Their tasting room features a wood burning stove, a copper wine bar and lots of large windows to enjoy sipping wine and enjoying the views of the vineyard, or take a stroll onto their deck to bring the wine tasting experience outside. Hopewell Winery is a prime example of how modern farming techniques ensure open space can be preserved, productive, and available to the community.

That is a great idea!

I hope that becomes a trend. I can see lots of potential for many people. Keeps things fun and personal.

Good luck with that!
