Hello, other Guildees,
In celebration of graduating with my bachelor's degree in August, I'm planning to take a trip to Arizona in September or October.
I will be flying into Pheonix, and have planned on going North towards Cottonwood/Jerome in the Verde Valley. The plan is to stop at the Merkin Osteria tasting room in Scottsdale, followed by the Merkin Osteria tasting room in Cottonwood along with both the Caduceus Cellars and Four Eight Wineworks tasting room in Jerome.
The purpose of this message is to ask what other vineyards/winery tours along with tasting rooms would you all recommend?
Thank you in advance,
I’d check out Rune, Dos Cabezas and Callaghan Vineyards to get a good expression of Arizona wine. All located up North
Great suggestions, but those three are in Southern AZ (Sonoita/Elgin)
Second the Rune recommendation; my best friend makes wine in Willcox but I'm unsure what his label is called since he's mostly just been consulting.
Correct! My mistake, I also need to make it back down to Wilcox.
Third for Rune. James makes excellent wine.
