Wine is an ever-expanding industry in Arizona, and the wines of Arizona Stronghold are definitely among the boldest and the best. Although the tasting room we visited is in Cottonwood, the vineyards and winery are in Southern Arizona. Wine tastings are reasonably priced, and the cheese platter is very creative and enjoyable. (I would suggest requesting extra crackers, and they... More

Found a Groupon for tasting and cheese platter, so we started our vacation off here. Wonderful wines and knowledgeable, attentive staff. The cheese platter was great- not skimpy- and we ordered four skewers that were delicious. Left with a bottle of wine to bring back to New York!

We went as two couples in mid to late afternoon and had a delightful time on the patio. The wines were exceptional, the ambience was serene, the wine guy was very friendly and knowledgeable and the cheese tray that we shared was very good. What more could you want? Well, we had purchased a Groupon so it was very reasonably... More

One of the several spots we hit while adventuring around Cottonwood! The tasting room was nice and the wine better! The team pouring wine was extremely friendly and gave a lot of information about the wine, etc... It was great trying some of their limited production stuff and I will be on the look out for the more readily available... More

We visited on Saturday evening and were welcomed as soon as we arrived! Our server took GRRAT care of us and joked right along with us about one of our friends lack of wine knowledge. He even went the extra mile when the same friend inquired about purchasing corks for one of her children and gave her a whole bag... More

Our wine tasting experience at Stronghold in Cottonwood was a treat! We saved some money by going through groupon and received way more value than anticipated. Comfortable atmosphere, generous portions, different flight choices, unique cheese platter, free wine glass to take home and just friendly workers in general! I would highly recommend!

We stopped here on recommendation from another local business employee. It was a great value to use the groupon, which included two wine tastings with complimentary glasses and a cheese plate. Jadrian was very attentive and explained the wines well. We enjoyed the atmosphere and wine! Wanted to purchase wine, but didn't want to add too much weight to our... More

This is an adorable little progressive town. Very artsy – I loved it. We bought a metal javelin and had it shipped home. Stopped and had some wine and appetizers. Drove through this on the way to Jerome. Stop here no need to go further. So much fun.

Love that AZ is capitalizing on the winemaking industry. For the past decade, the media has been touting the health benefits of wine consumption in moderation, which has spurred interest in wine tasting. Wine tourism is becoming more popular, & the future looks promising for the winemakers here. Wineries offer vineyard tours / show the winemaking process &/or provide tasting... More
