Sedona Arizona Wine Tasting Experience
Wine Tours of Sedona is pleased to offer our first tour through exclusively through Airbnb, our brand new tour, Sedona Arizona Wine Tasting Experience showcasing Sedona’s best wine tasting rooms. All tours begin at Decanter Tasting Room (in The Collective) in Sedona’s Village of Oak Creek. There you will meet your tour guide, Jim Reich, the owner of Wine Tours of Sedona.
Decanter Wine Tasting Room offers a great starting point to tempt your palate. Choose between a red or white flight plus a charcuterie platter (meat, cheese, nuts) and the fun begins! From there, we head north into Sedona to Tlaquepaque to visit VinoZona, nestled amoung the cobblestone walkways connecting the area’s unique shops, boutiques, and galleries. While there, you have the option of a white, red, or sweet wine flight, again getting to explore wines from all across the AZ state. Next, we wander over to the Hyatt Pinion Pointe Shops to enjoy the wines at The Art of Wine. Jonathan, Brian, and there friendly staff will educate you about the wines that make Arizona such a vibrant wineproducing state. You’ll get to enjoy either a white, red, sweet, or mead flight. Next our final stop is Winery 1912 where you’ll get to enjoy the flavors of John McLoughlin’s wine making talent. Enjoy not only the wines but stunning views of Munds Mountain and Snoopy Rock.
This is a four hour tour and includes wine sampling from 3-4 of the above mentioned tasting rooms.
ALCANTARA ESTATE VINEYARDS
This amazing tour takes you to one of the most pristine and beautiful settings, Alcantara Vineyard, the most beautiful estate vineyard of the region. The vineyard produces about 25 different wines annually, ranging from dry whites, unique red blends, and even some dessert wines..
The property is the confluence of the Oak Creek and the Verde River. This connection point of two waterways, the confluence, inspired the name for one of Alcantara Vineyard’s finest wines, the Confluence.
In the limestone cliffs adjacent to where these rivers meet, you will see cliff dwellings dating back to the Anasazi and Sinagua Indian cultures. With an onsite wedding chapel and it’s own private beach on the Verde River, there is so much more than wine here.
This is a three hour tour and includes one VIP wine tasting and one charcuterie or antipasto plate per adult. No substitutions granted.
A Multi-Vineyard & Winery Experience
For those of you wanting to enjoy local wines at the vineyard locations of northern Arizona, this is your perfect tour. We take you to the heart of northern Arizona wine country, the “Page Springs” area of Cornville. This experience allows you to visit two of these vineyards, among them are DA Ranch, Javelina Leap Vineyard, or Oak Creek Vineyard.
As we head west out of Sedona, you will get to enjoy the beauty of some of Sedona’s majestic red rock formations. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking!
This is a 3 hour tour (like Gilligan’s Island :-0) including two wine tasting flights per person. You may add lunch to your tour for an additional charge.
Wine, Food, Spirits & Shopping in "Old Town"
Old Town Cottonwood is the historic area of Cottonwood, the center of the Verde Valley Wine Trail and northern Arizona wine country. Nestled in about a five-block stretch are some of the areas finest restaurants, wine tasting rooms and an array of interesting shops, galleries and antique stores. There’s even the old Cottonwood jail whose jails cells came off a Navy ship.
During the tour, you will have the choice of visiting two of the area’s seven tasting rooms. There’s wine for everyone’s palate on this tour plus some of the most delicious restaurants in the area if you wish to add lunch or dinner to your tour.
Personally, as the owner of Wine tours of Sedona Burning Tree Cellars is one of my absolute favorite wineries inn the area! Their wines are amazing. Then across the street you have Arizona Stronghold, the state’s largest vineyard, owned by Eric Glomoski who also owns Page Springs Cellars. Sam Pillsbury has a fine red, white, and sweet selection at Pillsbury Winery. Prior to making wine, he was a Hollywood movie director. Then you have Winery 101 and Carlson Creek Vineyards. And the newest tasting room to open up is Tantrum Wines with a wonderful selection of wines and unique flare to their tasting room. If you are hungry, we highly recommend Merkin Vineyards and Wine Tasting Osteria where they have delicious handmade pasta and the entire selection of Arizona’s Merkin Vineyards line of wines. I recommend the Tarzan Red, an absolutely delicious Tempranillo.
This three hour tour allows you to enjoy two wine tasting flights from the tasting rooms above, and you may add lunch or dinner to further compliment your experience.
The Flavors of Historic Jerome
Prior to Arizona becoming a state in 1912, Jerome was one of the wildest towns in Arizona. Today, Jerome is considered a “ghost town” and it is quite a happening town with great restaurants (our favorite is The Haunted Hamburger), interesting and unique galleries, unusual architecture, historic buildings, a “sliding” jail, a haunted hotel, an interesting mining museum, and more. Although the population of Jerome is only about 450 residents; there is no gas station or grocery store, but there are two cool bars in which to meet the real locals and six wine tasting rooms.
If you are a fan of the bands Tool, Pucifer, or A Perfect Circle, you will want to visit James Maynard Keenan’s place Caduceus Cellars or Four Eight Wineworks, named because Arizona is the 48th state to enter the union. Vino Zona offers wines from all across the state while The Original Jerome Winery has a diverse selection of wines from six different labels including absolutely delicious ports. Passion Cellars and Salvatore Vineyards share their wines under one roof with their sister winery, Cabel Cellars being located just down the road.
This is a four hour tour and includes wine tasting flights from three of the above mentioned tasting rooms. If you wish to add lunch or dinner to enhance your wine tasting experience, we are delighted to do so for an additional charge. There are plenty of delicious options to meet your dietary preferences.
