New Tasting Room!
Javelina Leap Vineyards just expanded their tasting room. A large dark wood bar and gold ceiling make the tasting room an inviting place to enjoy wine. In addition to the new bar and larger tasting room space they will now display art work from local artists.
Sally Murphy is the first local artist to have her work displayed in the tasting room. In addition to being an artist Sally also works in the Javelina Leap tasting room.
"Sally's work has a living yet ancient quality and just like grape vines they have a deep rooted history." says owner and assistant winemaker Cynthia Snapp who is an artist herself. "Her paintings often include twisted tree trunks and tormented roots that enveloping and wind their way around earth and rock, reminding us of our own unique terrain here in the Verde Valley. " It's the struggle of the grape vines that give the wine character " says owner and winemaker Rod Snapp.
