Sedona & Verde Valley Wine Tasting Tour from Phoenix

Sedona & Verde Valley Wine Tasting Tour from Phoenix

Sedona and the Verde Valley are ideal places to grow wine grapes and make delicious wine. The Verde Valley Wine Trail invites wine enthusiasts to experience a destination rich in history, beauty, and the production of exquisite wines.

Some people find this hard to believe, but the similarities to some of the great wine producing regions in the world; the Rhône, Spain, Portugal and Chile are remarkable. The Verde Valley has the sunshine and heat to develop great fruit. The valley also has the rocky, poor soils that help the vines produce fruit with great flavors and concentration.

The poor soils and difficult growing conditions force the vines to struggle to survive. This struggle causes the vines to put their energy into developing less but higher quality, more intensely flavored fruit - just the characteristics the winemakers want to craft great wine.

Though substitutions may occur based on availability or fewer wineries may be visited due to individual tour dynamics, these wineries are regularly on the itinerary:


Alcantara is a dream venture created by Owner Barbara Predmore. Barbara and her husband Bob started the vineyard to provide their family and partners the opportunity to work and develop a vineyard community and winery, making wines that are comparable to the best of California and Europe. Barbara had spent four years of research and diligence using the best consultants from the University of Arizona and UC Davis, as well as support from her family at the noted Martin-Weyrich Vineyards in Central California. Alcantara Vineyard is perched on 87 acres of sloping terrain off the Verde River and Oak Creek. The newly constructed Tuscan Farmhouse serves as the tasting room for hosting the many friends and guests that visit from around the globe.


An Arizona resident for 30 years, owner & winemaker extraordinaire Rod Snapp is an entrepreneur whose roots go deep within the community, having been a chef, fireman, landscaper, publisher, developer and a founding participant in the first ever Sedona Jazz on the Rocks. His experience as a chef and long time passion for the art of cooking went hand-in-hand with fine wine and soon led Rod to his Enology/Viticulture apprenticeship and the purchase of his land. After six years of struggle and sacrifice, the dream of his own vineyard and winery was realized when Javelina Leap Vineyard & Winery opened in November of 2006.


Deb Wahl, owner of Oak Creek Vineyards & Winery, has heard many times that "good wine grows on gentle slopes with a river nearby," which is why her vineyard is located in beautiful Sedona, across from Oak Creek. In the higher elevations of the property, they grow Syrah & Merlot and in the lower portion they produce Zinfandel & Chardonnay. There is great sun exposure. Currently they have approximately 4000 plants on just over ten acres, and they're expanding more and more every year. They produce full bodied flavorful reds and lean whites in small batches, giving individual attention to each barrel.


At Page Springs Cellars, their goal is to create delicious wines that express the unique character of the landscape. They trust that their wines and winemaking convey their philosophies concerning family, education and living life to the fullest. Owner and Winemaker Eric Glomski feels strongly that growing grapes, making wine and raising a glass is a cultural ritual that fosters friendship, brings together families and unites communities. Good wine is not strictly the esoteric fare of nobility. Wine is for the people. Not only does Eric have a vineyard in Page Springs in northern Arizona, he has a vineyard in Willcox named Arizona Stronghold. Eric's vision is at the forefront of bringing Arizona wines onto the national stage. They look forward to sharing their passion and interest in wine with everyone.
