Wine Tasting Scottsdale - Enjoy A Relaxing Day In Scottsdale's Best Wineries

You may already know that Arizona is home to three of the top US National parks, the Grand Canyon, Saguaro, and the Petrified Forest. You may also know that Arizona is home to the Cactus League spring training baseball camps. But did you also know there are more than 120 wineries and wine tasting rooms with award-winning wines throughout the state?

At first, it can seem surprising that a dry desert climate could successfully produce premium wine. Think of similar environments in top producing countries like Italy and southern France. Grapes that grow well in those European countries have experienced tremendous success in Arizona wineries as well.

If you have visited the packed tasting rooms of Napa Valley, CA, then sampling the varietals along the Scottsdale Wine Trail will be a real treat. As the Arizona wine industry grows, the wineries have managed to hang onto that small-town feel. A visit to many of the large producers in the Napa Valley can feel like “combat tasting” in Napa, where you fight to get your next pour at the counter. In Scottsdale, you will be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy delicious wine from boutique wineries.

Spending a relaxing time in Old Town Scottsdale is the perfect opportunity to taste the wines, hear the stories behind the wineries, and learn more about this beautiful area. Old town tasting rooms in Scottsdale serve food pairings such as charcuterie boards and chocolate. Some have full menus with delicious food.

Some of the fantastic wine varietals you might find on a wine tasting Scottsdale experience include:

Red varietals:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Malbec
  • Grenache
  • Syrah
  • Merlot
  • Tempranillo
  • Petite Syrah
  • Sangiovese

White varietals:

  • Sauvignon Blanc
  • Roussanne
  • Chardonnay
  • Viognier
  • Riesling

Other fantastic wines you will find:

  • Signature Wine Blends
  • Sparkling Wines
