The Classic Water to Wine Tour
Combine the fun of a float trip down the Verde River with a wine tour of the Alcantara Vineyards.
Combine the fun of a Ducky Kayak trip on the Verde River with wine tasting at the Alcantara Vineyards and you get the idea…the best of two worlds.
The Classic Water to Wine tour begins with a one hour Ducky Kayak trip on a scenic stretch of the Verde River with just enough chutes and riffles to add a bit of excitement without ruffling any feathers. Your Ducky Kayak trip ends in the shade of giant Cottonwood trees where you will take the gravel path up through the vineyards to the Tuscan farmhouse at the Alcantara Vineyards for your wine tasting delight.
The Alcantara Vineyards is a favorite on the Verde Valley Wine Trail featuring award winning wines and friendly sommeliers who guide you through the tasting. The Wine Tasting room inside the Tuscan Farmhouse overlooks the vineyards and the rolling hills beyond.
The Classic Water to Wine Tour features great photo ops, fabulous scenery, abundant wildlife, and excellent wine. You even get a credit for purchasing wine or gift shop mementos. The Classic Water to Wine tour is truly an unforgettable experience.
