Nestled in and amongst Bisbee’s famous art galleries, restaurants and romantic inns is Flying Leap Vineyards’ Bisbee tasting room and fine art gallery, located downtown on historic Main Street just a few hundred feet up the sidewalk from Café Roka (just next door to the Bisbee Grand Hotel). The beautiful tasting room is located on the first floor of Bisbee’s historic Elks Lodge, which was built in 1910. There is convenient parking across the street and a lovely, spacious entry stairway and reception foyer, which we use to host various local musical talent from time to time. The tasting room and gallery are a wonderful Bisbee activity for visitors; a place to enjoy our award-winning, locally crafted Arizona wines and view many fine pieces of artwork from renowned local and regional artists.
The fine art gallery by TRUST Art & Design features bold, modern, original works by talented artists from near and far. Each piece is carefully chosen by Thomas & Kim Johnson, collection curators and owners of TRUST. TRUST artwork is available for viewing and purchase during tasting room hours, but private viewings are also available by contacting TRUST Art & Design directly.
Bisbee, 90 miles southeast of Tucson and nestled amongst the Mule Mountains, is the picturesque county seat of historic Cochise County, Arizona. The community was founded in 1880 and named after Judge DeWitt Bisbee, a financial backer of the Copper Queen Mine.
Once known as “the Queen of the Copper Camps”, this Old West mining camp proved to be one of the richest mineral sites in the world, producing nearly three million ounces of gold and more than eight billion pounds of copper. Today, the original city of Bisbee is known as “Old Bisbee”, and is home to a thriving downtown cultural scene. Old Bisbee is also noted for its architecture, including its Victorian-style houses and elegant Art Deco courthouse. Because its plan was laid out before the automobile, Old Bisbee has an almost European feel, and it is one of Arizona’s most romantic walking cities due to its curved, narrow streets, walking paths and turn of the century architecture.
