If you get a chance to do a 'walking on Main' event in Old Town Cottonwood, do it. We had the opportunity to taste at 6+ wineries all at once - most had an owner, winemaker or very knowledgeable staffer pouring. Some grapes are grown locally, and a lot of wine is made near Wilcox (SE Arizona). Ask around, some wineries have production facilities, some are 'just' tasting rooms (everything from modern to cactus kitsch), and a few are creek side with extensive decks or patios - there is likely one that's just what you were hoping for. A few have beer and/or spirits. Some have a cafe. Similar in quality to Temecula California imo, but not as mature as a region (smaller wineries; still experimenting with which varietals work best)

7 tasting rooms on the same street. Each have their highlight wine. Our two favorites were Burning Tree Cellars and Carlson Creek, but they were all fun to visit. Merkin Vineyards also serves lunch with many tasty dishes.

We go to the Verde Valley wine tour each year with several couples. We really enjoy our time there. The valley and Verde River is so nice in our hot desert. My one complaint is there is mostly dry wines. Hardly any sweet wine, they say because of the temps here, but I don’t buy it. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Not all people like dry wine. If they don’t get sweeter wines, were not going anymore.

The Verde Valley has at least a dozen wineries between Cottonwood and Jerome, with many centered around Old Town Cottonwood. However, we could not find any information about a wine trail or and organized map. We just used Google and found most of the wineries this way. Many of the wineries we visited here were not aware of a wine trail.

We drove from Mesa to Cottonwood (about 3 hours?)...parked and waited at the station for boarding. We had pre-purchased the first class tickets (about $100 each). We got on the train about 15 min prior to departure...We had a group of 6...seats were soft (very soft) benches with tables for food. The trip was along the river for a couple of hours and back...The trip was narrated...Finger food was served (mini sandwich, veggie plate and dip, chicken wings, choc cookies etc)..and about 4 oz of sparkling fruit juice. Trip is ok...slow ...walking is very tenuous...you have to be careful not to get thrown about by the rough ride..(not fun). Benches were too long and not comfortable....Other than sagebrush...nothing out of the ordinary to see...just a brush filled canyon...some city folk got excited about seeing 1 or 2 bald eagles...(we see them daily in Oregon)...mostly crows...other than that..a lot like driving through Nevada...I think the trip is greatly overpriced....but if you have money to waste and are bored looking to kill a few hours, trip is ok.
