Wine tastings at Hops & Vines are a little different than most places.
Alright, they’re a lot different than most places! Shannon Zouzoulas, co-founder and chatterbox extraordinaire, hosts with a variety of our friends, helpers, and kids. Besides our excellent wine list, you’ll find a lot of things in our tasting room that you won’t in other wineries:
- The Wishing Barrel
- The Famous Green Door – We purchased this amazing wood door from Alf Taylor in Tucson, and if you ask Shannon nicely she will tell you all about it.
- Jack Kerouac and Frida Kahlo quotes painted on the walls – Quotes which directly inspired Hops & Vines to make the jump from fantasy to reality.
- Cheetos – Our wines can be paired with these amazing cheesy poofs. But don’t take our word for it. Come on down and have a handful or seven.
You’ll also notice one thing that is definitely not present: A bad attitude.
We like people! We love wine! We’re not going to stick out pinkies or give you a dour look if you don’t know everything about wine. And if you do know everything about wine, we love talking about that, too!
Your kids are welcome – we have a petting zoo, friendly faces and our pets. You can tell bawdy stories and make bad puns because we probably will, too. Your pets are also welcome, although we highly recommend a leash – this is the country, after all, and we would hate to have your relaxing wine tour interrupted by chasing a pet across three miles of open fields.
More than anything, we just want you to feel relaxed and to have a good time. Whether that’s relaxing on our amazing patio, telling stories at the counter, sipping our fine wines, or watching the kids play, we want you to remember Hops & Vines as a place you felt at home.
