GLOBE – After years of toil, Globe’s first and only vineyard and winery, the Waggin’ Vineyard & Estate, celebrated its ribbon cutting Thursday, Jan. 2 with help from the business’ mascot, Sancho the dog, who insists that the offerings will make your tail wag.

Sancho was joined by owners Daisy Flores and Timothy Trent, who welcomed the public to enjoy the signature winery in Globe.

After a trip to Flores’ uncle’s vineyard in France in 2011, Trent stared out from the deck behind their home at the hillside and imagined it full of grapevines. Thus, the seed was planted and the idea for Waggin’ Vineyard & Estate begun. 

Through years of hard work and cultivation, the winery is now supplied with seven wines and sports its own unique brand of blended reds, including Sweet Madame (Cabernet, Shiraz), Bandita Red (Petit Verdot), Globe’s Delicate Red (Merlot, Cabernet, Shiraz), and Zinful Red (Merlot/Zinfandel) as well as its own brand of whites, including Globe’s Gold (Chardonnay), Fetch (Marsanne), and Gate’s Open (Mavasia, Grenache Blanc, Pic Poul). A food menu is also forthcoming to pair with the wines.
