grapes 300x222 Verde River Valley Wine ToursArizona Wine?  Who would have thought?

Sit back & relax while we plan your perfect afternoon in the Verde River Valley.  Arizona’s wine country with two fantastic wine tours to choose from.

 

Choose From 2 Different Tours

The Wine Tasting or  The Vineyard Tour

The Verde River Valley is definitely on the map as an up and coming wine producing region and we have two wine tasting tours and we do all the driving. So you can just relax and enjoy the scenery and wine tasting experience.

The Verde River Valley has similarities to some of the great wine producing regions in the world. It has the sunshine and heat to develop great fruit. The valley also has the unique rocky soils that help the vines produce fruit with great flavors and concentration. These soils and stressful growing conditions force the vines to struggle to survive. This struggle causes the vines to put their energy into developing less abundant but higher quality, more intensely flavored fruit – just the characteristics the winemaker wants to craft great wine.

Over the past 9 years the Verde Valley has seen the birth of vineyards and wineries nestled in between the communities of Cottonwood, Jerome, Clarkdale, Camp Verde and Sedona.

 

The Wine Tasting Tour48wineworks 225x300 Verde River Valley Wine Tours
