Just outside of Cottonwood, Arizona is prime wine country. One of my favorite vineyards is located there, Page Springs Cellars! So one weekend, I headed up north to enjoy the cool weather and sip on some wine.
When we arrived to the vineyard, we parked under solar structures that shaded the parking. This vineyard already had my vote, I love sustainability. From there we walked on to the beautiful property and requested a seat on the tasting room patio. It was busy and there was a short wait but nothing crazy.
The tasting room patio is elevated and feels like a tree house. You can catch glimpses of the entire vineyard in the distance. We ordered food and drink, nothing was disappointing. The Strawberry salad was fresh and the candied pecans we're a delicious crunch. From the brick oven, we ordered a Meat Pie and it was beyond good! Plus the wine flight was a perfect pairing.
After lunch, we went on the wine tour to learn more about the vineyard and the wine making process. It was so informative and led by a knowledgeable staff member, Lauren. She made the tour great, kept everyone engaged, and shared her passion. We got to try some of the red wine straight from the barrel! As the tour progresses you end up tasting 5 different wines during the tour. One especially stood out to me and so we decided to stay a little longer.
After the tour we went to the Picnic Window to pick up a bottle of wine and a snack. We sat on a deck overlooking the Oak Creek, enjoying our wine. We walked the grounds some more before making the trip back home to Phoenix.
Even before we left the parking lot, I was making plans to come back again!
