Verde Valley Wine Trail
Located in beautiful Northern Arizona, the Verde Valley Wine Trail invites wine enthusiasts to experience a destination rich in history, beauty, and the production of exquisite Arizona wines. There are seven Arizona wineries and eight tasting rooms on the Verde Valley Wine Trail that offer a variety of skillfully crafted wines to satisfy any wine taster's palate. Every winery has its own unique personality and distinct wines for visitors to discover at each stop along the Wine Trail. Visit the great wineries and tasting rooms nestled in the red rock countryside and lush canyons surrounding Cottonwood, Jerome, Sedona, Clarkdale, and Cornville.
Cottonwood, the Heart of the Wine Trail
Located in the Verde Valley, Cottonwood is ideally situated above the heat of the desert and below the cold of Arizona's high country. Surrounded by jagged mountains on the south & west and to the north & east by mesas and buttes, Cottonwood is named for the trees that grow along the Verde River. The town grew from a small farming community and Old Town Cottonwood retains the charm of those early beginnings.
From tasting rooms and restaurants to shopping and hotels, see all that Old Town Cottonwood has to offer!
Artisan Distillery & Craft Brew Pub
Staying in Cottonwood is very affordable with moderately priced motels and B&B's.
