Kingman's own Napa Valley is starting to bloom. Stetson Winery will open its doors to the public this weekend in Valle Vista.

The scenic vineyard and event center will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday at 10965 Moonscape Way.

"We are proud of this big red barn and Jo and I are anxious to share it with the community," said Don Stetson.

The winery broke ground on its tasting room and event center more than a year ago. Stetson is the second winery to open in the Valle Vista area. Cella Winery, which is located nearby, was the first.

The 6,500 square-foot facility features a tasting room with a 40-foot bar, custom wine barrel tables crafted by a local artist and a shop. Outdoors, it has a 130-foot veranda with a pavilion and patio with a fireplace.

The first crop of 800 grape vines was planted in May. However, the winery won't be bottling juice from its grapes for a few years. It takes two to three years for the vines to mature, Stephens said. In the meantime, the winery will use juice from other Arizona wineries.

After this weekend, the winery will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays. It will be open Monday through Thursday by appointment only.

Stephens warned that the address is not marked on most GPS units or Google maps yet. To reach the winery, take Route 66 to Valle Vista's Concho Drive. Follow Concho Drive all the way to the end and then make a right on Painted Rock. After driving a mile on Painted Rock, turn left onto Brooks Boulevard. Drive another 1.5 miles and look for a big red barn to your right.

For holiday hours or more information, call (928) 757-7206.
