Good news for all you out of towners… we are now SHIPPING!! Only half or full cases. This is a great way to have a little bit of Hops & Vines at your table in between you trips down to Sonoita. We now have gift cards available in the tasting room. They can be purchased here in person, or over the phone. These make nice gifts for a loved one or anyone hosting a holiday party. On December 7th, we debuted the Gluwein, our german christmas wine and it is already almost sold out. Get some now before it’s all gone for the season. Thanks to you all spreading the word about our winery, we were fortunate to be featured in the October issue of Sunset Magazine as well as in Arizona Daily Star earlier this month. Shannon is still single and waiting to be fixed up… for inquiries or applications please stop by the tasting room.

Save the date for our up coming events:

From the winery…

We are so excited to release the following in 2014,

Gracias, a Petite Syrah. An elegant grape variety. A descendant of the noble Syrah but much darker in color with a noticeable brightness Syrah lacks. Hints of plum, tobacco with a herbal nose. Pairs well with peppered steak, macaroni and cheese, and fondue. Drink this wine in the spirit it was made – with the people you appreciate. $25 per bottle ($22 case price)

The Lobbyist, a Zinfandel. A robust and full bodied wine full of red fruit, spice, pepper, and tar. You will find complex aromas of chocolate, cedar, and blackcurrant. Pairs well with lamb and a one night stand. $25 per bottle ($22 case price)

The Temptress, a Tempranillo. Native to Spain, ruby red in color with aromas and flavors of berries, plum, tobacco, vanilla, leather, and herb. Pairs well with grilled meats, pork, cheddar cheese, and Cristiano Ronaldo. $25 per bottle ($22 case price)

Farmer Megan began wearing clothes in the vineyard due to the cold weather. She also started taking cuttings for new plantings next year. More hops have also been planted, next year we should have the very first Arizona grown and made beer. Look for that at Oktoberfest.
