ARIZONA WINES

AREA WINERIES

Arizona is home to more than 83 licensed and bonded wineries located in three distinct areas throughout the state. Arizona’s high desert produces a climate similar to that of California wine country. The Sedona area elevation and climate contribute to the success of growing grapes. The desert heat is required for sugar production and the cool nights are important for acid retention. The temperature change allows grapes to develop unique complexity and character. In addition to quaint wineries, the Sedona area is known for its stunning array of red sandstone formations throughout beautiful evergreen trees. The formations appear to glow a brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The Red Rocks form a breathtaking backdrop for visitors, artists, hikers and wine connoisseurs.

Some of the area wineries include:

CHATEAU TUMBLEWEED

We believe in the high-elevation growing regions of the Southwest and think wine has something to teach us if we're willing to listen. We're grateful to be part of this evolving industry and to finally be free to do this our way.
