“Great place for a tasting flight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

The winery was pretty cool. Decorated with wood finishes, with a long bar for the servers, tall tables for customers and a couple of bars in the middle for tastings, the place has a clean and modern design. You can visit it to enjoy one of their wine tasting menus, savor a glass of your favorite Caduceus wine or get a souvenir glass, a t-shirt or a hat from their gift shop.

I have a whole review about this cool place in my blog:

“Wine Tasting at 10AM? Certainly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Came into town at 10AM after driving two-lane road with straight-drop cliffs into the valleys below. Jerome is a pleasant mining town built on the steeps slopes of the Verde Valley. First place I happened to come across was the Caduceus Cellars, offering tastings from several vineyards.

Wine tasting? At 10AM? Why not! Medium sized location, rustic interior, plenty of wine on display. Light on souvenirs and a great espresso machine. Our hostess was Abby. To start off, she is a knockout. What makes her even more attractive is she knows her wine. Really well. It was a genuine pleasure to talk wine with her, and when she learned I was in the service industry, she made sure to pour a couple of additional high-end wines to crown the tastings. My favorite - the Anubis, recently received in our area in Atlanta. Delicious.

The other enjoyable part of the visit was watching the look of lust on Abby's face as I described the cuisine at my place of employment. Hopefully I can return the favor of service should she have an opportunity to travel to Atlanta.

“What more can one add!? ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Just returned from Mendoza, Argentina (they do set the bar quite high) all in all I do concur with the TA reviews.

The location (old mining town) what a setting!! Romantic, surely to take you back in time & slow one down. Relaxing is not a bad thing, too bad it's a rarity for most of us in this country. We tend to feel if we don't run our lives at mock speed we are missing something. Hardly!
Jerome is the perfect place to reflect, breath & ENJOY good wine!

The place is truly well done! Nicely setup (warm and inviting) and the staff was truly friendly and accommodating.

Enjoy!!!

“Great wine, decent prices, and friendly staff! A MUST for any wine lover and of course for any Maynard fans =)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Husband and I stopped in here after our trip to Out of Africa. We have been following Maynard and his wine endeavors for some time now and have been waiting for the chance to get up here.

Our only complaint was all the hotels in Jerome and nearby in Cottonwood were completely sold out and we couldn't stay the night. Would have loved to have tried several more varieties of wine and had a nice (or any) place to lay our heads.

Our favorite out of the five we tried was the Diddler, superb and affordable! They have several different priced tasting trays available with very eloquently written wine descriptions. So hard to pick only 1!

Everything about the visit was perfect for us and really made such a long exhausting trip (long work week leading up to two full days of animal parks) worth it. The bartender who helped us was extremely friendly and polite. He had plenty of knowledge on the wine and was right there to refill out waters and give us any other wine we wanted to try. He had lots of suggestions for places to eat or check out in Jerome and was a pleasure to talk to.

We ended up taking a bottle of the Diddler home, a few t-shirts, and some tumblers.

Even if you aren't a fan of Maynard this place is well worth checking out. Great atmosphere, staff, and the wine is absolutely divine!

“Az Winery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Medium sized room, a locals tasting room feel.
Nice details to the tasting bar. Small plates of food offered. Staff did not provide wine club or wine info had to ask many questions, too bad. There are 2 wines labels. A 2nd label Merkin these are mostly blends avg price $27. Most of the fruit is sourced from New Mexico rather Arizona.
Top label is Caduceus
Limited production wines & most expensive...$50 per bottle. Here you get interesting Italian varietals Dolcetto's, Malvasia, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo but again mostly sourced from NM. Really enjoyed the wines even though they are a bit higher priced but they are limited available & quality is evident. Some of the best tasted in AZ. Some really great vinification happening here.
Nice spot in the cool town of Jerome
The other mile high town. Give it a try
Worth the trip.
