First, I'll interview you to get a feel for the types of wines you like, to help direct you during your tour. Your 5 hour tour will begin with a pick up at your Air BnB in our climate controlled vehicle, and on the way to your first tasting experience, you'll learn about Arizona wine history, the local terroir and other Arizona historical facts. Your first stop will be Page Springs Cellars along beautiful Page Springs Road. You'll get a tour around the vineyard and you'll learn about the winemaker and the unique grape varieties they grow and source. Next, we'll travel to Old Town Cottonwood to samples award winning wines at 2 remote tasting rooms that grown their grapes in the Southern part of the State, Carlson Creek and Pillsbury Winery. Pillsbury Winery was the first in the state to win a double gold medal at the San Francisco Chronicles Wine competition. For the last two years they have submitted 14 wines to the competition and received 14 awards, including the best Malvasia Bianca in the Country! After your tour, you'll be returned to you AirBnB. Complementary water and light snacks such as granola bars and baby bells are included in your tour. Some locations also have delicious food you can purchase.
