I acquired a nice little group of grape vines growing on the south side of the property when I purchased the house four years ago. A friend was very interested in the hearty grape crop of 2008, and asked if he could experiment with making wine from the beautiful tasty grapes. I agreed that it was an intriguing idea and thus Hound's Roo Estate Vineyards - In the heart of downtown Salt Lake City was born.
