Stopped in here with some friends after a kayaking trip around 5 pm on a Saturday and the place was packed and HOT inside! They need more staff to accommodate the amount of people inside. We had a groupon and got to take home our glasses after we did the wine tasting and also had a cheese platter which was... More

Been a few years since we stopped in. Still very comfortable, very nice knowledgeable staff. Will not rush you, stop in and enjoy the tasting menu. They also offer cheese platters and other small bites. Stand by the tasting bar or relax on the couches or at tables or in the patio in back. We are red wine folks so... More

I visited this location last year with my wife and it was an early stop on this year's trip to the Grand Canyon on a father-daughter adventure (we're both well past the drinking age limit!). The service was again excellent with my daughter being allowed to try a few different wines without having to pay for one of the expensive... More

Compared to a year ago when we visited, the service this time was really bad. We ordered two flights and the waiters forgot about us. We had two different waiters during our short visit and we waited a long time for our cheese plate and wines to arrive. On top of everything there were ants on the table we were... More

Really enjoyed this tasting room and we went to several. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. Great wine. I fell in love with the Rose and wish I could find it locally. It was a very enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend it.

Walking in the place is inviting. There is a living room style set up for tasting and an outside patio area. There a games to play while you have a glass of wine if you like and they have the BEST appetizers. The 4 for $20 is a great deal! The skewers are wonderful!! My son isn't that much into... More

We stopped here for some wine tasting on our way to Phoenix. We had a great experience. The cheese plate was fabulous and paired well with our wine samples. Very attentive and informative service. If the weather is nice, enjoy the back patio- beautiful space with nice flowers. They were generous with their samples as well.

I googled the vineyard and was directed to the tasting room in Old Cottonwood. Turns out the vineyard is quite a distance away. The space is cozy with comfy couches, outdoor tables and one large table for a group. The artwork on the walls is beautiful. I chose the white wine tasting. The samples were brought to me as I...

We had an enjoyable visit. We tried two flights, Red A, and Red B. It is difficult to gauge 10 different wines! On top of that our server threw in two extra "tests". What impressed us was the overall high quality of flavours & body. Over 50% tasted were "keepers". Whereas a visit to another "supplier" last year was not... More

We stop here every time we are in Sedona, as Cottonwood is a short drive away. The wine is amazing and the staff is always great.
