Page Springs Cellars and Wine Tasting

One of the best kept secrets in Arizona is the growing wine making community.  My Sister and I recently took a girl’s getaway trip to Sedona, and I made sure to include Page Springs Cellars on the road trip.  Page Springs is located between Sedona and Cottonwood, just 10 miles southwest of downtown Sedona.

Page Springs is a small, family owned vineyard.  The grapes are grown in vineyards surrounding the Cellar and nearby land, sectioned by varietal.  Breaking from Arizona expectations, Page Springs is most similar to the Mediterranean climate, without as much humidity.

The vineyard and Tasting Room are expanded from my last visit several years ago.  There is now ample covered parking and a lower deck for wine events.  The front porch seating and upper deck patio are heated for year round enjoyment.  The lower deck is closed in winter.  We sat outside on the upper patio in December sipping wine.  Ah, glorious!

Before we started our first wine flight, we met a few Members of the Page Springs wine club.  They were telling us about a recent Member’s only wine dinner held in the cellar.  Later, I asked one of the winemakers for a quick peak at the Cellar.

Page Springs produces some very good wines.  I prefer the dry, rich flavors while my Sister prefers a little more fruity.  We both enjoyed our wine flight selected for our tasting.  The staff at Page Springs is helpful for selecting wine flights and recommending specific wines to try.

The menu is also expanded from my last visit.  We filled up on two delicious appetizers (Bar Snacks on the menu) that left no room for anything other than wine.  We enjoyed our last glasses of wine in the lounge.  Live music is scheduled for certain weekend nights and we thoroughly enjoyed the one man band Dave Manning on keyboard and harmonica.2016-page-spring-cellars-dave-manning

Tours of the vineyard and cellar are available several times a day on the weekends and include wine flight and souvenir glass.  Be sure to check their website or call for exact times and availability, we just missed the last tour of the day.  Spring and Summer are best for vineyard tours to see the lush green vineyard and perfect temperatures to enjoy being outside in Arizona.

While completing our wine purchase, we each found a few reasonably priced hand crafted items for Christmas gifts.  If only all of my gift buying was this easy!2016-page-spring-cellars-merchandise

More Tasting Rooms are located in Cottonwood,  Jerome, and Flagstaff with vineyards scattered around Northern and Southern Arizona.page-springs

  1. I love wineries and those owned by families are the ones I love best. They give that personal touch on their tours as they are proud of their family business. I will need to consider this one next time!

  2. I’ve never had the experience of going to a Vineyard before, although I think going to a family owned one sounds really nice. I’ll be going through Arizona next year, I’ll have to put this on my places to go.

  3. I’ve heard that their wine scene is really growing. I’ve not done a lot of wine-tourism, but I love Arizona, so I think this would make a fun new addition to my AZ travels! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Wine tasting is such a great thing to do. Even better when you can eat matched foods. Looks like a great place to explore and I would never have thought them to be in Arizona.

  5. I enjoy visiting Sedona for the natural landscape but also for its art scene. I am happy to read that I can now add nearby wineries to the list. This is a great reason to visit the region again soon.

  6. This is such a lovely place that I wish to visit someday. I’m a big fan of wines and this place will surely be a happy place for me and for my tongue as well. I like how you rhyme your stunning photos to your words, very well written. Thank you so much for sharing about this one.

  7. I had no idea Arizona had vineyards. This would be a perfect girl’s road trip getaway. I love family owned businesses like this because they are way more intimate and informative 🙂

  8. I love visiting vineyards. It’s like going to the start of the process to drink the end result. Its great that they have live music on and a heated area.
    Thank you for sharing your experience.

  9. This sounds like the perfect tasting room! Sometimes they can get a little formal, but between the music, the patios and the good wine, I can see myself spending some serious time (and cash) here. I’m with you, the dry wines are usually among my favorites. I’m definitely putting Page Springs Cellars on my “must visit” list!

  10. I couldn’t stop a smile at the idea of that “only wine” dinner. Overall, looks like quiet a tempting place – both in terms of the wine it has got to offer and ambiance..
