The HOPS this year are going to be different – different in that we are NOW including HOPS! That’s right – this year, we are now expanding our wine hop to include one special craft brewery. Our friends at Belle Nicho Winery are retiring and to take their place, we have invited what we feel is another one of us – unique, craft, family owned and fun – MICA TOWN BREWING!
The rules of the HOP are still the same - Blaze your own trail in the Catawba Valley. Each winery/brewery will have a sample of a different beverage/food pairing! Start your journey by collecting your hop card & commemorative glass at any of the participating wineries/breweries below. Then sip away and enjoy your bite as you collect a stamp at all four establishments.
Collect all 4 commerative glasses:
Say Cheese March 17th, 2019
Very Berry June 9th, 2019
You Bacon Me Hungry September 22nd, 2019
Joy to Chocolate December 15th, 2019
By visiting all four venues, you will also be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate. All participating wineries are conveniently located off I-40 between exits 86 & 100.
