Where can you sip in Arizona wine both among the vines and in town? There are soooo many great options to pour into.
Like most wine regions, Arizona’s are not in the the heavily populated areas, such as Phoenix, the largest city in the state. Many wineries have brought their wines to the masses by opening tasting rooms in downtown Scottsdale and Tucson, creating urban wine trails residents and visitors alike can enjoy and sip local wines. But nothing beats getting out among the vines – if you can.
Many of the local Arizona wineries have been opening tasting rooms in Phoenix/Scottsdale and Tucson- both major hubs for the state. As result, it’s a lot easier to sip Arizona wine without getting out among the vines. Unfortunately, many local restaurants are still not carrying AZ wines (boooo!) so you will need to hit one of the tasting rooms or wine bars. The good news is, we have them all laid out for sipping adventures! More Phoenix Wine Tasting Rooms & Bars.
