FROM THE TASTING ROOM
It has been a crazy summer!
Our 3rd Annual Cornhole Tournament was HOT, but fun. The Buzynski’s once again crushed the competition, second year in a row!
Bad Decisions what can we say… we survived!
Upcoming Events we’re looking forward to:
The Great Crush Festival- September 6th
Oktoberfest- October 11th
Deck the Halls- November 29th
Wine & Cookie Pairing
FROM THE VINEYARD
Farmer Mike harvested our Muscat, Malvasia, and Grenache Blanc.
We got a 1/2 ton, which is 55 gallons, which is one barrel. We plan to harvest the rest around the end of September. So far no snake sitings… hopefully I didn’t just jinx us.
FROM THE WINERY
FROM THE FUTURE BREWERY
This years Oktoberfest at AZ Hops and Vines is going to be one momentous occasion! After so many months of hard work, and being denied multiple times for our brew license, we will be heading up to Phoenix this week to the liquor board to attempt getting our license once again. We know that we have so many followers of this law and our beer license progress, we can’t thank you enough for your support (and your patience!). The fourth time is the charm! Light some candles for us that the license goes through next week! In the hopes of approval, we wanted to give you a little preview of our first beer that, fingers crossed, you will finally be able to try at this years Oktoberfest!! We will be introducing an amber ale brewed by Christiana Bockisch called “El Conquistador”! El Conquistador is a clear amber ale utilizing pure El Dorado hops. These particular hops on the nose are grass, pear, and a medley of tropical fruits. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation, this beer is sure to give you plenty of notes of acute citrus and grassy hop bitterness reinforced by a nice biscuit and toffee malt backbone. It finishes crisp, bitter and acrid with lingering kisses of toffee and butterscotch. We want you to enjoy this beer as much as we do! We are so proud to announce this lovely ale being our very first, and cannot wait to share it with you! So again, please light those candles and cross your fingers that everything goes well in Phoenix next week!!
