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,
you've got it covered with Caduceus... Maynard makes some cool stuff and his involvement with AZVA is truly impressive.
The property at Paige Springs is really nice and worth going. Something about sitting on the edge of Oak Creek, Drinking Rose and throwing horse shoes is pretty dope.
If you do decide to go south, go the ones Troy suggested, along with Bodega Pierce.
If you need an in, message me.
I've heard nothing but nice things about Paige Springs
One Google Map search, and I already adore this area! I agree with Jason that a glass of rose with a game of horseshoes sounds like a spectacular time. It's even better that it's only 15 minutes away from Cottonwood!
