Big Creek Vineyard Relocates Jim Thorpe Shoppe
We are relocating our Jim Thorpe Shoppe! On February 25th, we will begin our move from 27 Race Street to our new location at the Historic Hooven Mercantile Building at 41 Susquehanna Street, right next to the Train Station.
We are so excited for this change, as we will be able to offer so much more to our patrons in our new larger space. Leaving the Race Street community and our home of the past 12 years is bittersweet, but change is unavoidable at times and we’re embracing this big step in our lives and business.
We will be offering an expanded selection as well as wine by the glass at the renovated, historic spice mill known as the Hooven Building, as well as a few surprises we can’t yet divulge.
Everything is going smoothly with the move. Renovations are being finished up at the Hooven Building currently and we can honestly say it is looking fabulous. Once renovations are complete, we can construct our bar and start fully moving in. We're reluctant to publish a hard open date right at this moment - never know what's going to happen, but are working towards just a couple of weeks and definitely before the awesome annual Jim Thorpe Earth Day celebration. Thank you so much for everyone's words of encouragement and enthusiasm, it is so great to hear the same excitement we express on a daily basis echoed back to us. We seriously cannot wait to get the shoppe open to you.
Big Creek Vineyard
Wine, perhaps more than any one thing, has an intense sense of place, origin and belonging. Where it comes from is all important. We often use the nebulous, untranslatable French term “Terroir” to try and identify everything that contributes to the taste of a wine. From where the vineyard is located, to the variety of grape and how it is grown, to the conditions the winemaker tries to impose on the ever evolving wine.
We like to broaden the brush stroke. The social and natural landscape of the vineyard and its surroundings most definitely impact the way the taste of a wine is perceived. And perhaps, the most important player in our “Terroir” is our customer’s input, their tastes and preferences, and how they will influence a wine in a future vintage.
We are always available for comment, criticism or accolade, either in person or through modern media. So plan a visit, soon.
