Owner description: Alcantara Vineyards is a dream venture created by Barbara and husband Bob to provide their family and partners the opportunity to live the dream of growing a vineyard community and winery. It was in cultivating the vineyards and embracing the land that Barbara and her family soon realized there was a bigger picture in this hidden treasure along the confluence of two rivers. You’ll find Alcantara Vineyards has over 13,000 vines and offers 12 different varietals. While you sip wine and enjoy our peaceful surroundings, which include vineyards, a grass picnic area, the Verde River and bald eagles flying overhead, you’ll find you are part of our community and family.

As part of a wine tasting weekend, although there were many people, the wine tasting was not rushed and the finger foods were great.

We decided that our drive to Sedona from Scottsdale would not be complete without stopping along the way at a few of the vineyards. I was VERY pleasantly surprised by the wonderful wines at Alcantara Vineyards. Jennifer was manning the tasting room and she was both knowledgable and friendly. The best wines are on the $15.00 tasting list and are well worth the extra cost. Several of the reds (my passion) were just fabulous and we wound up buying a half case to carry back home with us (to Washington, D.C.). The zinfandel a two of the blends made the cut (2 bottles of each) which is saying a lot as we already had three suitcases and golf clubs to lug around!

In a lovely tuscan-like setting with lots of outdoor seating the thing that makes this experience stand out is that, after you have selected your tasting wines, you can grab a table outside and the tasting server will come to you! We did not take advantage of that on our maiden trip as we were thoroughly enjoying both Jennifer and the other two couples at the bar inside...but we came back another day just for the experience of being able to take in the scenery while enjoying some wines.

Coming from Virginia of many wineries and vineyards I was surprised to see how they grow grapes in AZ. As we drove down the dirt lane we approached vineyards on a spiral mount on each side of the road. I had never seen this type of layout. At the end of the road was a beautiful little tuscany building. We entered the winery into a tasting room with a bar and tables. Very busy and packed. We decided to continue outside to a pretty green grass lawn with tables and umbrellas overlooking more vineyards. The area was quiet and peaceful and very unexpected to see such lush green grass in the desert setting. We got a glass of wine that was very good and rested. Food available but we didn't eat but looked well prepared. Gifts there if interested.

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.

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!
