Verde Valley Wine Trail
Northern Arizona has developed the Verde Valley Wine Trail to help wine aficionados check out the region’s vineyards, wineries, tasting rooms, shops and restaurants. (Did I mention it’s the only Arizona wine trail?)
It highlights the red rock countryside and lush canyons surrounding Cottonwood, Jerome, Sedona, Clarkdale, and Cornville.
There are four wineries and five tasting rooms on the trail that offer a variety of wines. Of course, each has its own personality and distinct wines for visitors to discover along the trail. If your travels take you to the region in 2011, check out the trail online before you plan your route.
The wineries: Alcantara Vineyards (pictured), Page Springs Cellars, Oak Creek Vineyards and Javelina Leap Vineyards
The tasting rooms: Caduceus Cellars, Jerome Winery, Arizona Stronghold Vineyards, Pillsbury Wine Company and Bitter Creek Winery
