Bad Decisions make good stories.

Bad Decisions, an epic event that came about when we combined our love of all things divine: beer, bacon, wine, chocolate, and cheese… pretty much all of the five food groups.

And if that wasn’t enough, we decided to go big and have a meteor shower (the only winery who has meteor showers for their customers).

This event will be LIFE CHANGING. Come make some history with us!

Spring Update

FROM THE VINEYARD

 

Megan and Farmer Mike are very excited about how awesome the vineyard is looking in it’s 4th year. Keep your fingers crossed that we do not get hit with a late frost, hail, or fire! The vines are full of fruit and we will work hard to take good care of these babies. We are also thrilled to have successfully propagated the native AZ Hops as well as Cascade and Chinnok.

 

Something cool and new that we have decided to try with the vines is head pruning. It will create more shade as well as protect the fruit from the wind… not to mention it will look cool.

FROM THE WINERY

 

We will be bottling an incredible Chardonnay with notes of honeysuckle, butter, and citrus… which we hope to release on Mother’s Day… and it will be called Mother Love.
