Grapevine is a city and suburb in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex located in the U.S. state of Texas . The city is almost entirely located in northeast Tarrant County , with small portions extending into neighboring Dallas and Denton counties.  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”.
