What Is The Verde Valley Wine Trail?

The Verde Valley Wine Trail is a group of wineries scattered near Sedona in northern Arizona. The list of wineries along the wine trail is continually expanding but each winery offers a unique experience.

You may be surprised to learn the Verde Valley is one of Arizona’s three wine-growing regions. These wine regions are designated as AVA’s or American Viticultural Areas.

While the two largest AVA’s are located in southern Arizona, near the cities of Sonoita and Wilcox, the Verde Valley is the crown jewel AVA in northern Arizona.

Stretching between the towns of Jerome, Clarkdale, Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Page Springs / Cornville and Sedona, the Verde Valley Wine Trail offers many tasting rooms nestled within red rock country just waiting to be sampled.

Best Sedona Wineries FAQ’s

Let’s take a look at some of the most asked questions regarding Sedona’s best wineries.

Is Sedona A Wine Country?

When looking at a world map, the 34 to 45 degree latitudes north of the equator include the popular wine regions of California, Portugal, Spain, Italy and parts of France.

And if you look closely, Arizona is also included on this same latitude.

In northern Arizona, the warm days often dramatically change into cool nights and the elevation profile combined with the unique volcanic soils make this region perfect for growing grapes.

Sedona is slowly becoming the epicenter of Arizona wine country but in time will likely give the surrounding Verde Valley Napa-like wine status.

But the best part about Sedona wineries in our opinion is the proud local community who stand behind every bottle of wine produced and poured.

This community atmosphere is what makes Sedona an emerging wine hot spot.

Do Grapes Grow In Sedona?

Yes, grapes grow extremely well in Sedona due to the unique environment. But like many newer US wine regions, there is still much experimentation when it comes to grape varietals grown in the area.

Where Are The Wine Regions In Arizona?

The Verde Valley (or the Sedona region) is the only northern region to boast AVA wine status as of 2021.

The oldest AVA region in Arizona is Sonoita which is south of Tucson. This region currently has the largest number of wineries and was established in 1985.

Last but not least, the third region is southeast of Tucson near Wilcox in Cochise County. This AVA region was established in 2016.

These southern Arizona wine regions have large vineyards with many acres compared to the Sedona wineries. Sometimes wineries in Sedona purchase southern grapes to supplements their productions.

What Grape Varietals Are Grown In Arizona?

Arizona has a rich viticultural history dating back to the 16th century because Spanish Jesuit Priests planted grapes to make wine for many religious ceremonies.

But as grape growing in Arizona has evolved over the years and popular grape varietals include:

  • Chardonnay
