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,
The trip to Verde Valley was a success! Notes below for the next person looking for recommendations. I flew into Prescott Regional and then drove over Mingus Mountain to Jerome. That drive was stunning.
The Arizona Vignerons Alliance seems to be working toward an AVA for Verde Valley. Am interested to see what happens in the next years. Cheers!
