A Tasting Room with Flair
Peachy Canyon’s tasting room has a history. It is located in the Old Bethel School House, which was built in 1886. There is a white motif in the tasting room and surrounding area. A 20-foot tall white beach chair is out front, a white gazebo is a centerpiece of the outdoor area, white picnic tables dot the garden area, and much of the tasting room, including the wine bar, is painted white.
As you step up to the bar, you can take a look at the trivia questions of the day, for example:
What is the nickname of Jay Z’s champagne label?
Armand de Brignac, Ace of Spades, Axiom of Bees, or Art of Bey
True or false — Reserve wines have been aged for 10 years or more?
Don’t forget to take a look at the art on the walls. You might see Will Bulas’ metal infused art. The pictures feature frogs holding martinis, a lion sipping wine and a sea otter relaxing with a glass of wine. Each of the pictures are playful and colorful.
