AZ Wine Country
There’s no need to travel to California to enjoy some of the best wines in the West. Just a day-trip away from our private golf course community and stretching from the northern part of the state in the Sedona Verde Valley region to the southern tip of Tucson. Arizona’s wine scene has flourished in recent years and 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 the Sedona Verde Valley winery overview.
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 are several wine tasting rooms open to the public. For more information on wine tasting tours in the southern part of the state, visit the Southern Arizona Guide’s winery roundup.
