plan and achieve our goals of providing good family entertainment for New Boston and the surrounding areas.” What a great group!

RED ROAD VINEYARD AND WINERY, 105 West Front Street, Naples, Texas 75568 located in the rich Northeast region of Texas, is proudly producing high quality wines of the sweet, semi-sweet, dry and port varieties. The award-winning tradition of Vintner Merrill Grove is expertly crafted, beautifully aromatic wines that thrill the senses and take wine lovers on a journey of discovery.
All Red Road Vineyard & Winery deep, full-bodied wines offer a pure clarity of flavor that will impress even the most selective of wine drinkers. Red Road’s variety of labels are produced at the 77-acre farm near Marrietta, Texas. They are aged, stored and available at our historic ice house location near the downtown square of Naples, Texas, as well as five other retail locations.
Our journey began in 2001. Owner Merrill Grove bravely jumped in on the Texas Wine scene, planting his first blocks of vines, 4,000 Blanc Du Bois in all. His dream was to create quality wines that would thrill the senses. This is still his passion, as he continues to barrel ahead, creating an impressive menu of labels for every variety of wine lover. Red Road Vineyard & Winery, now in its 21st year of operation, boasts an abundant collection of award-winning sweet, semi-sweet, dry, port and signature blends made with the finest quality grapes, grown in the rich soil of Northeast Texas. The vineyard is located on a 77-acre farm in nearby Marietta. His property was purchased in 1990 and was partially cleared at the establishment of the wine venture. A quaint farmhouse adorns the center of the property and lush, green landscape surrounds.
The vintner grows a variety of traditional Blanc du Bois, sweet and spicy Cynthiana Norton, deep dark Texas native Lenior and herbaceous Seyval Blanc. “Working in small lots you have a lot more control than large volumes so things can be more personalized,” Grove explained. “The ability to hold wine until you think it’s ready for release. Every individual has a different palette. Wines of the Red Road portfolio have their own unique characteristics within the parameters of the grape varietal characteristics that I prefer.” According to Grove, his Blanc du Bois, Lenior and Cynthiana vines ripen beautifully in the humid climate of the piney woods region as they are disease resistant. Mouth-filling flavors, low amount of tannins, mineral richness and impressive clarity are the signature taste of Red Road Vineyard & Winery.
The next major addition to Red Road Vineyard was the winery and tasting room. Grove invested in the historic location in 2004, where he now houses his tasting room, cellar and a portion of the winemaking operation. This 5,600 square foot facility, located beside the tracks near downtown square and adjacent the Town Center Gazebo. The original brick structure, built in the 1890’s, once housed the Northeast Texas Power Ice Company. The building was last operational in the 1960’s as part of SWEPCO Power Company.
After restoration, the venue found new life as the Red Road Vineyard & Winery. With tasting room and the potential of hosting small events, we are Open: Thursday and Friday 3 PM – 7 PM; Saturday noon – 6 PM; Sunday noon – 5 PM
