Your Guide to Arizona Wine Country

Friday, April 22, 2016

There’s no need to travel to California to enjoy some of the best wines in the West.  Stretching from the northern part of the state in the Sedona Verde Valley region to the southern tip of Tucson, Arizona is becoming nationally-known for producing stellar wine. We’ve noted a few of our favorite wineries below. 


Just outside of Sedona is the Echo Canyon Winery, one of the first in the area. Page Springs Cellars Oak Creek Vineyards and Javelina Leap are just a short drive away as well. Just along I-17, in the Verde Valley, you’ll find Alcantara Vineyards and San Dominique Winery.  Head to the former mining town of Jerome to check out the Jerome Winery, featuring more than 30 handcrafted wines.  For the stories behind each of these vineyards and a deeper look at what the area has to offer check out http://www.sedonaverdevalley.org/attractionshighlights/wineriesandvineyards.html.

 

Southern Arizona is also making a name for itself in the wine community. According to southernarizonaguide.com there are two primary wine growing areas in southern Arizona. The Sonoita-Elgin wineries are the oldest and closest in proximity to Tucson. Wilcox is an up and coming location for wineries and within the town several wine tasting rooms are open to the public.

If staying close to home to enjoy your favorite cabernet or chardonnay sounds more appealing, head on over to the new Presidio wine and beer café. The 18,000 square resident’s club also boasts a teaching/demonstration kitchen, great room with a fireplace, fitness facility teen area and much more.
