From Sedona, enjoy a leisurely drive west through the neighboring towns of Cornville, and Cottonwood till you meander all the way to the end of a dirt road that butts up against the Verde River. Here you will find Alcantara Vineyard, which is northern Arizona’s largest estate vineyard. Encompassing nearly 80 acres of of available land, this is the areas largest continuous vineyard. Producing about 15 different vines, annually ranging from fruity whites to big and bold reds, there’s sure to be here a wine to meet your fancy. For those liking desert wines, we love their Moscotto.
While enjoying your VIP wine tasting, you have the choice to sit in the comfort of the tasting room or out on the back lawn facing the vineyard. We can even take a stroll down through the vineyard to the wedding chapel located right on premises.
Also on the property is the confluence of Oak Creek and the Verde River. For those of you that may be enjoying Oak Creek while visiting Sedona, it actually ends or terminates into the Verde River. That connection point of two waterways, we call the Confluence, which they have a wine named after. In the limestone cliffs adjacent to where these rivers meet, you will see cliff dwellings dating back to the Anazi and Sinagua Indian cultures.
If your tour takes place on a Friday or Saturday, and we can get you to the vineyard by 11:30am, you get to enjoy vineyard tour from the knowledgeable staff of Alcantara.
