Final funding push - Hoppin' Grapes Beer and Wine on Kickstarter.com

We are launching our final push for funding our beer and wine bar project through www.kickstarter.com  This final push will give us the funds we need to open Sierra Vista's only beer and wine tasting bar called Hoppin' Grapes.  Our project is almost complete.

Will you help us out?  Help us bring Arizona wines and beers as well as a wide selection of new world wines and craft beers to Sierra Vista Arizona.  Help support local commerce and keep money in our community through supporing our project.  We plan to "buy local" whenever possible.  Locally roasted coffees in our pot, locally produced produce items in our retail section, locally produced wines on our menu!

Take a look at our project and tell us what you think. For more information Click Here! or follow the link below to view our project  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1039757368/hoppin-grapes-beer-and-wine-tasting-bar-sierra-vis

Check out our video we put together to show you what we have done so far.

Thanks!  Hoppin' Grapes Beer and Wine Tasting Bar Sierra Vista Arizona.

Willcox Wine Country Festival in Willcox, Arizona

We are always excited to head off to explore some great Southwest Arizona wines during the Willcox Wine Country Festival.  Every year, Willcox hosts this awesome event during the months of May and October.  Last year we started with the new Flying Leap Vineyards tasting room located at 105 N. Railroad Avenue in Willcox, Arizona. 

Months prior, we first visited Flying Leap Vineyards at 342 Elgin Road in Elgin, AZ and enjoyed not only the wines but the story behind the vineyard.  You will have to visit yourself and talk with the owners about their unique story and business venture!

Other than the new Flying Leap Tasting Room in Willcox, AZ we always hope to revisit with Coronado Vineyards, Willcox, AZ.  Every year their wines impress us, as we discussed in our previous review, but we were really excited to finally sample some of the raved about fare from their onsite Tapas & Wine Lounge
Kristine worked hard to provide you with a mini-guide to tasting wines in the Willcox area and visiting the different vineyards and tasting rooms.  To take a look at the post and save yourself valuable time and hassle navigating Willcox, Click Here!

As we look to expand the selection of wines we plan to offer at our own Hoppin' Grapes Wine and Beer Tasting Shop in Sierra Vista, AZ, this festival allows us to sample some of the wines and consider inclusion.  Do you have a favorite we should try while we visit Willcox?  Let us know!

Interested in joining us as we explore the greater Willcox area?  Comment below or email us at hoppingrapes@gmail.com and maybe we can meet in Willcox for a tasting!  - Hoppin' Grapes.
