“Very good wines...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Especially for Arizona! Of all the wineries I've tried in this State, this is VERY good. The folks are nice, the winery is very pleasant. Yes you have to pay a tasting fee, and no, it is not refundable upon buying a bottle of wine, as done in California. Very good reds.

“Beast Desert Wine ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

I only like sweet wines, usually finding ice wines as desert wines- this sesert wine was better than a hundred dollar bottle from Canada! The cheese plate is not great and I wouldn't advise wasting your money on it unless you are starving. We were there as part of a package and kayaked to the winery: great beginner-level kayak trip and the Guide was very knowledgeable about the area. So worth the 2-3 hours time when combined with a kayak trip!

“Beautiful Setting with Average Wines”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This winery has a beautiful outdoor setting with umbrella tables and chairs. You can also bring your own foods to eat with their wines. Cheese and fruit plates can be ordered with the wines. Some of our wine had a very strange odor, and we could not drink it. The white wines were fine!
Be sure to have good directions to this winery since it can be difficult to find. It is better to visit during the cooler months if you are going to be outside.

“Unexpected in Arizona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Everything was surprising about this visit, from the beautiful setting to the excellent wines. We visited several others around the Verde Valley, but this was definitely our favorite. If you only visit one winery in central Arizona, make it this one.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

We were very surprised to find a vinyard in the Sedona area of Arizona. This place is a very "hands on" vinyard about seven years old. They have the usual tasting room....at a price...and a tour although you are welcome to browse their shop. We noticed that many who were there were part of an escorted tour. Their vinyard was remeniscent of an "old world" agricultural farm. Worth the look see if you are in the area. Check ahead of time to catch the tour hours.
